The IEYC launched in 2016, and is our International Early Years Curriculum for children aged 2–5 years old. It is used by over 500 nurseries and early year settings, in 60 countries worldwide. Improving learning in early years settings was part of our International Primary Curriculum for over 15 years. However, informed by new research, and feedback from member schools, it was clear that a new curriculum was needed to meet the needs of children at this crucial stage of their development. That was why we developed the IEYC.
The IEYC uses international best practices, holistic enquiry and play-based approaches that cover all curriculum areas including personal, social and emotional development.
Units of Learning: The units are based around exciting themes aimed to capture children’s natural curiosity.
