Primary Years Programme

The PYP aims to create a curriculum that focuses on issues that cross across different subject areas and helps the child to develop as an enquirer (questioner) both in the classroom and outside. They develop skills that help them share their ideas independently and think logically in any given situation.The curriculum also emphasises on the social and emotional wellbeing of the child along with academicsand prepares the young learners for successful life, now and in the future.
