Early childhood education in the PYP

The primary school is where your child’s future starts. Through a learning environment that establishes collaboration, kindness, curiosity and independence, your child builds an exemplary foundation for their education.

Through the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) curriculum, each child can develop as a whole – socially, intellectually, emotionally and physically – while following an inquiry-based approach to learning.

Teachers provoke student inquiry, lead through example and set expectations before students independently or collaboratively move towards predefined learning goals.

Our team of experienced teachers provides a programme of study based on your child’s interests and curiosity.

This makes learning meaningful and inspires children to take action on what they have learned.

In our Early Years classrooms and outdoor learning areas, students actively learn through a play-based approach that sees them experiencing hands-on exploration and discovery.

We help children to find and use their voice to express their ideas, share their opinions and thoughtfully and respectfully comment on those of others. Every teacher promotes and celebrates the successes of each child.
