Children in Kindergarten 1 and 2 (K1 and K2) are aged four to six years old and these two grade levels are known as Early Years. Early Years learning at ISS International School follows the IB PYP curriculum framework which incorporates current research and best practices in early childhood education. Children participate in an inquiry-based programme that responds to their academic and developmental needs.
Our Image of the Child
We believe that children are naturally curious and full of wonder, with an innate ability to question and pursue their own learning and research. Our inquiry-based learning environment encourages children to develop these capacities and participate actively in exploring and problem-solving. Our teachers view children as competent partners in the learning experience and understand that each child has a unique pattern of growth and development. We encourage students to develop independence by taking initiative with their own self-care and organisation.
