In school activities taught by our skilled team of teachers; the programme trains and develops all pupils to become active learners, creative artists, confident performers and global communicators.
Parents are able to choose what age-appropriate extracurricular activities they wish their child to undertake within this portion of the programme.
This removes the need for stress at home due to homework requirements, and allows for more of that ever so essential family quality time.
At The Arcadia Preparatory School we acknowledge that children learn best through first hand experience in relation to themselves, their senses and the world around them. For this reason, we have designed the Early Years Explorers (EYE) programme.
This approach is based on the concept that powerful learning is built upon harnessing children’s natural curiosity in ways that help them to develop new skills and understanding in context with their environment.
The programme provides a firm foundation for transition to the National Curriculum for England, which children move to in Year 1
