As the first year of compulsory education between the ages of 4-5 as part of the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) framework, Foundation Stage 2 (FS2) is a fundamental year in your child’s learning journey. From September 2022, Emirates British Nursery will be offering this exciting year group at our Mirdif and Motorcity branches. We’ll outline some of the key advantages about completing Foundation Stage 2 (FS2) at the same nursery in Dubai below.
1. The transition to primary school is less daunting
Starting nursery a year earlier in Dubai allows children to spend longer in an environment they are familiar with and make the step up when they are a year older – a year can make all the difference to a child’s confidence.
Class sizes are smaller in our nursery in comparison to the majority of primary schools; this allows your child to develop socially, emotionally and academically in a smaller classroom environment in a nursery that they are already comfortable with.
Children moving from FS1 to FS2 will also see the same familiar faces of our EBN family around the nursery, even if they don’t have the same teachers. All of these factors combined will help your child to feel more confident and secure when they make the transition to a school in Dubai or elsewhere.
