The Early Years section of Overcomers Schools International is a specially-prepared environment, laying a solid foundation for children aged 18 months to 5+. Our teaching staff are experienced early years educators. We offer the British Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum with excellent links with the Nigerian Curriculum using some Montessori principles and resources.We believe in four important principles underpinning effective practice in the care, development and learning of young children. The four principles are:
A Unique Child: Every child is a competent learner from birth who can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured. At Overcomers Schools International we recognize that every child is unique, every child is and individual and every child can learn. All children at Overcomers Schools International are treated fairly regardless of race, religion or abilities. All children and their families are valued within our School.
Enabling Environments: The environment plays a key role in supporting and extending children’s development and learning. The Early Years Foundation Stage area is organised to allow children to explore and learn within a secure and safe environment. There are places where the children can be active, be quiet and rest.
Positive Relationships: Children learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships with parents and/or a key person. At Overcomers Schools International our educators create positive relationships with the pupils.
Learning and Development: Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates and all areas of Learning and Development are equally important and inter-connected. At Overcomers Schools International we value all areas of learning and development equally and understand that they are inter-connected.
