We want children to experience the joy of learning that will stay with them throughout their lives. We aspire to develop our students’ natural curiosity and sense of wonder through our play-based inquiry approach to teaching and learning. By creating carefully curated, intentional learning spaces, our Early Years team caters to the individual needs, interests, and abilities of every student. Our teachers aspire to nurture HAIS learners who are creative, collaborative, caring, confident, responsible and reflective.
As the youngest learners in our community, they have a separate outdoor play area that is designed to be a ‘shoe-free’ zone where children can safely explore and move freely in their natural environment, and play using developmentally stimulating materials. Outdoor play encourages the development of social skills, provides children with an appreciation of the natural world, encourages independence and choice and helps them understand risk in order to build confidence and spatial awareness when moving their bodies freely.
