What is the Primary Years Programme (PYP)?
The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) is a transdisciplinary programme of international education
designed to foster the development of the whole child. It is for students aged 3 to 12. The PYP focuses on the total growth of
the developing child, touching hearts as well as minds. In addition to academic development the PYP encompasses social,
physical, emotional and cultural needs of individuals and groups.
The PYP draws on research and best practice from a range of national systems to create a relevant, engaging, challenging
and significant educational framework for all children.
Only IB World Schools (schools authorized by the IB) and candidate schools can offer the Primary Years Programme (PYP),
the Middle Years Programme (MYP) or the Diploma Program.
