Here’s an overview of how we learn at JINS.
Jumeirah International Nurseries follows the British Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS), that is enriched with principles of Reggio Emilia and The Curiosity Approach.
All classroom and specialist teachers collaborate to create authentic and meaningful learning experiences that reach across the curriculum and engage the whole child.
Based on our unique MultiSmart Learning™ Programme approach, lessons are hands-on and interactive, designed specifically with the appropriate age and developmental level of each child.
The Education in Human Values™/ Positive Education philosophy at our nurseries emphasises the development of the child’s personality, social skills, and self-image. This balanced curriculum allows for teachers to differentiate their instruction and encourage the individual child’s strengths and abilities.
To ensure that our learners are confident and prepared for any school once they reach 6 years of age, we have adopted the International Preschool Curriculum (IPC) at our JBR and Palm Jumeirah branches for Year 1 students.
It is a world class, comprehensive and practical curriculum delivering academic, personal and international knowledge, skills and understanding, making it the most internationally accepted curriculum in the world.
OUR AGE GROUPS
Our classes are broken down into the below clusters:
The Little Learners is where the babies are encouraged to roll and crawl while the older babies learn to walk and attempt to feed themselves.
Babies have daily access to their own outside garden area and sensory playground. Natural objects and heuristic play are provided to stimulate interest and promote active exploration.
Each JINS Nursery is equipped with separate changing and sleeping rooms. We have the perfect setting to provide a relaxing environment to the children with a staff ratio within the baby rooms maintained at 1:3.
As the child crosses from the Little Learners to the Curious Beginners, child-initiated play is encouraged. Focus is given to development of language skills and fine motor skills, enabling children to move about confidently.
Our staff observes the children regularly, offering constant support. Potty training is normally typical during this year and our staff concentrate on helping the children become independent at routine jobs.
Children are most receptive to new information when they reach this age and it is the perfect time to inculcate independence, a love for learning and role-play.
Most of what children learn here go on to become strong habits in the future. Therefore, we pay maximum attention to each child to ensure that they receive the most benefit.
Children learn through role modelling and simulation. Opportunities are provided to help develop their social skills with additional learning techniques including assembly, interactive music, puppet shows and sing-a-longs.
At this stage, children’s play becomes much more evolved. The substantial experience of our staff ensures that the child’s interests are kept in mind while we support, extend and develop their understanding.
The focus is always on keeping the children interested, motivated and enthusiastic to learn and investigate further. Free flow into secure outside play areas, messy play, music, cooking, and creative crafts are some of the key activities utilised at this stage.
The children are provided with a myriad of learning opportunities and encouraged to use their skills in a range of situations and for a variety of purposes.
Through personalised lessons in Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World, Expressive Arts & Design and Sports, we provide extensive support for the children’s intellectual, physical and emotional wellbeing.
We encourage them to discover the world how they see it, to find the part that they play in it and to learn exactly what they are capable of.
Through personalised lessons following the International Preschool Curriculum (IPC) we provide extensive support for the children’s intellectual, physical and emotional wellbeing giving them the skills and knowledge needed for Primary School.
Our educators employ differentiated learning to suit each child’s individual development stage.
We closely monitor and track the child’s progress, providing parents with regular written assessments of their child’s accomplishments and attainment against the Early Learning Objectives of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Principles and Framework.
At the age of two, we provide a complete progress check with consultation and input from the parents.
Our checklist provides parents with a clear picture of their child’s development and enables early identification of development needs, as well as appropriate intervention and support strategies.
