Babies to Age 3 (up to Foundation Stage 1)
Learning Catered to Every Milestone.
Our broad and balanced Early Years (EYFS) British curriculum for children aged 45 days to 3 tears old takes into consideration the individual needs of every child – allowing them to grow at their own pace. We encourage them to make decisions and share ideas, letting their imagination and interests take the lead.
Here are the learning principles which shape our learning programme:
- A Unique Child: Our staff keenly observe, monitor and understand your child’s development and learning, identifying all the child’s needs, requirements for additional support, inclusion, safety, health and well-being.
- Positive Relationships: Our staff foster a sense of belonging in your child, and are sensitive and responsive to your child’s needs, feelings and interests. They also support and build your relationship with your child. We get to know you, your child and learn about the values, expectations and the factors that shape your lives at home and in your community.
- Enabling Environments: Our staff provide a stimulating, extremely well-resourced learning environment to your child with rich learning opportunities. They also provide opportunities for you to be involved in your child’s development at the Nursery.
- Learning & Development: Our staff provide your child challenging and playful opportunities for their continuous learning and development.
With 9 vibrant branches in Dubai, JINS provides rich learning environments that ignite children’s imagination and stimulate discovery and exploration.
Our Reggio-inspired spaces, state-of-the-art facilities and the interactive ‘Learning Pod’ concept at our centres are unique.
Children have access to large, bright classrooms and outdoor environments making it a welcoming space where children explore through sensory and physical play whilst also forging a strong connection with nature through our outdoor mud kitchen and garden areas.
We believe that the early years are critical to your child’s development and later life. At JINS, children ‘learn through play’ and hands-on activities, which not only impacts their understanding and comprehension of the world around them, but also helps them to become creative, confident, and independent little learners. We also promote the use of Reggio inspired learning resources and open-ended materials that encourage creativity and problem-solving.
JINS’ early learning curriculum is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework that is further enriched through the integration of STEAM, Positive Education, and principles of the Reggio-Emilia and the Curiosity Approach to bring hands-on learning experiences to life.
Our highly qualified and dynamic teaching team creates authentic and meaningful learning experiences that embrace the individuality of each child, allowing them to progress and develop based on their unique interests, abilities and aptitude.
The Foundation Stage is a warm and nurturing environment, where each child is valued and made to feel safe and secure in their surroundings.
Here is the core framework of our learning programme featuring the areas most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning:
3 Core Areas of Learning
- Communication & Language: In this area of learning, children are provided opportunities to experience a language-rich environment, to become skillful communicators. The children learn to express themselves, speak, and listen in a range of situations. Speaking and listening skills further develop the love for stories, books, and skills for future reading and writing.
- Physical Development: In this area of learning which is fundamental to everything young children do, children develop through play. We provide opportunities for children to be active and interactive and to develop their coordination, contact, movement and manipulation. For example, riding a toy tractor, organising the play farm or rolling out some playdough.
- Personal, Social & Emotional Development: In this area of learning which focusses on emotional wellbeing, children learn about who they are, how and where they fit in, and learn to feel good and confident about themselves. They also develop an understanding of having respect for others, social competence and a willingness to learn.
As your child grows, we ensure that the prime areas help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas of learning given below:
4 Specific Areas of Learning
- Literacy: In this area of learning, children are given access to a wide range of books and reading materials including short stories and poems to develop their literary interests.
- Mathematics: In this area of learning, children learn counting, sorting, matching, pairing, seeking patterns, making connections, working with shapes, space, volume, and developing appropriate mathematical vocabulary.
- Expressive Arts & Design: In this area of learning, children make connections between different things and people through our incorporation of art, music, dance and movement (to music), role play, drama and imaginative play.
- Understanding the world: In this area of learning, children develop crucial knowledge, skills and understanding which help them make sense of the world. This forms the foundation for later work in science, design and technology, geography, history, and ICT which they will study in school.
Rich Experiences to Give Your Child’s Educational Journey a Head-start.
Learning happens in many different places and at different times. We place great emphasis on experiences and learning opportunities outside of the classroom.
At JINS, every child that joins us goes on an individual learning journey to fulfill their potential. We take a holistic approach and support our children with enriching learning opportunities that take them beyond academics, including classes in Arabic, French, Arabic, Russian, Gymnastics and Ballet.
