Early Learning Centre
Active Learners & Inquirers
The Early Learning Centre is the first stage– and an integral component of the IB PYP at ISBerne. In the ELC we aim to create a safe, secure and highly motivating learning environment that is both warm and inviting.
Through a variety of learning experiences, both structured and spontaneous, children are provided with the opportunity to develop a positive attitude, to solve problems, to make decisions, to develop confidence, independence and self-esteem.
Love Of Learning
The Early Years programme aims to develop the whole child. The learning experiences provided in the ELC are designed to promote the use of language, early concepts of numbers, and fine and gross motor skills. Play features strongly in the programme. Gentle guidance in play encourages children to explore, ask questions, invent, construct and solve problems. These guided activities enhance the children’s love of learning and stimulate their natural curiosity and desire to explore.
The Early Years programme is enriched by weekly visits to the gym and library, excursions to the nearby woods, playtime in their private playground and attendance at and active participation in whole school activities and school productions.
ISBerne encourages children to think and challenge and not just accept.
The teachers have quite a challenging task to balance so many different learning needs on a daily basis, and they seem to do it with ease.
The writing skills of my Kindergarten student improved amazingly!
My kids love going to school – That’s what matters!
The teachers at ISBerne are amazing. My children have been very lucky to have experienced so many teachers over the last four years.
Very enthusiastic and patient team which is important for a young and growing mind.
The teachers are passionate about their subjects and really focus on the children's individual learning.
I love the reasoned judgments inculcated in my child, and the ethical values taught in tandem with the general academics.
Our child enjoys ISBerne very much and feels comfortable at the school.
