"We believe the most effective type of education is when your child simply enjoys learning"

Our Early Years Foundation Stage comprises Early Years and Reception. Students follow the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) integrated with the learning targets of the National Curriculum of England. It is designed to provide a stimulating, creative and integrated learning approach with specific guidance on personal, social and emotional development. At Austin Heights Schools, we promote the learning approach through activity and play. To complement the International Primary Curriculum, we also offer a comprehensive phonics course of Jolly Phonic.

There are seven key areas of learning:

  1. Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  2. Creative Development
  3. Physical Development
  4. Communication Development
  5. Language & Literacy Development
  6. Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy
  7. Exploration - Knowledge and Understanding of the world

Our curriculum cultivates children with learning habits which are essential for their next stage of education. A high priority is to focus on the process of learning through practical, first-hand experience. Children develop early reading, writing and numerical skills through a creative and an imaginative way in a fun and challenging environment.

To achieve a well-rounded academic framework, individual academic subjects are taught to complement the International Primary Curriculum (IPC).

  • English Language
  • Mandarin
  • Bahasa Melayu
  • Mathematics
  • Physical Education & Health Science
  • Science
It is important for our students to feel happy, confident, secure and cared for in a conducive and well-resourced environment. This will motivate them to learn and attain a sense of personal achievement and to be independent. While this programme allows for learning through play, it provides a holistic experience and also prepares children with the knowledge and skills, at the same time promoting enthusiasm for learning in Key Stage 1 and 2.
