Overview of the REAL International Early Years Education

We believe that every child is an individual with a unique story to tell. That is why our Early Years education is carefully designed to help young learners develop their social, emotional and personal skills through a thematic approach that incorporates literacy, numeracy, S.T.E.A.M and Personal, Social, Health & Emotional Development. 

We aim to support young learners' learning and development by laying the foundation through innovative learning for them to reach their full potential by optimising their hard and soft skills as they grow. Our Early Years education will also introduce your child to Montessori/Character Education, as well as Creative and Aesthetic Expression, allowing them to explore their non-academic potential. This encourages them to learn through experiential learning so their academic excellence is founded on a "Growth Mindset".

We acknowledge that assisting a child as they transition between different stages of their school life is a vital part of their overall well-being. Our Early Years journey begins at the age of four and until the age of six. By the age of five and six, a more structured and bridged programme will be introduced under Early Years 2 and Early Years 2a. This will guide your child through the transition to Year 1 or Primary 1 at REAL Schools, ensuring they achieve the best possible learning outcomes from the Early Years.
