Students are fortunate to learn in a multilingual and multicultural environment that provides a wide range of opportunities academically, culturally, socially and physically. The IB acknowledges that young learners are intelligent, capable and creative individuals who develop and learn at different rates. They explore their environment and learn about their world through play and relationships with family, teachers and community members. Learning is hands-on and students are therefore given the freedom (in a prepared environment guided by the teacher), to enquire into and learn about the world around them. This encourages social interaction and team work. Each learning style and attainment level is taken into account by teachers, as every student learns differently. Children participate in free flow activities that allow them to progress at their own pace, develop independence and have the freedom to move between indoor and outdoor areas. Children take part in specialist classes such as Music, Physical Education and Arts. Early Years learning instils a desire for life-long learning. Our aim is that children learn real life skills to enable them to succeed in today’s ever changing environment. We encourage children to be independent thinkers, develop excellent communication skills and become principled, open-minded individuals.
