International Preschool Curriculum (IPC)
International Preschool Curriculum (IPC) was established as the world’s first international preschool program with the objective of raising world standards in preschool education and better preparing children for primary or elementary schooling years. The IPC is headquartered in the US with locations worldwide. The IPC’s objective and research based curriculum meets the standards set by state departments and accreditation organizations. The IPC is internationally recognized and works closely with governments to amend curricula materials if required to ensure local compliance.
The International Preschool Curriculum consists of thematic units. All units encompass six trans-disciplinary content learning areas:
|(1) Language Arts
(2) Socio-Emotional Skills
(4) Creative and Visual Arts
(6) Fine and Gross Motor Skills
The curriculum is based on proven and peer reviewed concepts that include play, inquiry and objective based learning styles.
There are five underlying themes and objectives of the IPC which are designed to cultivate critical thinking, raise self-awareness, promote an understanding of other cultures and encourage internationalism and multilingualism.
The IPC takes the prevailing view that the first few years of a child’s life provide a vital opportunity for development. The IPC involves family and parents wherever possible in understanding and facilitating the objectives of the organization.
