“Play Is The Work of the Child” – Maria Montessori.
Learning is best through play
We take play very seriously at British Early Years Centre. The curriculum balances child initiated play and teacher led play. We believe that children should be free to choose the type of play, the toys and activities themselves during free play time, in much the same way as Motessori learning. It is therefore our responsibility to make available to the children, a wealth of resources and role play areas.
Adult led play is more of a balance of the different types of play. We like ensure that every child has daily opportunities to develop fine and gross motor skills as well as developing their creativity and imagination. Role play is an incredible important part of the curriculum as it allows language and knowledge to be developed extremely rapidly in a fun and exciting way.
A Reggio Emilia Approach
Children are motivated through choosing projects based on their own interests and experiences.
Children learn to be independent by guiding the direction of the learning. The teacher is a partner who provides learning opportunities.
The environment acts as the third teacher and the children never stop investigating

Nutritious home cooked meals
Research shows that healthy eating habits taught in a child’s early years are strongly linked to both health and intelligence later in life.
Learning to cook for themselves and grow their own fod allows children to take ownership of what they eat.
Picky eaters learn to love healthy eating through a variety of means. By substituting certain unhealthy ingredients such as flour for oats, or rice for quinoa or by adding beetroot to mash potato, not only are our meals healthy but they become an exciting part of the day.
Our meals are freshly cooked onsite everyday using the finest organic farm to table ingredients. Our menu has been designed to offer the right balance of vitamins, minerals, proteins and fibre that children need to stay strong and healthy, boosting their growth and immune systems.
Allergen and Gluten Free
Your child’s well-being is the most important aspect of what we do. As well as minimising all common food allergens from the school menu we have worked hard over the last two years to develop our own range of soap, shampoo and cleaners which are allergen and fragrance free. We are now confident that all our products have the best ingredients without any harmful chemicals.
Air Quality Monitoring
Bangkok has seen higher air pollutants in recent years. Whilst these pollutants are at a level considered ‘safe’ for the majority of the year there are times when the PM 2.5 levels become ‘hazardous’, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO). At BEYC we use Air Visual Pro monitors to display real time data for PM2.5, CO2, Temperature and Humidity. This data is available for parents to check via our website. Levels are monitored throughout the day and we act in line with our policy whenever pollutants become too hazardous.
“A Caring environment is a learning environment” – Laura Henry
Socially and environmentally Responsible
It is vital for children to understand the cause and effect that humans have had on the environment, how climate and wildlife have been permanently affected as well as wealth inequality around the world.
Using the scientific process to conduct experiments, children are able to learn first hand about the real life threats to their planet and most importantly how we can tackle these threats. Project-based topics such as recycling, pollution, renewable energy, waste, overpopulation and deforestation are taught from Foundation to Year 1 and children learn how humans have impacted on their planet.
Awareness-promoting campaigns as well as community charity events, all play a vital role in the children’s understanding of the social problems the world faces.
It is our goal to empower our children the with knowledge to make a difference in the world, reducing their own personal impact on the Earth but also in turn, to educate and influence others around them to do the same.

What The Parents Say
Our son attended the school for 3 years, and in that time, learnt about Michaelangelo and David Bowie, developed a fierce passion for learning new things, especially science, and most importantly, grew socially, with teachers who helped him navigate emotions and interactions. Some say teachers are meant to instruct and parents to educate, but there’s a whole lot of education going on at BEYC too. We are grateful to have been part of its family during our son’s crucial early years.
Sze and Christian
From what our son, Akira, narrates us every evening, we are assured 100% that BEYC is all about “learning”. Thanks to phonics, in which the school particularly excels, Akira can read and write simple sentences. And, because of this newly found ability, he seems to absorb new information faster now, and is more eager to explore new topics such as science. Before BEYC, he was not much interested in art, but after a year in the school with a great art programme, he now begs us to buy paper and water colour. We find all the teachers very dedicated and professional, showering children with just-right amount of loving care and discipline.
