International Preschool Curriculum for Boys & Girls Ages 3-6:
We encourage our boys and girls to reach their personal and academic potential whilst nurturing their curiosity and encouraging individuality and creative thought. The English School of Istanbul’s ethos is caring, student-centred and international. We offer every opportunity for our students to reach their full potential.

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
The EYFS framework sets the UK standards for learning, development and care for children from birth to five. The curriculum is built around four principles:

Learning and Development
The English School of Istanbul focuses on ensuring young children learn through play and exploration, with support for each individual. We work towards the following specific goals to help us all work within the framework:

- Creative Development, centred around building children’s imagination.
- Physical Development, relating to developing physical skills and understanding.
- Welfare, ensuring we are all aware of our responsibility for children’s welfare.
- Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy, focusing on number work, mathematical ideas and thinking.
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development, helping to build confidence, concentration, independence and respect.
- Communication, Language and Literacy, developing speaking and listening skills and beginning to read and write.)
- Knowledge and Understanding of the World, helping children investigate and think about their place in the world.

A Unique Child
At the English School of Istanbul we focus on how children develop; we recognise they are all different, but should be treated equally. Positive relationships and good communication are vital. Children need to learn about risks and safety, how to make good choices and how to stick to boundaries.

Positive Relationships
The theme is about children learning to manage their feelings and build relationships. We respect all kinds of families and aim to develop a positive two-way relationship with parents. We will support, listen and work with the children at The English School of Istanbul to help them learn.

Enabling Environments
We plan and check on each child’s progress and make every attempt to involve parents and the local community. We ensure that inside and outside spaces of the nursery are safe, interesting, challenging and engaging. Our carers support children when they move on, working as a team to help children succeed.

Activities
All of the activities at The English School of Istanbul Preschool seek to enhance our students’ education. ESI children learn through play and exploration. Art, music, drama, dance and other extra-curricular activities form essential components of a modern education.
