IEYC Program

Date: March 17, 2020 Author: The Intercultural School Categories: Our Curriculum

The International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC) is an innovative research-based toolkit, recognizing international best practice and the developmental needs of 2-5+ year old. The IEYC is a perfect tool for the transition phase, forging a seamless link between early and formal education.

Leading Principles



We focus on a process of learning   rather than relying solely on learning outcomes to drive a child’s development. Our IEYC process of learning captures children’s natural curiosity as a starting point and balances child-initiated and teacher – scaffolded provision within an enabling environment.

The IEYC Learning Strands

The IEYC has a set of four Learning Strands that underpin all learning and development. Each of the four Learning Strands     describes what children will experience and learn about through contextualized activities woven into IEYC units of learning. Each IEYC unit of learning has been carefully designed around a central theme, holistically linking all four Learning Strands to relevant and engaging activities that can be adapted and extended to meet    individual needs.
