Posted by Michelle Dickinson on Feb 10, 2018 7:00:00 AM

At One World International School, we understand the critical importance of early childhood education for laying the foundation for your children’s cognitive, social and emotional development. The right program can maximize your child’s development during this formative period while cultivating a life-long love of learning and self-inquiry. OWIS follows the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP), a curriculum framework that includes an “Early Years” component designed for preschool-age children prior to the start of formal schooling. PYP Early Years focuses on inquiry-led, play-based learning in rich and stimulating learning environments that integrate the natural world into the classroom, both indoors and outside.
