Stages of Education – Confused!
Please Help. The Stages of education are markedly differently, probably based on different curriculums. Nursery/Pre-school>Kg1/Kg2>Fs1>Fs2 etc.
Please help me to understand what comes first and at what age and refers to which curriculum?
Yes it is confusing – but here is a rough guide:
Nursery/Pre-School – usually up to the age of approx 4 except in the UK curriculum where children start school at the age of 3. Almost all International curricula start with either pre-KG, KG or KG1 and KG2 and then go from grade 1 to grade 12. UK curriculum classes start with FS1, followed by FS2 and then years 1- 13.
pre-KG (international curricula) = FS1 (UK curriculum – age 3+ on 1st September)
KG1 (international curricula) = FS2 (age 3 years and 9 months on 1st September – except in UK curriculum schools where children will already have reached the age of 4)
KG2 = Year 1
Grade 1 = Year 2 etc until Grade 12 = Year 13 in the UK curriculum.
Hope this helps.
