Welcome to Early Years
The Early Years Programme provides a nurturing environment for children aged two to six. With inspiration from the Reggio Emilia approach and guidance from the IB PYP framework, our students discover the joy of learning through a balance of play that faster social-emotional, cognitive, physical, and creative development.

Early Years in the PYP is a holistic learning stage that strengthens Student’s Agency preparing them for life-long learners.
In Early Yeas, we are a collaborative family of teachers with extensive IB experience, and we are committed to creating a caring and unique learning environment for our students through play. We have a distinctive dual language programme where we encourage using English with home language support. In Early Years, children generally pick up language required swiftly through story-telling, rhymes, songs and THRASS (English). Students’ agency is highly encouraged and appreciated in our young learners for them to be confident enough in their learning journey. To motivate meaningful interaction and development of the whole child in all areas, we provide an environment for children to develop age-appropriate concepts and skills that are related to the IBPYP Key Concepts and Approaches To Learning Skills.
We have a large outdoor activity area, multi-purpose classrooms, library, dance studio and swimming pool facilities, which provide good conditions for children to study and play. We are now adding more specialist teachers to ensure that students receive the best possible education and balanced development in areas such as reading, sports, visual and performing arts. Our goal is to develop knowledgeable, caring, and creative lifelong learners. On behalf of our kindergarten, we welcome you to join our learning community and become a member of our big family!
Through the IB Primary Year Programme’s (PYP) inquiry-based approach and inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach we endeavour to foster children's learning through the development of all their "languages" and by creating an environment to support this way of thinking and being.
