Successful students with an international education exhibit a number of desired attributes and dispositions that are articulated in the International Baccalaureate Learner Profile.
Students in Kindergarten (3-4 years old) and Transition (4-5 years old) make up the Early Years section of our school, and follow 4 Units of Inquiry, rather than 6, in a year.
In the Early Years learning is play-based. Our young students engage in varied and stimulating activities which allow them to explore the world in a safe and encouraging environment.
Early Years students are fully immersed in the English language, allowing them to develop their linguistic skills immediately and with very positive results.
