school english for native english speaking kids

Fox in the pine offers English classes to English native speaking children who want to maintain their English. The courses are for children aged 1 to 12.  Our courses follow the American curriculum guidelines  in conjunction with the Australian teaching philosophy and all our teachers are highly qualified and experienced. 

 

Our educational programs for already English speaking children aim to assure that their English knowledge and levels continue to develop equally to their foreign counterparts. In order to achieve this goal children's vocabulary through STEM  and  their spoken and written language skills are reinforced. 

 

The Method 

Although the school follows the American curriculum, lessons are not text book based but teacher derived.  Activities and worksheets are individually planned and created by teachers in order to ensure each child's learning needs are met and catered for. Each child has an individual learning plan which guarantees development and success throughout the year. Most of the work is completed during class time in order to prevent overloading children, therefore minimal home work is given.

 

The programs

The school offers nursery ( children aged 2-5) and from the 2018-2019 educational year Kindergarten classes as well. The language used in  both nursery and Kindergarten classes  are English and Greek equally.  

In our afternoon clubs, which are open also for students that do not attend our nursery/ Kindergarten, but english is their native language, we offer a wide range of activities depending on their age. These include:

  •  Language class

  • STEM class

  • Theater

  • Art class

  • Messy Play

  • Music class

  • Sports class

  • PMP (Perceptual Motor Program)

  • Gardening

 

* * PMP assists the development of children's gross and fine motor skills. It aids concentration and reasoning and gives a sound basis for future formal learning. PMP enhances brain development by stimulating the five senses through movement.

Nursery / Kindergarten 

 

The nursery is for children aged 2 up to the age of 5.5. Children do not have to be potty trained. The school operates Mo-Fr from 7:30 to 16:00 . The educational program starts at 9 and ends at 1:30. After that time our students may participate in the Afternoon Clubs or rest. School bus service is available. 

 

Nature Oriented

We strongly believe that  nature nourishes the mind and the soul. The school is located on a 3 acre block full of pine trees and outdoor activities, where students have the opportunity to participate both in individual and team activities. Each student has a small individual garden where he/she is responsible for its entire growth and maintenance under teacher supervision.

 

Summer Camp 

An English only summer gardening camp will operate from the 1st  - 31st of July 2017. Children will adopt an individual garden area in which they will grow their owns vegetables! Messy play is in the program as well. The aim is to have fun and improve our English.
