Curriculum

The EIS Preschool offers an integrated approach for teaching and learning for children from 2.5 to 6 years of age. The program is designed in accordance with the IB PYP philosophy and establishes a strong foundation for learning in early years, as well as creates a holistic learning experience that integrates social, emotional, physical and cognitive development in a safe, caring, play-based, and academically enriching environment.

We emphasize interaction and language development through uniquely arranged spaces and materials.

At EIS we:

  • provide our students with opportunities to interact with each otherand a range of materials.
  • promote play and opportunities for an inquiry.
  • support students with developing relational abilities (for example, playing with peers, sharing and taking turns, and respecting others). We promote independence, social interaction, relationship building, and engagement.
  • provide many opportunities for symbolic exploration and expression, and support students in developing their representational abilities (such as oral and written language, drawing, and mathematical symbols).
  • support language learning, through opportunities for physical movement, imaginary, and cooperative play, as well as, model language around exploration through talk-alouds.

Through language, students:

  • Express identity
  • Develop international-mindedness
  • Become literate
  • Become effective inquirers
  • Communicate

How do we support student curiosity about languages? These might include seeing, hearing and sharing languages:

  • Spoken and sung
  • Displayed through different alphabets, number charts, posters, and labels
  • Used in learning spaces and games
  • Through learning experiences within a unit of inquiry
  • From other members of the learning community
