Early Years

The Foreshore School Early Years

Crèche (3 - 17months)

Our crèche is managed by our Crèche Coordinator, who is assisted by a nanny and supervised by the Early Years Foundation Stage Coordinator. The environment is hygienic, safe, stimulating, reassuring and secure, with a spacious and well-equipped play area.

The wash/changing room is adequately equipped with labelled compartments per child.

We also have Closed-Circuit TV (CCTV) cameras in the main area, sleeping room, changing room.

Preschool (18 Months – 3years) and Nursery (3 – 5years)

The preschool adopts a blend of the Montessori learning curriculum, the International Preschool Curriculum (IPC) and elements of the Early Years Foundation Stage programme. The Montessori programme entails five key areas of learning, which are practical life, sensorial refinement, mathematics, language, and culture. The key focus of this programme is to teach the children these area through play and their own innovation.

The IPC is the world leader in early childhood education and its curriculum is outcome-based, with learning areas such as numbers, size and measurement, shapes, colours, phonics, reading preparation, motor and social development, listening and speaking.

The Early Years Foundation Stage programme is very structured programme under the British curriculum, which focuses on active learning. The learning areas are divided into two segments:

Prime areas, which include the subjects:

  1. Communication and Language Development
  2. Physical Development
  3. Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Specific areas, which include the subjects:

  1. Literacy Development
  2. Mathematics
  3. Understanding the World
  4. Expressive Arts and Design

The nursery school focuses primarily on the Early Years Foundation Stage programme (EYFS).

What Your Child Will Benefit From A Crèche/Preschool

In our fast changing world, parents are often faced with having to make the decision of getting a nanny, midwife, nurse, or family member to care for their babies and toddlers. While this is good for the child, you must also think of what your child stands to gain in a more intentional and structured environment.

It goes beyond the aesthetics of a modern day class. It’s about offering long lasting social, economic and academic benefits for these special ones. Studies have shown that children, including babies and infants of 6 months to 4 years benefit such things as quality instruction, structure and social lessons.

These are what your child stands to gain at TFS Crèche/Preschool.

Regular Schedule/Activities

Our Crèche and preschool have structured programmes developed from the British National Curriculum, which has been broken down into various activities that have been tailored to meet the needs of each child and aid development in different areas of learning. Some of these activities include; rhymes/songs, storytelling, water play, sensorial activities etc.


Your child has the opportunity to spend time with peers in a supervised and safe environment. During interaction, they learn problem solving skills, how to share and their personalities emerge as their minds grow. It also serves as an opportunity to interact with other adults who serve as mentors and provide positive guidance. Our care providers have been trained to respond to children’s vocalizations, provide encouragement, show a positive attitude and discourage negative interactions.

Smoother Transition To Nursery

Infants who start school early easily adjust to formal schooling. They settle into routines easily and hardly experience separation anxiety.

Social And Economic Benefits For Parents

Parents experience less anxiety and fear on how their children are doing when left with care providers in a structured environment. In other words, you can get a job or go back to work without having to bother if your child is safe or not. Even for stay-at –home mums who run their businesses from the comfort of their homes, enrolling your child in our crèche and preschool affords you that “me” time to meet your set goals and deadlines.

Higher Cognitive And Academic Achievement

Studies in the United States have shown that young children have higher cognitive and academic achievement scores as teens if they spent time in a high-quality daycare as young children. Of the more than 1,300 children studied, over 90 percent had been in the care of someone other than a parent before the age of 4. The study defined “high-quality” daycare as facilities that provide extensive interaction with care providers, support, and cognitive-boosting activities.
