At Kangaroo Kids Nursery Dubai, we aim to provide the children in our care with all the skills they need to become confident, able, and independent individuals. We are an Early Years Specialist Foundation Stage provider which understands and embraces children’s individuality. We know that children achieve more when their needs are understood and provided for.
The early years in a child’s life are crucial for preparing them for the next educational milestones like primary school and beyond. The children in our stimulating early years setting leave equipped with a passion for learning, excellent social skills; and a firm foundation of writing, phonics and mathematics skills.
The Foundation Unit at Kangaroo Kids Dubai:
We passionately follow the British EYFS Curriculum framework where all areas of learning are inter-connected with a continuous provision to support development. Every day the children arrive to carefully devised learning though play opportunities, where activities are multi-sensory and imaginative. The children receive daily Phonics, Early Writing, and Mathematics, which are delivered in small groups of 2-4 children with short bursts of participation to ensure the children remain interested and engaged. All activities are tailored each day to cover the 3 Prime (Communication and Language, Personal Social and Emotional Development and Physical Development); and 4 specific learning areas (Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the world, Expressive arts and design) within the British EYFS.
The children are gently assessed using the Development Matters/ EYFS Early Learning Goals to guide the teacher on the next steps for each child to maximise their progress. This is regularly updated on our parent app. Teachers meet with parents regularly to discuss their child’s progress and encourage a strong home-school connection to support the child in their learning journey.
By the end of Foundation Stage 1 most children will have achieved their learning goals, whilst many will have gone beyond the targets set; having benefited from high levels of individual attention. It is our firm opinion that young children between the ages of 3-4 years benefit significantly from the caring and bespoke Foundation FS1 unit we provide.
