English Nursery Class
Our Devi Ruitersbosch location is directly connected to the International School Breda. In close cooperation we create a unique learning environment for children all ages.
Devi Ruitersbosch Nursery offers English schooling for children between the ages of 2.5/3 and 4 years old. We offer learning in a safe, trusted, homely and natural environment. Our policy is aimed at giving children the space to develop in their own way. Children learn from their experiences, become aware of their bodies and develop new skills. In a safe environment, each child will act within his or her own capabilities. This creates space for the child to be themselves.
Like the International School Breda, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. The Nursery children’s day will include: outside learning, story time and free play. The children have daily phonics lessons, weekly music and PE lessons as well as teacher and child-led activities. The official language in Nursery is English. Devi kIds is a School of Early Learning which serves the international community. There is a strong emphasis on the social and emotional aspects of learning in Nursery.
Children enrolled in Nursery attend at least four morning sessions per week, Monday to Friday.
Morning Early Learning Activities 08:30 - 12:00
Afternoon Early Learning Activities 12:00 - 14:35
Children attending the Nursery Class must be toilet-trained and may join when they are three years old (in the school year in which they will turn four.) It is possible for a child to do a trial during the term they turn three to see if they are ready to start earlier.
If a child starts an academic year in Nursery they will finish that academic year in Nursery. At the end of each academic year the Nursery children moving up to Reception class will participate in a ‘Step Up’ morning. This is an opportunity for the children to meet their new teacher and classmates.
Fees and conditions can be found in our brochure.
