Baleares Nursery and Early Years Department

Baleares Nursery and Early Years Department caters for pupils aged 3 to 5 years and is an integral part of Baleares International College, San Augustin Campus.

The Nursery aims to provide a happy, secure and caring environment in which the pupils feel safe and nurtured. This, combined with educationally stimulating surroundings and activities, encourages our pupils to develop their inquisitive nature and learn at their own pace.

Our young pupils gain knowledge through first hand, multi-sensory experience. Through constructive play, pupils are taught a solid curriculum based on the English National Curriculum Foundation Stage. This includes the following areas:

  • Personal social and emotional development
  • Communication, language and literacy
  • Mathematical development
  • Understanding of the world
  • Expressive arts and design
  • Physical development

Pupils are encouraged to develop abilities such as social interaction, imagination, observation, exploration and investigation. By using these new skills, they will discover how to use number and shape, read books, write, paint, draw, dance and above all enjoy learning!

Throughout their time in this department, our pupils' achievements are celebrated and monitored. Parents are involved at every stage, and are regularly updated on their child's progress.

The Nursery and Early Years Department works very closely with the school's Primary Department, to ensure that our pupils have a seamless transition into the primary classes.
