EARLY YEARS CENTRE (EYC)
Our Early Years Centre offers our youngest children an exceptional first educational experience through the British Early Years Foundation Stage. At EYC we believe in providing a happy, secure, enriched environment in which children feel valued and have the self-confidence to become lifelong learners. Our learning environments both inside and outside, are well resourced offering a range of multi-sensory learning opportunities.
In Malaysia, GIS EYC is the only school that integrates Jungle School programme - an outside-of-the-classroom learning - into our curriculum. This is a hands-on programme based on the ‘Forest Schools’ approach in Europe, that enables children to take managed risks and become actively involved in their immediate natural environment.
Throughout their time at EYC, our young learners have opportunities to follow their interests and take ownership over their learning. This is encouraged through providing first-hand experiences to create a sense of awe and wonder about the world around them.
