International Private School Program for Children Ages 3-12 (Taught through English)

- The Early Years Program (3-5 Years)
The International Cottage recognizes that the early learning years are a key developmental time in a child’s life. The Early Years program includes Units of Inquiry which allow children to develop knowledge and conceptual understanding of the world around them. Students are also given a firm foundation in the areas of literacy and numeracy, providing the building blocks for future academic success.

Our learning environment is structured to meet the unique needs of children from 3 to 5 years old. It contains child-centered materials so that all theorical learning can be reinforced with practical experience and exploration.

- Primary Years Program (PYP)
Our primary programme aims to provide a broad and stimulating, international, educational experience. Our mixed-age classes enable the children to learn at their own pace following individualized learning objectives. Our international teaching staff bring a wealth of experience and diversity to the school. Their teaching methods are inspired by innovative classroom practices from all over the world and are informed by the principles and practices of the IBPYP curriculum.

All pupils follow a core curriculum with an emphasis on guided enquiry as the teaching pedagogy. Children are encouraged to become independant thinkers and enquirers as they develop knowledge and conceptual understandings within all subject areas.

- Mixed-age Classrooms
The International Cottage is committed to providing each student with the individual attention they need to progress according to their own developmental potential. For this reason we use a multiage classroom model. The research supporting mixed-age classrooms indicates that academic achievement is the same as, or better than, the academic achievement of children in same-grade classrooms.
