Our International Curriculum
Montessori has a proven, 112-year-long history of nurturing children across the world to take ownership of their own learning. Similarly, the International Baccalaureate (IB) has, over the last 50 years, successfully groomed children into caring and active participants in a life-long journey of learning.
Children who work within the Montessori method are ahead of the curve. They tend to excel because they are guided to challenge themselves and follow their innate desire to learn. Kai follows the Montessori approach to help children learn independence, understand responsibility, and enjoy being creative and curious.
Taught in over 109 countries around the world, the International Baccalaureate-Primary Years Programme (IB-PYP)* offers an exceptionally well-articulated, transdisciplinary framework that focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both at school and beyond. Informed by research into how students learn, how educators should teach, and the principles and practices of effective assessment, the programme places a powerful emphasis on inquiry-based learning. At Kai, we leverage the standards and practices of the IB-PYP* to develop the academic, social and emotional well-being of our children, focusing on international-mindedness, personal values and enabling a strong sense of self.
Kai is raising the bar in early years education by combining two well-validated educational methodologies. We have been Montessori practitioners and early years educators for the last 35 years and are currently in the process of obtaining the IB-PYP* accreditation.
