The Suns group is currently the oldest age group at The English Nursery. As from August 2018, The Tanto International School will be opening a Year 1 class to join the school instead of Suns in the Nursery. This class will follow the goals and curriculum set out in the English National Curriculum 2014 as all the other class do.
The children who will be eligible for this Year 1 class (from August 2018) are those born in 2012. This new structure will mean that children who are turning 6 years old in a calendar year will be placed in the Year 1 class. Those who are turning 7 years old in the calendar year will be placed in Year 2. And ,of course, those turning 5 years old during a calendar year will be placed in the nursery.
This website page will be updated during Spring 2018 to reflect the new school and nursery structure.
Currently, we have children in the group from 5 yrs to 6 yrs (equivalent age to UK Year 1). As with all of our Nursery groups, we have excellent teacher-child ratios. The group sizes throughout The English Nursery are very small as we believe that keeping a personal approach to a child's education is extremely important to the child and to the parents. This is something we are very proud of and believe allows our children to feel safe, valued and excited.
All of our children take part in social learning activities: learning through songs, dance, music, story time and exploration with our outside learning days. The children at this stage in their experiences are beginning to enjoy much more challenge and exploration. The ideas and interesting questions are starting to guide us through the curriculum at an fun pace. We explore letter sounds and encourage a love of stories and books. Parents are welcome to borrow some of our excellent picture and first word story time books to share with their children each week. The day is busy and full of friendship and excitement. The children in Suns have lunch and play times a couple of times a day where lots of social development unfolds. After this, the learning journey continues until snack time at 15:00 and then home time any time their parents wish to collect them.

We first opened our doors at ** The English Nursery** in 2009; we are supported by the Tanto International School which was founded in 1983. Our nursery school has an English profile. The English Nursery accepts children from 1-6 years old. We have 30 places available which allows us to create a positive 'family' feel for all our children and parents. The Nursery is organized into 3 small groups in order to give our children a greater sense of security. We take pride in our great relationships with children and parents. The English Nursery has a staff to pupil ratio of 1:6 which enables us to offer the best care for all our children. When children finish the nursery, many children make the smooth transition to The Tanto International School, which caters for children aged 6-12 (Year 2-7). Our aim is to offer an education which allows our children to develop individually whilst creating an environment that encourages independence and a love for learning. We follow the Lpfö 98-2010 curriculum goals which encourage independence and creativity as well as developing social skills, knowledge of the world around us, language and number skills. All our staff take pride in sharing and celebrating the learning journey with our children and parents through superb displays, photo shows, portfolios and regular opportunities to speak with our caring staff. We offer a variety of daily activities which are fun and rewarding for the children. Each day will also include a good balance of indoor and outdoor activities. We carefully balance "structured" and "free" play, and although the groups are situated in separate areas, they spend parts of their days together, as strong friendships and bonds of affection exist between them. Our aim is to strengthen our children and encourage independence in every aspect of their day. Both our staff and children come from many different countries and cultures. Our different backgrounds provide a basis for understanding each child’s similarities and differences, and their own personalities. We encourage and enhance compassion, solidarity and empathy with others, but also ensure that each child enjoys a sense of well-being and security. We aim to lay a foundation for lifelong learning for our children, and their willingness and desire to learn should be stimulated as their interests grow. A caring, nurturing and learning environment has been created, and we want all our children to experience how it feels to make progress, overcome difficulties and feel part of a working family. We encourage them to develop trust and confidence in other children and to foster curiosity, initiative and varied interests.
