Early Years Program

Early Years Philosophy

The Early Years in the Village School at Chadwick International is comprised of Pre-K, Kindergarten and Grade 1. We follow the IBPYP curricular framework and recognize the importance of respecting the unique differences of our youngest learners. We see them as competent and capable. As the IB states (‘Making the PYP Happen’ p.7), “Children, from birth, are full of curiosity, and the PYP provides a framework that gives crucial support for them to be active inquirers and lifelong learners.” To that end, we draw upon pedagogical approaches that are developmentally appropriate for young children.
