The IEYC is an innovative research-based program, recognising global best-practice and the developmental needs of 2.6-5 year olds. It supports key areas of learning through holistic inquiry and play-based approaches encompassing all curriculum areas including personal, social and emotional development.
International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC) is taught in EC-Reception. All students participate in the child centred thematic units on a variety of topics.
The curriculum contains themed Units of Learning. These are sequenced through the IEYC Process of Learning. This captures children’s natural curiosity as a starting point and, within an enabling environment, balances child-initiated and teacher-scaffolded provision.
Each child will have their own unique learning journey through the IEYC. How children learn and develop will depend on the IEYC Units of Learning that are implemented, and learning that is driven through the children’s own interests
