CURRICULUM

We use the International Early Year Curriculum (IEYC) and the UK-standards International Primary Curriculum (IPC) with a values-based approach to academic, physical, emotional, and social development.

THE IEYC

The International Early Years Curriculum launched in 2016 for children aged 2–5 years old. It is used by over 140 nurseries and early year settings, in 47 countries worldwide.

The IEYC uses international best practices, holistic inquiry and play-based approaches that cover all curriculum areas including personal, social and emotional development.

WHY CHOOSE THE IPC?

The IPC uses an inquiry based approach to learning which provides “real-life” as well as role playing situations for students to gain practical and experiential knowledge intertwined  with research and skills development. We see each student as a unique individual with specific needs, goals, and dreams for the future. Students and teachers work in partnership to explore learning through a theme based approach. The IPC focuses on Knowledge (what we already know), Skills (concerned with abilities [I am able to]) and Understandings which are developed as we acquire new knowledge and skills. students.

The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is used more than 1,800 schools in more than 90 countries around the world and it has been developed to focus on four major goals. They are:

subject-goal

SUBJECT GOALS

To help children learn the subject knowledge, skills and understanding they need to become aware of the world around them (adaptability, thoughtfulness)
personal-goal

PERSONAL GOALS

To help children develop the personal skills they need to take an active part in the world throughout their lives (resilient, self-motivated learners)
inter-goal

INTERNATIONAL LEARNING GOALS

To help children develop an international mindset alongside their awareness of their own nationality (global, moral, ethical, citizens)
cycle
To do each of these in ways which take into account up-to-date research on how children learn as well as how to encourage them to become life-long learners (enquiry, respect).
