Preschool Years (ages 3-6)

Early Years Program (Ages 3-6)

 

Our Early Years Program is designed to set the foundation for the infinite success of our students, fostering confident and capable global citizens.

 

Through the promotion of inquiry-based learning, students will harness the talents, knowledge, and skills that they develop in their early education, channeling them into an endless pathway for exploring new concepts and building connections with their authentic world.

 

Our program includes two distinct classes, marking the beginning of the International Baccalaureate (IB) journey for our students.

 

By encouraging students to question the world around them, we aim to instill the 10 IB Learner Profile attributes, ensuring a holistic development approach.
