In­ter­na­tional School of Phnom Penh's In­ter­na­tional Bac­calau­re­ate pro­gramme, spe­cial­ist Early Years ed­u­ca­tors and world-class learn­ing fa­cil­i­ties pro­vide the per­fect en­vi­ron­ment for de­vel­op­ing cu­rios young minds.

At In­ter­na­tional School of Phnom Penh (ISPP), we know that very young minds need nur­tur­ing, stim­u­lat­ing and sup­port­ive in­ter­ac­tions with their peers and teach­ers. This is a time when a solid foun­da­tion can be laid to pre­pare chil­dren for fu­ture learn­ing and reach­ing their full po­ten­tial.

ISPP ac­knowl­edges that each child is unique and through the world-lead­ing In­ter­na­tional Bac­calau­re­ate (IB) cur­ricu­lum, their nat­u­ral cu­rios­ity is built upon, pro­vid­ing a safe and holis­tic learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment through in­quiry-led play to dis­cover and de­velop both pos­i­tive re­la­tion­ships and an un­der­stand­ing of the world around them.

Based on the three main tenets of play, en­vi­ron­ment and re­la­tion­ships, our Early Years pro­gramme (part of the II3 Pri­mary Years Pro­gramme (PYP)), has been thought­fully de­signed to give 3-5 year olds a dy­namic start, en­cour­ag­ing them to be­come self-aware, ac­tive and com­pas­sion­ate life­long learn­ers, along­side de­vel­op­ing their so­cial, emo­tional, phys­i­cal and cog­ni­tive ca­pac­i­ties.

Re­search sup­ports the ef­fec­tive­ness of the IB PYP in an early years set­ting in pre­par­ing chil­dren for school readi­ness. A study by Deakin Univer­sity in Aus­tralia of four such pro­grammes in both Aus­tralia and Sin­ga­pore found that chil­dren per­formed at lev­els com­men­su­rate with or bet­ter in terms of school readi­ness and de­vel­oped learn­ing skills at higher rates.

Upon com­plet­ing the Early Years pro­gramme, your child will have the op­por­tu­nity to be­come a highly en­gaged learner, ready to take their nat­u­ral in­quiry and cu­rios­ity, self-con­fi­dence and sense of re­spon­si­bil­ity fur­ther into the PYP and one step closer to de­vel­op­ing into a valu­able global cit­i­zen of the fu­ture.
