"Play is the highest expression of human development in childhood, for it alone is the free expression of what is in a child's soul." Friedrich Frobel
At Horizon International School we foster a child-centred approach to encourage pupil voice and pupil choice. We feel it is vital children are given opportunities to make choices and express their own ideas. We capture best practice in Early Years from the UK and around the world, to develop learning skills in a rich play environment. Children develop more rapidly during the first five years of their lives than at any other time. That is why the foundation years are the building blocks for life!
At Horizon, children learn and develop every day with their own class and with children in other FS1 and FS2 classes. They develop a sense of belonging in their classroom environment and they also learn within stimulating shared learning zones. Children have the opportunity to explore and lead their own learning, with the scaffolding and support of highly skilled teaching and supportive staff.
At Horizon, you will see children engaged and actively involved, using quality resources to enhance their own learning. Horizon Early Years Foundation Stage is a warm and nurturing environment with positive relationships between staff, children and parents at the heart. You will see teachers, teaching assistants and parents interacting, supporting and challenging children to ensure that they are safe, happy and reaching their full potential.
