Haileybury Astana’s Kindergarten gives the best start to your child’s education.

Here at Haileybury Astana we use the internationally recognised Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. This curriculum is designed to support whole child development. It combines elements of both Montessori and Steiner educational theories and covers social and physical development as well as academic subjects, and creative arts. Critical thinking skills run through all areas and sit at the heart of this incredible curriculum.

Our highly qualified and experienced teachers deliver the curriculum in English and we have a high ratio of staff to students. Our local teaching staff speak English, Kazakh and Russian so all children have full access to learning.

Our facilities are purposefully designed and resourced to cater for young children and provide a stimulating and inspiring environment in which children feel safe and comfortable.

Each topic is carefully chosen and planned to capture children’s imaginations and encourage their active participation in every aspect of academic study.

We chose to use the EYFS because it gives all children a solid foundation on which to build to lifelong learning. 
We know that you will agree.

Into the future
Haileybury Astana and the Haileybury group are investing in a new Kindergarten. Set to open in the new school year 2019 -2020 the new environment takes the very latest in educational theory and school design and adapts it to the unique needs of a pre-school in the north of Kazakhstan.

My name is Gemma Mebrahtu. I am an Early Years Teacher currently working in Reception at Haileybury Astana. I am also the Early Years Co-ordinator. I graduated from The University Of York in the UK in 1997 with a BSc Biology and in 2000 with a PGCE. This will be my 18th year of teaching and first in Astana, Kazakhstan. Previously, I worked for 2 years as a Nursery Teacher in Yangon, Myanmar and before that worked in the UK public sector. I worked briefly as a Phase Leader, as a Reception Teacher for 5 years and also in Key Stage 1 and 2 in Primary Schools. I have also worked in Secondary Schools in the UK and as a volunteer teacher trainer in Eritrea, Africa. Although I have a wide range of experiences, my passion and expertise is in Early Years.
