At   Tenby   International  Primary   School,   Penang,  we are  committed   to  underpinning  our  provision  with  the four distinct   but  complimentary   themes  of  the   Early Years Foundation  Stage  in  our Nursery  and  Reception classes: A Unique Child, Positive Relationships, Enabling Environments, and Learning and Development. 

We believe that all children are entitled to the best possible start in their school life, both intellectually and emotionally, in order to enable them to develop their full potential. 

Our caring, dedicated, qualified and inspirational teachers aim to support each child's welfare, learning and development needs by:

• Recognising that all children are unique and special

• Providing a safe, secure and caring environment

• Fostering and  nurturing children's self-confidence  and self- esteem

• Teaching children  to  express  and  communicate  their needs and feelings in appropriate ways

• Encouraging  children's   independence   and  decision­ making, supporting them to learn from their mistakes

• Developing children's understanding of social skills and the values and codes of behaviour required for people to work    together harmoniously

• Supporting   children  to   develop   care,  respect   and appreciation of others, including those beliefs, cultures and opinions different to their own

• Understanding theimportanceof play in children's learning and development. Providing learning experiences in play that reflect children's personal interests and areas of curiosity in order to encourage and develop their natural desire, interest, excitement and motivation to learn

• Providing experiences which build on children's existing knowledge and understanding in order to challenge, stimulate and extend their learning and development

• Providing effective learning opportunities  in a range of environments, inside and outside 

Our  Early Years Foundation Stage  Curriculum  provides children  with  the  best  possible  start  to  their  learning journey, developing  a love of learning that will stay with them as they progress through the school and throughout their life.
