The Woodland Journey

The Woodland Journey is a pathway to success.  It carefully builds upon earlier stages, to support the child’s natural dispositions and curiosities.

It is a journey for every family, as their child cultivates their social and emotional wellbeing, and their physical and language development. When combined, these strengthen each child’s academic growth as they move into formal education.

OUR APPROACH

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum

In an EYFS classroom, a teacher leads children of similar ages in a series of activities with conversation, active engagement and intentional teaching to make learning fun and relevant. They employ integrated teaching and learning, which comprise child and adult-led learning with guided play in different contexts and environments. Through play and other opportunities, we encourage children to make sense of their world.

Montessori Curriculum

Following the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum, the Montessori teaching method is offered at two of our campuses: the Woodland Montessori Academy on Caine Road and Woodland Montessori Pre-School at Repulse Bay. At a Montessori pre-school, classes are vertically streamed, with children aged between 2 years 8 months, and 6 years. Children learn from each other and are given support for independent self-directed activity— Montessori classrooms provide a range of materials that are organised and made available for free and independent use, while teachers maintain the class structure and direct every child towards their best learning opportunities.

LANGUAGE PROGRAMME

As language is easier to pick up at an earlier age, parents are constantly looking for ways to help their children easily master Mandarin/Putonghua. To cater for different developmental needs, Woodland Pre-Schools offer three levels of intensity, in both EYFS and Montessori teaching methods.

Not only is the Montessori Programme excellent in its discovery approach, I continue to marvel at how the teachers differentiate the learning for each and every student in the class every day. Every Friday parents are furnished with an online account of the progress of individual child. The photographs show a richness and breadth of experiences. There is a clearly mapped out curriculum each month, so we as parents can feed into the topics/areas of learning at home. I also love how the school marks many cultural events celebrated around the world, making it a global learning environment. I can’t ask more from a school. I am truly happy my child has made her start here.
