The heart of our Primary Years Programme program lies in the renowned International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP). Designed for children aged 3 to 11, the PYP encapsulates authentic inquiry-based learning that is engaging, meaningful, and relevant. Guided by a profound understanding of how learners learn, the PYP nurtures young minds as active, caring participants in an everlasting education journey.
The PYP is a transdisciplinary curriculum framework that promotes inquiry-concept driven learning. Through a holistic approach, students learn to appreciate the interconnectedness of knowledge, conceptual understanding, skills, and personal attributes. In our dynamic PYP classrooms, curiosity is ignited, leading to inquiry-led learning that sparks genuine interest and enthusiasm.
At Makers Learning School, our commitment to excellence is underlined by our integration of the US Common Core, Next Generation Science, and AERO Social Studies Standards—all intricately woven into our PYP Practices and Principles. This unique approach ensures that each student's educational journey is meticulously tailored to meet their needs while adhering to globally recognized standards.
Our collaborative approach extends to the development of units of inquiry, a testament to our commitment to growth, reflection, and hands-on learning. Teachers and PYP coordinator work together to craft these units, providing fertile ground for exploration, understanding, and authentic experiences.
