British schools overseas
BEST Preschool activates under the accreditation issued by the United Kingdom Government’s Department for Education as a British School Overseas (BSO), meeting standards addressed and inspected by ISI – Independent Schools Inspectorate.
Extracts from the inspection report:
Children follow a curriculum based on the English Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) areas of learning and development, which lead on to the National Curriculum.
The school’s provision covers effectively the seven areas that must shape educational programmes in English early years settings, namely: communication and language; physical development; personal, social, and emotional development; literacy, mathematics, understanding the world, and expressive arts and design.
The children have access to a good range of extra-curricular activities which provide opportunities for them to enhance their learning and development.
There is a particular emphasis on outdoor learning and physical and mental health.
