General information about school fees, uniform, curriculum and more.
|Q1: How would a day in Early Years Education at Repton International School look like?
||Our three - five year olds enjoy a vibrant and fun-filled environment in which to explore, play and interact with both staff and their playmates. Every activity is an opportunity to have fun and learn.
For our Early Years children, the focus is on preparing them for ‘big’ school, but that’s not to say they don’t have fun doing it. They follow a balanced timetable, covering subjects such as music, dance and art to basic reading, writing, mathematics and computer studies. The children work towards the ‘Early Learning Goals’ of the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’.
|Q2: How is the food like?||The food is all freshly prepared and freshly cooked, and follows a menu that has been approved by a qualified nutritionist, so your child will get the five-a-day foods during meal and snack times. We aim to accommodate most food preferences whether for personal, cultural or medical reasons.|
|Q3: My young child still has a nap during the day. Is the School able to accommodate this?||If they are accustomed to taking a nap during the day, they will do so as often as necessary while attending Early Years education at Repton International School until they become adapted to the schedule.|
|Q4: What if I get the urge to ring up to find out what my child’s up to, can I call?||We pride ourselves on our communication with parents. You are very welcome to call at any time. We also encourage parents to share some time with us at the beginning and end of the day so that you can find out what your child has been up to.|
|Q5: Tell me about the staff.||Repton International School exclusively hires experienced educators and is committed to provide them ongoing professional development opportunities so they are well versed with the British Curriculum and up-to-date on pedagogical innovations, to enable us to provide the highest degree of pastoral care for your children.|
|Q6. How can I gauge my child's progress?||Each child’s teacher will monitor every child’s individual development very closely, paying attention to their physical, educational and emotional development. This information is recorded and will be shared with you at the regular review meetings or sooner if appropriate.|
