PYP: Home

Welcome to the PYP at WAB

The Primary Years Programme nurtures and develops young students as caring, active participants in a lifelong journey of learning through a student-centered approach to education. The PYP is a curriculum framework designed for students aged 3 to 12. The programme focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world. It is defined by six transdisciplinary themes of global significance, explored using knowledge and skills derived from six subject areas, with an emphasis on inquiry-based learning.

PYP Programme Model

The PYP curriculum framework emphasizes the central principle of agency that is threaded throughout the three pillars of the curriculum: the learner, learning and teaching, and the learning community.

PYP learning is based on authentic inquiry-based learning and teaching that is engaging, significant, challenging and relevant. The program is based on educational principles and practices that will position learners as agents of their own learning at the center.
