Hello, My name is Hannah Brown. I joined HeadStart in August 2019 as the Deputy Head of Foundation school. I have lived in Phuket for 18 months having previously worked as both a teacher and a member of the management at another school. On leaving secondary school I was very aware of the career path I should take. Whilst studying I worked in various early years provisions as an early childhood educator before completing my degree education at the University of Plymouth, UK. I was part of the management team for a large group of early years provisions in England. Throughout my early career I focused my research and professional development around speech and language development and children learning English as a second language, which put me at a great advantage when it came to moving to this beautiful island. I am very excited to lead a team of dedicated and creative EYFS teachers in order to give your children the best possible education experience in their early childhood. I believe that for children to achieve, discover their talents and become resilient young people they must feel safe and secure both in their personal and home lives. As teachers and education providers our role stretches further than what subjects we can teach them but rather educate and support the development of the ‘whole child’. Taking a holistic approach we are able to focus on the personal, social and emotional needs of children whilst supporting their cognitive and physical ability. Children spend much of their childhood studying and preparing for exams, it is my mission to ensure that every child we enrole at HeadStart looks back on their early years with fun and happy memories, knowing that they were given the opportunity to grow and explore in an interesting and diverse environment. When I’m not at school I like to explore the beautiful places Thailand has to offer, spend time with friends, swim in the ocean and eat lots of delicious food! I look forward to meeting new children and parents this year. Good luck to all for the academic year!

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework booklet.

This framework booklet aims to provide an overview of the content delivered throughout your child’s time here at HeadStart Foundation School.

The EYFS framework is the statutory framework in the UK and has been carefully adapted to suit the needs of our international community of children.

Learning does not begin and end at school. The EYFS framework can continue at home and in the wider environment. Encourage your children to play, explore and ask questions about the world around them. Ask them questions, encourage them to solve problems and to be independent in their learning, whilst showing an interest in their inquisitive minds.

“The mind grows by self revelation. In play the child ascertains what he can do, discovers his possibilities of will and thought by exerting his power spontaneously. In work he follows a task prescribed for him by another, and doesn’t reveal his own proclivities and inclinations; but another’s. In play he reveals his own original power.” — Friedrich Froebel
