A Brighter Future within Reach
The REACH Philosophy
The LACAS Early Years Programme (REACH) is an amalgamation of the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage), Cambridge Primary and Reggio Emilia. The REACH curriculum is founded on an inquiry-based approach that encourages children to think and question in order to reach their full intellectual potential. It develops a strong sense of identity through knowledge of our own cultural heritage, values and society along with an understanding of the world, enabling our students to become well-rounded global citizens.
The REACH Curriculum
It is our belief that childhood is a time for fun, warmth, security, exploration and discovery. This belief is reflected throughout the LACAS Early Years Programme.
The REACH curriculum provides opportunities for children to take responsibility, make decisions, learn through play, develop self-worth and nurture creativity. This hands-on, interactive, technology-integrated learning programme provides a comprehensive approach to building cognitive, social, emotional, physical and language skills in our children. The REACH framework for Playgroup, Pre-Reception and Reception develops skills in the domains of communications, language and literacy, mathematics, knowledge & understanding of the world, music and movement, visual arts, dramatic play and physical education.
The different elements of the REACH curriculum are tied together through a theme-based approach. Each REACH classroom enhances students’ learning through well-equipped learning centers which offer a rich variety of spaces, materials and activities especially organized to promote active exploration and mastery.
The three year REACH Programme aims at providing high quality, developmentally appropriate education. It strives to develop independent thinkers and lifelong learners equipped with the skill set crucial to their success in the coming years.
