The main area of importance for our British early years international pre-school and kindergarten curriculum near Sathorn, Bangkok using the EYFS curriculum is the social and emotional development of the child.
Attending classes at Noddy by Elizabeth prepares children for the future and their formal education. It teaches them compassion and how to behave in public and around their peers. The British Early Years curriculum that Noddy teachers focus on benefits the child’s personal, social and emotional development. It also helps the child improve their communication and English language skills. The curriculum also helps the child develop physically. The physical development helps them improve the motor skills they need for drawing, painting and working with play-dough, as well as climbing, running, balancing and exploring the world around them.
