    We are explorers!

    Early Childhood Programme

    Our Early Childhood Programme is specially tailored to meet the demands and abilities of young children from 3 to 5 years old. All teachers at "YES" schools are highly qualified in ELT and experienced in the field of early childhood education. Moreover, they use innovative methods and means to assist students in introducing them to the English language and culture. Our goal at this level is to familiarize students with the English language, help them gain a positive first impression of it but most importantly cultivate a love of language in a suitably designed and safe environment where they can participate in fun, age-appropriate activities. This way, children embark on their English language journey where they learn to work as members of a team, develop their social and creative skills, stretch their imagination and acquire basic skills, boost their confidence through books, stories, games, songs, drama, videos, crafts, music and theme vocabulary.

    Pre - Junior

    Our pre-junior classes for children aged 5 -7 offer students an early introduction to the English language by implementing a special teaching programme which is designed exclusively for preschool children and is based on play and creative activities. Our aim at this level is to offer our students a stepping stone so that they can develop different skills, enrich their vocabulary in a fun and enjoyable way and gain knowledge which will be useful as they take the big step into the next, primary level.

    A' & Β' Juniors - Primary Level

    Our A' and B' Junior classes respond to the needs of children aged 7-9. At this level, children have their first encounter with the English language and culture. Using books by leading publishing houses along with our own, carefully-selected material, we engage children in activities relating to their age and interests (songs, stories, drama, fiction, audiovisual material, games etc.). As a result, students are able to understand spoken and written language and gradually become more confident to use English when speaking and writing.

Bus Service


In order to assist parents with transporting their children to and from our school in Pylaia, we provide our own daily bus service which picks up and drops off students at designated spots in the vicinity of their homes. This service is only available to the families of our students at "YES" school in Pylaia and is offered to them free of charge.

Film Nights


We regularly organize film nights which give students the chance to watch films they enjoy in English. This way, they enhance their listening skills, strengthen their relationship with one another and -most importantly- have fun.This service is offered to our students free of charge.

Trips


We organize trips to art galleries, the theatre or other places. We introduce children to the arts with the help of English language. Every summer we arrange trips to the U.K. where our students have the chance to attend lessons in an English college for 2 weeks, visit museums etc. and improve their language skills but also broaden their horizons.

Drama Club & Literature


In our schools children get the opportunity to explore the world through the lens of the theater! By joining our drama club our students collaborate with their teachers to create a play in English which they present at the end of the school year.The availability of our drama club service depends on student participation and is offered to our students free of charge.
