Our Vision – Let them discover their own wings!!!

The Kindergarten section of the academy educates children aged 3 and 4 years old.

The journey to success at IGCSE and Advanced level begins in the Kindergarten section, which provides the foundations for future progression and achievement.

At SVA we are committed to the development of strong thinking skills in our youngest children. Teachers create learning conditions that help children develop these abilities through exposure to all manner of expressive, communicative, and cognitive experiences.

The overall aim for kindergarten children is to help them to become happy, confident and tolerant, able to function, and be successful in future. They should become effective communicators with a confident grasp of spoken English by the time they complete kindergarten.

They should be able to form positive relationships with a respectful and thoughtful approach to other people.
They should become self-motivated, independent, creative and critical thinkers embarking on a life-long love of learning.

To develop these skills and abilities the Kindergarten focuses on the three guiding principles of the English Early Years Foundation Stage:

1. The Unique Child
Recognising the ‘unique child’ is central to our practice. Starting with what the child enjoys and this fostering to teach at their own pace enables us to help children achieve their full potential.
Monitoring and assessing their progress to inform planning and next steps, and to report to parents, is done using the Development Matters document and through their own personal Learning Journeys.
We plan our routines and activities through topics that relate to children’s individual needs and interests. They are designed to be inclusive and across all areas of learning. They provide the basis of our practice and the foundation for future learning.

2. Positive Relationships
Within our unit we promote a happy, positive approach, respecting individuals yet working together towards our common goals. This extends to children, staff, parents and the wider community. This warm and caring environment promotes a responsibility to, and for each other and an open and inclusive attitude towards others.

3. Enabling Environment
Our environment is organized to cover all areas of the Early Years curriculum using both the inside and outside spaces. It allows for individual and group sessions and promotes different levels of activity where children can discover, experiment, create, imagine, and take risks and rest.

‘Free Play’ is central to our routines. It allows children to choose what they want to do, how they want to do it and when to stop and try something else. Such type of unstructured free play is critical for healthy development of a child. It helps children learn how to work collaboratively, to share, to negotiate, and to resolve conflicts. When play is child-driven, children practice decision-making skills, move at their own pace, discover areas of interest on their own, and ultimately engage fully in the passions they wish to pursue………..

The unit is open, light and spacious with the most up-to-date equipment and resources.

All of this is designed to enable our children to become strong critical and creative thinkers of the future.
