The IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) is a curriculum framework designed for students aged 3 to 12. It focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. It is defined by six Transdisciplinary themes of global significance, explored using knowledge and skills derived from six subject areas, with a powerful emphasis on inquiry-based learning. The PYP leads directly into the Middle Years Programme (MYP). It can also prepare learners for other inquiry based middle years programmes as most of the knowledge; skills and understanding that students acquire during PYP are readily transferable.
The PYP is a way of teaching and learning it is usually taught in conjunction with a curriculum which details more specific content. At DIA we have taken the best from national curricula around the world and benchmarked this content against Cambridge International Standards.
