IB Primary Years Programme

The IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) nurtures and develops young students as caring, active participants in a lifelong journey of learning. The PYP offers an inquiry-based, transdisciplinary curriculum framework that builds conceptual understanding through a student-centered approach. Learn more about the IB Primary Years Programme.

PYP Curriculum

The pillars of the PYP curriculum framework: The transdisciplinary model extends across all three pillars of the PYP curriculum framework—the learner, learning and teaching, and the learning community. 

The learner: Describes the outcomes for individual students and the outcomes they seek for themselves (what is learning?).

Learning and teaching: Articulates the distinctive features of learning and teaching (how best to support learners?).

The learning community: Emphasizes the importance of the social outcomes of learning and the role that IB communities play in achieving these outcomes (who facilitates learning and teaching?).
