International Early Years Curriculum


The IEYC supports key areas of learning through holistic enquiry

The IEYC supports key areas of learning through holistic enquiry and play-based approaches that cover all curriculum areas including personal, social and emotional development. Its unique process of learning shifts the focus from measuring outcomes to driving children’s learning and development.

Though originally UK-based, the IEYC can be applied to any curriculum and this is one of the many reasons it was the perfect choice for Dadi Prestige International Academy as it can be interwoven with the Chinese-taught Dadi programme.

The IEYC covers all aspects of a child’s educational learning journey through 4 unique learning strands. These are;

  • Independence and Interdependence
  • Communication
  • Enquiry
  • Understanding the World

This ensures that your child’s academic, personal and international goals are all met, with children experiencing a process of learning through engaging, thematic units.

The IEYC was founded on 8 guiding principles, which create the framework for children’s learning. Here at DPIA, we will combine these 8 principles along with our vision, mission and philosophy in order to create the most effective learning environment for your child.
