The Foundation Of Self-Confidence
“Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfill their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life chances’’

A lot of care is taken in the planning and delivery of the curriculum which is a balance of child-led and adult-initiated activities to meet the needs of all groups of students.
The Apple International School believes in fostering the relationship between home and school in the wider community. The young learners feel secure, safe, and happy in the nurturing environment of the foundation stage.
Integration of STEAM, theme-based learning, and coding into the curriculum is an intrinsic feature of learning in the Foundation Stage. Students’ well-being and a holistic approach towards developing intellectual, artistic, creative, and imaginative potential in students are at the crux of everything we do in the Foundation Stage, ably supported by pedagogical approaches – Reggio Emilia and Montessori Principles of children’s learning and development in addition to the EYFS curriculum approaches. The curriculum has been designed keeping in mind the 21st-century learner and is a harmonious blend of best practices used in early years settings.
By the end of the Foundation Stage, students will be confident and comfortable in the school environment. They will have the knowledge of core concepts in order to prepare them for the National Curriculum for England in KS1
