Early Year Foundation Stage : Discovery / Nursery / Reception
EYFS & Reception
Inspired by the Waldorf pedagogy, TWA welcomes each child as a unique person. We strives to nurture capable individuals, who create meaning for their lives, and who become freethinking and acting individuals. TWA education seeks to educate the whole child in his “head, heart and hands.” It is based on a thorough knowledge of the inner life of the child and follows his developmental stages.
First, the child is brought to experience things actively and then to feel these things, before finally approaching them intellectually.
Our curriculum, whether it aims to teach English or French or Arabic, includes work on language, literacy, writing, maths and sciences. These teaching areas concentrate on the development and awareness of children’s receptive skills (listen, read and observe) and productive skills (speak, write and create).
For the Early Young Stage, TWA offers 3 complementary programs which are adapted to this age, but, above all, to the level of the child.
There are no barriers to entry. Everyone is welcome, regardless of their linguistic, school or cultural background. The academy is open to children of all origins and cultures.
Our role is to help our pupils develop their abilities, taking into account their personal aptitudes. We accept children, whether they are English-speaking, French speakers or even if their first language is neither of these.
Both those who arrive in September or during the course of the academic year can join the academy.
The child is followed individually and benefits from pedagogy which is adapted to their needs, potential, personality and aptitudes.
During every class the pedagogical team creates a communicative atmosphere where the children learn to express themselves as well as to listen to the teacher and to other pupils.
From the age of 3, children learn to communicate in front of others in the class.
In this way, they develop their self-confidence as well as their communicative skills, which will help them to develop as adults.
