26 May 2020

British Kindergarten of Sofia, part of British School of Sofia, is located in a quiet neighborhood with a magnificent view toward Vitosha Mountain. The modern building with secure facilities offers a cozy and comfortable environment. 

British Kindergarten of Sofia follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum of England which sets standards for the learning, development and care of the child from birth to 5 years old.

Assessment uses the Early Learning Goals and is based on classroom observation and on the recognition that children learn best through play and activity.

Every child feels emotionally supported, unique and important in British School of Sofia. There are 4 kindergarten groups for 2 to 5-year old children.

Daily routines are organized in line with British practice. The school is organized in such way that it ensures smooth learning processes and encouraging the potential of children. The environment is safe and encourages creativity along with an enjoyable learning process.

Groups in British Kindergarten of Sofia and the Elementary School are small to guarantee an individual approach to every child. Classrooms are organized with theme corners where children participate in various activities. Different activities meet the Early Learning Goals and all learning areas are of equal importance.

English is the main language of communication. Jolly Phonics as well as the Letters and Sounds phonics programmes are used to develop pupils’ reading skills.

There is a balance between learning activities and playing. Playing Culture is a core basis for easier communication with peers. The playground is large and gives the kids the opportunity to play in the open air and enjoy their free time.

Teachers and educational staff are dedicated to children’s wellbeing and give their best to ensure a safe environment and to guarantee children’s development. There is a teacher and an assistant teacher in every group and a full-time nurse at the children’s disposal.

We strive to ensure healthy living. At British Kindergarten there are 3 meals a day – fruit breakfast at 10 o’clock, lunch and an afternoon snack.

Our parents are our partners in the educational process. Together with teachers and educational staff they help to stimulate a child’s full potential and to ensure the development of caring, communicative, reflective and inquiring children.

This is British Kindergarten of Sofia. We play while we learn and we learn while we play.
