Students in the Kindergarten Course will be able to directly join the regular lessons of BUDDY GSA International School and experience a real international school curriculum.

The BGIS curriculum is rooted in the UK-based International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC). The IEYC uses international best practices, holistic inquiry, and play-based approaches that cover all curriculum areas including personal, social, and emotional development. Our child-centered approach encourages learning through discovery and exploration, focusing on fun, hands-on learning that is relevant to the children and nurturing their natural curiosity about the world they live in.

As well as building solid foundations in literacy and numeracy, children attending BGIS also participate in a range of special subject classes such as art, dance, physical education, and music, all taught in English and part of our regular program. This is because we believe in the importance for children to have a wide variety of experiences in this key stage of their development, engaging them from different angles and encouraging them to grow both as individuals and as members of a group.

Our Language Arts program is based on Jolly Phonics and Grammar. Jolly Phonics is a comprehensive program, based on the proven, fun, and multi-sensory synthetic phonics method that gets children reading and writing from an early age. Students practice phonics, pronunciation, reading, writing, and listening by learning songs, actions and stories.
