What is the Primary Years Programme?
The IB Primary Years Programme, for students aged 3 to 12, focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. It is an international, transdisciplinary programme designed to foster the development of the whole child, not just in the classroom but also through other means of learning. The PYP focuses on the total growth of the developing child encompassing social, physical, emotional, and cultural needs in addition to academic welfare.
The PYP encourages the development of the traits described in the IB learner profile. It describes the qualities IB students develop and display as they learn.
