Early Years

Early Years Programme: Toddler Class and Preschool

Our Early Years educators implement the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) in combination with the Reggio Emilia philosophy.

Our Early Years classes cater for children aged 2 to 5. We encourage our youngest learners to become independent and help them understand how to transfer their skills when they experience different environments. They learn to apply their knowledge in school, at home, and in the outside world. By helping Early Years students to see that learning is connected to everything they do in life, a solid foundation for lifelong learning is established.

Play provides children with opportunities to explore, discover, create, and experiment. 

Early Years lessons are child-centred, engaging and allow students to demonstrate their agency by providing them with exciting opportunities to express their opinions and needs while helping them make sensible choices. This guidance encourages them to take ownership of their learning and enjoy their first introduction to school. Children use their imagination and curiosity to explore, learn and develop through play, experimentation, and inquiry. Our Early Years teachers support this natural inclination with an individualised learning model.

At EIS, children from 2 - 4 years of age thrive in a 'home-from-home' villa environment
