Methods of teaching
The kindergarten runs programmes for children up to the age of six. The Early Years programme is implemented first, next -Jolly Phonics, and finally – Polish pre-school programme and Key Stage 1.
The Early Years programme is aimed at children up to the age of 5 and follows the English Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS): the National Curriculum in England.
The main areas of children’s development at this stage are:
- an introducing them to learning to read and write through repeated storytelling,
- role playing,
- sequencing and fine motility skills exercises,
- simple mathematical tasks,
Children’s progress is regularly reviewed and at the end of the last year of kindergarten children are assessed against the EYFS The Early Learning Objectives.
From the age of 4, we introduce the English reading and writing programme – Jolly Phonics. 6-year-old children follow the Polish pre-school programme and the Key Stage 1, Year 1 programme. Children from the age of 2,5 to 6 can be enrolled in to Kensington International Kindergarten.

We are probably the only institution in Warsaw that cooperates with a network of professional British kindergartens and nurseries every day and is based on their knowledge and experience (constant on-line contact of children from London and Warsaw, common application for managing the institution -Famly, common values and assumptions, English curricula, building and design straight from the capital of England and others).
