Our Early Years Programme provides your child with the necessary skills to ensure they are prepared to embark on their journey towards lifelong learning.
At Panyaden International School, we offer children the opportunity to engage in play-based learning in a natural setting. Our learning approach is centred around an indoor-outdoor, free-flow combination of adult-led and child-initiated activities. Our Early Years Program is supported by highly skilled and dedicated English and Thai teachers and teaching assistants who look forward to welcoming and educating your child.
Here at Panyaden, we use the British Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) as our core curriculum. This learning through play approach focuses on seven areas of the curriculum, supplemented by the Thai national curriculum.
