The Early Childhood Department implements the Early Years Programme (EYP) that advocates the International Baccalaureate’s (IB) inquiry through play.
Play is a critical part of your child’s development and will be an integral part of his/her daily schedule at AIS. Research shows that play-based learning enhances young students’ academic and developmental learning outcomes. We strive to empower our students to be globally minded and independent learners, who will be able to make a difference.
Learning to critically think, problem-solve and resolve conflict are vital tools that every internationally-minded person must possess, so AIS places a great emphasis on developing these skills from a young age.
The EC classrooms are setup as different learning centres that promote inquiry in
• Information and Communications
• Art and Craft
• Dramatic Play
• Fine Motor
The students have time to move throughout the different centres. Also, the students have the following standalone lessons; Music, PE, French, Library, Swimming and Water Play.
