PRESENTED BY STAMFORD AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL, AS SEEN IN HARPER’S BAZAAR JUNIOR NOVEMBER 2017
They say the best years of your life are your school years—and the most valuable are the first five. Each day is a chance to master a new skill for the first time, whether it’s intellectual, physical or emotional. That’s why Stamford American International School has launched a world-first programme: An Early Learning Village for children aged from 18 months to six years old.
Unlike schools that are designed for a mixture of age groups, everything within this school has been purpose-built for this demographic, from tiny doors so they can navigate their own movement, to lowered windows so they can enjoy their own view of the world. And since Stamford American has created a bespoke space, they are able to fully embrace the world-famous Reggio Emilia philosophy of accessing the outdoors for learning. Believing that the environment is the third teacher for your child, the school has added an adjoined discovery space to each of the interactive classrooms.

Stamford American’s famed SMART Steps physical education classes, Suzuki Violin and Cello Program and Daily Mandarin or Spanish classes, as well as numerous enrichment classes—including gymnastics, ballet, drama and language—have also been specially catered for at this new campus. On top of the innovative classroom spaces, there’s also the swimming pool with shorter lanes for young swimmers; mini scientific experiments for children to play with in Discovery Cove; and a pirate ship where they can let their imaginations run wild. If you want to give your child a kick-start in life, this is when, and where, to do it. Every child happy, every child learning.
