Why should we choose Early Years Foundation Stages (EYFS)


Nurturing Well-Rounded Development for Your Little Explorer

Personal, Social & Emotional Development:

We foster a positive self-image and teach children to value others. Through positive relationships and respect, we guide them in developing essential social skills, understanding emotions, and building self-confidence and awareness.

Understanding the world
Exploration is key! We help children make sense of the world and technology through engaging activities like computer play, science experiments, music time, and dedicated events. It’s all about creating a rich learning environment that sparks curiosity.

Physical Development
Healthy bodies, active minds! Our outdoor environments provide the perfect space for children to be active, enhancing their coordination, control, and spatial awareness. We teach them the importance of physical activity and guide them in making healthy choices regarding food and exercise.

Communication & Language
Expressing themselves confidently! We create an environment with diverse languages, fostering understanding, speaking, listening, and attention skills. Through engaging activities, children build their vocabulary, express thoughts fluently, and convey meaning to others.

Expressive arts & Design
Unleashing creativity! From construction and role play to musical movement and creative activities, we provide ample opportunities for children to explore and express their ideas and feelings, nurturing their imagination.

Mathematics
Building a foundation for numbers and shapes! Through hands-on activities and everyday objects, children explore patterns, compare, sort, match, order, sequence, count, and solve practical problems, developing a solid understanding of mathematics.

Literacy
A love for words! We encourage children to connect sounds and letters, fostering a passion for reading and writing. With access to a variety of reading materials, we ignite their interest, teach them how to handle books carefully, and help them understand the meaning behind every word and picture.

Join us at our preschool, where every day is an exciting journey of exploration, growth, and learning!

Why is Preschool important? How we prepare the children for Primary School

In the EYFS, play is a very important part of your child’s development and most learning will be introduced through a mixture of carefully planned play and some adult-led focused activities.

Don’t be too concerned if your child says that they have been playing all day – it just means that they have been lucky enough to have experienced staff who have made their learning fun and enjoyable! As the Reception year progresses, the learning may start to become more formal, ready for Primary school and the National British Curriculum.

1. Phonics
Phonics is a big part of Kindergarten. Your child will continue to expand on their knowledge of phonics and will probably surprise you with just how quickly they develop their reading. The Phonic lessons are fun, pacy sessions which involve games and tasks. The KG children will learn tricky words, spelling rules and how to sound out and blend to aid them with their reading and writing.

They will probably be encouraged to ‘have a go’ at spelling when writing independently, by phonetically sounding out words. Their teacher may well ask them to ‘write it like it sounds’ and, as the weeks go by, they will learn the correct sounds to replace those guesses.

3. Maths skills
Maths lessons in KG class tend to be enjoyable, with plenty of hands-on activities. Your Kindergarten child will count with objects and work in groups to explore shapes and pattern. Now that they are using numbers over 20, they will learn to use a 100 square to help with their adding and subtracting. Number bonds will also be reinforced.

They will learn to count forwards, backwards, in 2s, 5s, 10s, 20s, and they will double and halve. They will do maths inside and outdoors and, because we work in a very cross-curricular way in Kindergarten, he/she will be talking about maths during other subjects, for example; while measuring ingredients for cooking (DT), drawing tables to record experiments in science or drawing maps in geography.

4. Beyond literacy and numeracy
There are a wide range of topics covered in Kindergarten, and your child will undoubtedly have their personal favourites. Some of the Kindergarten activities include:

  • Experiments (science) product design
  • Learning the history of things (history) and about the local area we live in (geography)
  • Dancing, playing games and using gym apparatus
  • Painting, drawing and more creative processes (art)
  • We also develop their social skills and empathy for each other during RE and circle times. Kindergarten is an important year for your child’s increasing independence. The days are so varied and busy, the hours just fly by!

Ready for school – how can you tell?
‘School readiness’ in children includes many different skills and behaviours, such as:

Social skill
Being able to get along with other children, demonstrate basic manners, assert themselves, and being able to play independently as well as with other children.

Emotional maturity
Being able to manage their emotions, cope with minimal adult contact in large groups, focus on tasks, follow directions and instructions from teachers, cope with the stress of the new school environment, and understand the rules.

Language skills
Being able to talk and listen to adults and other children, speak clearly, communicate needs, understand stories, and begin to identify some letters and sounds.

Cognitive Skills
Basic number sense, basic thinking skills, being able to wait and take turns.

Physical health and coordination
Basic health, fine motor skills (such as being able to grip a pencil and turn pages in a book) and physical coordination (being able to run, jump, climb, and play ball).

Independence
Basic skills to manage their needs without adult supervision, such as going to the toilet, dressing, unwrapping their lunch and managing their belongings.

If you are not sure whether your child is ready to start big school, talk to your child’s preschool/ kindergarten teacher or early childhood educator – they will be able to help you with assessing your child’s development and readiness for school.

How do you Group Children?

We assign each child to a class that is tailored to their age group and specific learning needs as outlined by the EYFS guidelines.

While we understand that you may have preferences for which class you’d like your child to be in,  please rest assured that we have carefully considered each child’s needs when assigning them to their class.

Once your child starts a year, they will remain in the same class for the duration of that year. We’ve found that this helps children feel secure and develop strong bonds with their classmates and teachers. If there are any concerns about your child’s progress, we’ll be sure to communicate with you regularly so that we can work together to support your child’s learning and development.


Back to Index

Do you offer extra-school activities?

Yes! We have activities ranging from cooking to dancing, music lessons, gardening and creative workshops. We do our best to renew these additional activities frequently (termly as much as possible) to keep children’s interest and engagement to their fullest.

All our activities are guided by professionals, whether carried out directly by the school or by service providers.

The activities are all additional and subject to space availability.

We are not yet in Bali, or the school is already full – Is it possible to register on a waiting list?

If you are not currently in Bali, there is still a chance for your child to secure a place in the school. You can guarantee a spot in the class for your child by paying the registration fee, provided that there is available space. The remaining tuition fee can be paid upon arrival.

Please keep in mind that the registration fee is non-refundable, even if your child is unable to join the UKC for any reason.

Once you confirm your child’s attendance and officially register, you will need to pay the difference between the registration fees you have already paid and the fees required at the time of entry into the school.

However, if you are already in Bali and there are no available spots at the time of application, your child may be placed on a waiting list based on their age group. To be placed on the waiting list, you need to submit a written request and the completed registration forms. You will be notified immediately when a spot becomes available.

Please note that these fees are subject to change from year to year.

If my child is sick, can I get a refund or a make-up session?

We know that life can be unpredictable, and sometimes children may miss school due to illness or family obligations. That’s why we offer make-up days to ensure that your child doesn’t miss out on any valuable learning opportunities. As a preschool, we have children attending the centre for 3, 4 or 5 days a week, and we make sure that our teacher-to-student ratios are in line with EYFS requirements every day.

To comply with regulations, we allow a maximum of three make-up days per term, but if your child misses school for a valid reason, we’re happy to provide make-up days.

If a child misses school due to illness or family obligations such as a wedding, baptism, or death:

  • You notify the school in advance (minimum 48H)
  • You provide valid supporting evidence ( ex: medical report).

Please note that if you have already used the maximum of three make-up days for the current term, we will not be able to provide any refunds.


Back to Index

Is there a penalty fee for late payment?

Every payment, either by term, by semester or yearly, must be paid in full and before it begins, according to our school calendar.
If payments aren’t made in due time, then a penalty fee applies, according to our school handbook.

We paid for a specific period, but we have to leave sooner. What about the fees already paid?
