GEMS World Academy Chicago – Early Years
Every step in education is important, but it has been scientifically proven that the preschool years are the most important as they lay the foundation for future learning and success. It is for this reason that our experts in early years education developed the successful GEMS World Academy Chicago – Early Years model in the UK and why we are expanding the program globally-including our first U.S. school, GEMS World Academy Chicago – Early Years.
The GEMS World Academy Chicago – Early Years design is firmly based on scientific research into child development and early years education. Research indicates that children who experience high-quality early education can make significantly greater progress in school than children without that experience.
The GEMS World Academy Chicago – Early Years method blends the English Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum–used by successful preschools in the UK–with the unique, specially written GEMS World Academy Chicago – Early Years curriculum. The result is a program that enhances learning and enables children to flourish academically, personally, socially and emotionally.
Our GEMS World Academy – Chicago Early Years team consists of educators who are highly trained, skilled and passionate about early years education. They know how important it is to work in partnership with parents and for young children to have secure attachments with people who care about them and want the best for them.
As part of our global family, GEMS World Academy Chicago – Early Years children receive special consideration for placement in GEMS’ award-winning schools. (More information on GEMS Education schools is available on this website.)
