Early Years - Ages 3 to 5

The early years are crucial years in a child’s education as they underpin all future learning. For this reason, we strive to provide a safe, nurturing and happy environment that is combined with educationally stimulating surroundings and activities.

As young children enter school with a wide range of different experiences, it is necessary to provide a well-planned and resourced curriculum that is able to target different developmental levels through first hand, multi-sensory experiences. Using the principles of the highly esteemed Montessori approach, which guides children to be independent and hands-on individual learning experiences we apply the objectives outlined in the English National Curriculum for Foundation Stage(EYFS). The seven areas of learning which underpin the EYFS and the education provided by Eaton in the early years are:

  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Physical development
  • Communication and language
  • Expressive Arts and Design
  • Knowledge and understanding of the world
  • Mathematics
  • Literacy

Through these learning goals, pupils are encouraged to develop abilities such as independence, social interaction, imagination, observation, exploration, and investigation. By using these new skills, they will discover how to use numbers and shapes, how to read and write, how to express themselves through painting, drawing, dancing and, above all, how to enjoy learning!

At Eaton, core classes remain an integral part of the early years these are supplemented with Cultural studies,  Geography, History, and Art in a stress-free, enjoyable manner.

Each class has 2 qualified teachers, and the teacher to student is to a maximum of 1:10 ensuring that indivisualised learning is possible Specialist teachers conduct PE, Swimming, Music, Drama, Mandarin, Bahasa Melayu. As with the rest of Eaton, there are extra-curricular activities (ECA)  like Taekwondo, Gymnastics, Little Ninjas, Drama, creative drawing, swimming available. The children take part in termly educational excursions and present performances for parents on a termly basis.
