❝Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.❞
Albert Einstein

The Primary Years Program is concept-driven and has inquiry based learning at the heart. Inquiry is essentially exploring, wondering, questioning, experimenting, researching and elaborating on solutions to problems. It involves the synthesis, analysis and manipulation of knowledge. Classroom teaching and learning practices stimulate curiosity and inquiry in order to foster a spirit of learning.

PYP EARLY YEARS

❝Play is the Highest Form of Research❞
Albert Einstein

We believe that the early years are extremely important for a child’s development and they learn best when they can inquire into areas of their interest through meaningful interactions with adults and peers. They provide foundation for their future health, academic success, social and emotional well-being. students are engaged in inquiry-based learning experiences that involve them in the learning process.

  • Our Environment enhances the learning process, our learning Spaces are designed to encourage encounters, communication and relationships.
  • Educators are nurturers and guides. They facilitate children’s exploration of themes – short – or long-term projects and guide experiences of open-ended discovery and problem-solving.
  • Through play and exploration, students learn to inquire as they build and test theories to help make sense of the world around them.
  • Parents are our partners A mutually supportive relationship between school and family is critical.
  • Every child is Unique so we understand the value of observation and documentation of their work. It is through the observation and documentation that the teachers are able to gain insight into the thoughts of the children, determine further investigation for working on topics, create a history of the work and generate further interest.

❝Curiosity in children is but an appetite for knowledge.❞
John Locke

The Primary Years Programme is a rigorous, international curriculum for students in the age group of 3 – 11 years and is offered by the International Baccalaureate

It focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. We challenge students to excel in their learning and personal growth. We aim to inspire in them their quest for learning throughout life.

Inquiry Based

We believe children learn best through structured, purposeful inquiry. This pedagogical approach is focused on student inquiry and the principles of constructivism, encouraging learners to construct their own meaning and take the responsibility of their learning process.

Students are encouraged to ask questions, investigate and find ways to answer these questions, and to sustain this enjoyment of learning throughout life.

Concept- Driven

Students spend their time at school exploring and learning about important concepts that have relevance in their own lives, and that they can transfer to other contexts. Their learning to be transferrable to new situations – not locked in time and place

Our aim is to develop students’ understanding of big ideas, not just their knowledge or skills.

Differentiated

“We strongly believe One size doesn’t fit all”

  • The learner is at the heart of our curriculum framework.
  • Differentiation allows us to continually challenge each child at his or her own pace.
  • Children come to school with a range of experiences, backgrounds and prior knowledge.
  • We aim to design learning engagements to suit children at all different levels of competence or experience, providing support for those who need it, and extensions for those who need more challenge.

Collaborative

Learning is a social endeavor, and there is great emphasis on sharing, group work and collaboration at our school thus fostering social and cognitive development and to lay the foundation for learning in multiple academic areas.

Different learning sections thoughtfully encourage children to explore practical life activities, sensorial experiences, math, language, culture and science. They learn to communicate well, to encourage each other, and to develop an open mind so they can learn from each other thus Developing social skills through collaborative play.
