ENS Nursery School education and development of children under 5 years is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage of the British National Curriculum. This is the educational programme that all children learn in British nursery schools. In the UK, unlike in Russia, children go to Year 1 at the age of 5 years old and from that time start to follow Key Stage 1 of the British National Curriculum.

Aims of the Early Years Foundation Stage
English language within this programme is both the object of study and the main instrument of learning and communication. Children are totally ‘immersed' in an English-speaking environment which is carefully crafted and created by the qualified British teachers around them. The priority of the Early Years Foundation Stage programme is a holistic approach to the care and education of children, and to their all-round emotional and physical development, taking into account their relationship with the world and people around them.
To achieve these aims, we have:
Professionalsworking in constant collaboration with our parents and teachers. Our experts advise parents and determine the important points and difficulties in the development of the child before they join ENS.
A carefully balanced schedulewhich psychologically motivates children to perform to the best of their creative abilities.

The British National Curriculum (from 5 years old) includes the following: From 5 to 7 years

ENS pupils aged from 5 to 7 years old (the older nursery groups) become, by UK standards, ready to enter immediately into a UK primary school or, as the parent decides, a local Russian school. This affords children the possibility of academic success in either of the two educational programmes (British and Russian) simply by studying at ENS. At this age children are taught British maths, literacy, science and geography, but still mainly in the form of games for their age-group.

From 7 to 11 years

A 7 year-old child entering the first class of ENS primary school (equivalent to Year 3 in the British system) will continue to learn the British programme (British National Curriculum) but also begin to learn the Russian programme of primary education. Thus, they will develop two parallel programmes and two languages. Our British programme is taught daily until 15.30 and then, after 15.30 and on Saturdays, our Russian programme. For those children who plan to enroll in English international schools and only learn the British system we have a system on tutoring that takes place from 15.30 onwards each day.

English Nursery and Primary School is a bilingual school in the classic sense of the word. It gives its pupils the opportunity to fully master two languages (English and Russian) and two school programmes (British and Russian). Our graduates will be able to freely and easily enter the selected educational institutions of their choice following their ENS education - either an international or Russian school. Their basic school training and language skills (oral and written) will enable them to confidently continue in their studies for years ahead.

The principle of ’two languages - two full programmes - two strong teams of teachers’ makes ENS the only primary school of its kind in Russia.

The programme aims to develop in children the following qualities:
Personal, social, and emotional well-being
the ability to work as part of a team, the skills to create a friendly environment around them and the opportunity for every child to become a respected member of their community. These are the qualities required to help a child form a solid character and develop their self-esteem.
Positive attitude and interest in cognitive activities
an enthusiasm and thirst for knowledge and learning in general, as well as self-confidence.
Social skills
the ability to find ways to cooperate and collaborate with different peers and adults, as well as the ability to listen to and understand each other.
Attention and persistence
the ability and determination to concentrate on games, school or group tasks.
Communication and language skills
all children are given the opportunity for personal contact with peers and adults in a variety of changing situations likely to induce speech such as answering open-ended questions, questioning others, using extended vocabulary and communication skills and develop the ability to listen carefully.
Reading and writing skills
reading children’s books and working with text in different situations - through this process children learn new words and begin to use them in speech.
Elementary level mathematics
where each child learns to develop their understanding of the science of numbers, sizes, patterns, shapes and space and the programme provides a wide range of situations in which children can explore maths in a fun way, use it and talk about it.
Knowledge and understanding of the world around them
children learn to make their own decisions, solve difficult situations, experiment, predict, plan and reflect, as well as explore the world around them to find information about their own environment, people and places that are important in their own lives.
Physical development
children conduct various exercises that develop motor function of hands, and generally strengthen them physically. Our teachers explain to children how their body works and what they need to do to keep it healthy and strong. They instill hygiene practices, organise fun, interesting walks and energetic outdoor games.
Creative development skills
children learn to understand others and their surroundings, sharing with them their thoughts, ideas and feelings through different kinds of creative work - art, design and technology, music, movement, dance and story - role playing, theatre and imaginative games.
