When it comes to nurturing the boundless potential of our children, we understand that the first few steps on their educational journey are the most crucial. The early years are the canvas upon which their future is painted, and at Verita International School, we take this responsibility to heart.

Our Early Years curriculum is not just a program; it’s a carefully crafted masterpiece designed to inspire and ignite a lifelong love for learning. Whether you’re a current parent entrusting us with your child’s education or a prospective parent seeking insight into our approach, join us on a journey that explores the very essence of our educational philosophy.

The White Rose Math

At the heart of our mathematics curriculum is the White Rose Math framework—an international standard that takes a positive approach to teaching mathematics. This approach emphasizes reinforcing numerical competency while weaving reasoning and problem-solving skills into each lesson. Students are encouraged to build their confidence and resilience in math through the Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract (CPA) method. This method allows students to gradually transition from hands-on, concrete experiences to pictorial representations, ultimately reaching the abstract realm of mathematical understanding.


The Heggerty program plays a pivotal role in developing our students’ phonemic awareness—a crucial step in their journey to becoming proficient readers and writers. Heggerty begins by honing children’s ability to recognize sentences, words, and syllables. These are the building blocks of language and literacy, laying a solid foundation upon which they can build their reading and writing skills.

Read Write Ink

Our literacy program is enriched by the Read Write Ink phonics framework, a comprehensive approach that seamlessly integrates reading, writing, and spelling. With a focus on decoding, comprehension, writing, and spelling, this framework equips our students with the essential tools they need to become proficient communicators.

IEYC Units

The International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC) at Verita is designed with a single core purpose: improving children’s learning. This dynamic curriculum explores a wide array of themes, including Geography, Art, Science, History, Music, and Technology. Through these engaging units, our young learners gain a deep understanding of the world around them and develop a strong foundation for future academic pursuits.

SEL (Social Emotional Learning)

At Verita, we understand that education is not solely about academics. It also encompasses emotional and social growth. Our Social Emotional Learning (SEL) program, “Second Step: Building Compassionate Classrooms,” focuses on several critical aspects. It helps students understand how to care for themselves and each other, particularly concerning their health and well-being. Additionally, it fosters resilience by teaching them about their bodies and their nervous system’s role in happiness and well-being. We also emphasize building positive connections with oneself and others, using essential skills for learning, recognizing acts of kindness, and exploring interdependence.

At Verita International School, we are committed to providing our young learners with a well-rounded education that equips them with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in life. Through our Early Years curriculum and these essential frameworks, we aim to lay the foundation for a future filled with intellectual curiosity, creativity, and empathy—qualities that will serve them well in an ever-changing world.
