Excelsior International School offers the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC) for children between the age of 3 and 5 years old. It is a balanced and holistic programme that provides a rich breadth of activities and opportunities for the development of the whole child.
In Excelsior International School, we strive to provide a comprehensive programme that balances the individual stages of each child's social, emotional, physical and academic development, within a child-centred, teacher-guided, international environment. We aim to foster each child's curiosity, creativity, confidence and independence, in order to nurture a love of learning at school, at home and throughout their lives. Our goal is to expose children to a meaningful curriculum of skills, attitudes and knowledge, through developmentally appropriate activities, that the children will build upon throughout their academic careers.
The IEYC is a new research- and inquiry-based curriculum, recognising global best practice in early childhood education and the developmental needs of the 2 to 5 year olds. It supports key areas of learning through holistic enquiry and play-based approaches that cover all curriculum areas including personal, social and emotional development. The IEYC's approach to learning is inspiring, and the units, which are based on eight guiding principles, are based around exciting themes aimed to capture children's natural curiosity.
