About the Primary Years Programme (PYP)
The PYP, for students from Kindergarten to Grade 5, fosters the development of the whole child; their academic, social, emotional, physical and cultural needs. It also emphasizes our responsibility as global citizens to help others and the environment. This aligns with Leo Baeck’s vision and mission and our commitment to Tikkun Olam (repairing the world).
The PYP curriculum establishes enriching and engaging learning conditions for students by using six approaches to teaching.
IB Approaches to Teaching:
- Developed in local and global contexts
- Focused on effective teamwork and collaboration
- Differentiated to meet the needs of all learners
- Informed by formative and summative assessment
These approaches are in line with best practices and current research in the field of education.
