Natalia Federighi

Our children loved this beautiful school located in the forest – the best environment to learn for a kid! BEPS’ international community was a very enriching experience that allowed us to develop many memorable friendships and organize so many playdates for our kids. We also had opportunities to speak to the teachers and follow up […]

The best part of our experience at BEPS was to know that the school offered more than just a curriculum and that our son was learning in a multicultural environment with values similar to ours.

We believe that children who play outdoors are […]

Early Years Concert

Once a year the children in Early Years shine in their Early Years Concert. Parents love seeing their child smiling, laughing, and having fun. The event is a celebration of the year we have shared with the children. Whilst it gives them the opportunity to develop confidence, they can also share their talents.  

Entry points & Exit points

The Entry Point is an activity for children that begins each Unit of Work and provides an exciting introduction to the work that is to follow. Entry points can last from one hour to a week, depending on the age of the children and the appropriateness of the activity. The Exit Point completes every Unit. […]
