Early Years Foundation Stage 2024/25

We know that the best early education is vital to your child’s life chances, so we help young students to learn independently and to connect what they absorb here with life outside of school.
Fostering this enthusiasm early will establish a strong foundation for your child’s future education.


At Nobel Algarve we provide a nurturing, active, and personalised learning experience for children aged three to four (Almancil Campus) or five (Lagoa Campus).

  • Each classroom is managed by a highly trained teacher and a full-time teaching assistant; both are fluent in English and Portuguese.
  • We take a project-based learning approach, ensuring learning is happy, experimental, fun, and exciting while promoting literacy, Mathematics, and expressive arts.
  • Children are encouraged and guided to learn through inquiry and the proven power of play.
  • A wide variety of activities and experiences help build confidence and expand children’s social development, speech, language, and fine and gross motor skills.
  • Pre-school students enjoy weekly Forest School lessons as part of our Outdoor Learning Programme, complementing what they learn in class.

With close personal care and attention, our students become independent, enthusiastic learners. We enable them to make connections between life in school, home, and the world, establishing a strong foundation for future learning.
