TEACHING & LEARNING
Global Village pre-school uses the UK Early Years Curriculum.
In the main school, we follow the Canadian curriculum.
These curriculum are used to help the teachers plan their lessons, as well as a basis for assessing what the children have attained and the progress they are making.
Teachers use the information they have gathered and present it to parents in the form of termly reports on their child's progress.
Children also receive Thai and Chinese lessons, and fun optional after-school clubs are on offer.
The preschool curriculum has three broad prime areas of learning, which feed into four more specific areas. Effective learning in all of these areas is achieved through playing and exploring, active learning, and creating and thinking critically.
Prime Areas of Learning
Specific Areas of Learning
There are seven areas of the main school curriculum. They cover a wide range of learning, enabling the children to develop into global citizens.
Although these areas are separate, their learning constantly takes threads from each of these, allowing a broad cross-curricular approach.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
In this school it's all about the children! The school community, including teachers, volunteers and the kids, are open and warm. They made our son, who has special needs, feel welcome and inspired from day one. He learned a lot and gained heaps of self-confidence from this experience. Thank you Teacher Sue, Gerry, and everyone at GVS!
This school is truly one of a kind, I wish I could have attended GVS as a kid! The staff are an enthusiastic and eclectic group, making for a unique learning environment. Gerry the principal is a patient, passionate, driven, and fearless leader.
Global Village School is a fantastic school. My daughter loves going there. Already, after just a few months of attending GVS, she has developed tremendously both academically and socially. The teachers and all the staff are fantastic and I am very grateful to them all for their hard work and great teaching. Thank you!
