What is the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Program (PYP) about?
The IB Primary Years Program (PYP) is intended for students from 3 to 12 years old and allows them to be trained and developed to be supportive and actively participate in learning during lifetime. Encourages students to think for themselves and take responsibility for their own learning as they explore local and global issues and opportunities in real-life contexts . 1 The PEP focuses on the child's overall development and ability of inquiry and discovery, both in the classroom and in the world that surrounds him/her.
The program is a transformative experience for students, teachers and the school community. PYP students learn to take charge of their own learning, while teachers collaborate to deepen that learning and increase the self-motivation of the students and their self-confidence. It is considered that members of the entire school community, including parents, can collaborate in learning and actively contribute to a holistic educational experience.
