Key Benefits of the International Preschool Curriculum

The importance of early childhood education can never be stressed enough. The emotional, social and physical development of your child will have a direct effect on their overall development and on the adult they will become. A recent study looking at the impact of preschool found compelling evidence for early education, indicating that children who attended 400 or more days of preschool at ages 2-3 years old scored higher on IQ tests than children of similar backgrounds who attended pre-school less often or not at all. That’s why investing in your child’s education right from the very beginning is so crucial if you want to maximize their future well being.

The International Preschool Curriculum was developed to raise the standard of preschool education, designing it to be more global and all-encompassing, focusing on improving and enhancing the whole individual. All across the world today, families, teachers and communities are experiencing the enormous benefits of IPC’s world-class curriculum. Present now in over 100 schools, across 6 continents, IPC has introduced a more progressive and innovative global education system.

At Grey Matter Montessori, we are passionate about providing world-class education to our students which is why we’ve adopted the international preschool curriculum to further augment the benefits of the Montessori method, striving to fulfill all your child’s educational and developmental needs.

What does the IPC curriculum involve?

The IPC curriculum was founded with the intention of promoting cultural harmony through progressive and global education and all the curricula are designed to cultivate critical thinking, enhance self-awareness and promote plurality through an understanding of other cultures.

Based on proven and peer-review concepts, the IPC curriculum is professionally designed in-house by the IPC design-studio, who works closely with individual governments to tailor the curricula materials to ensure local compliance.

Including play, inquiry and objective-based learning styles, the IPC curriculum includes various thematic units which cover 6 crucial learning areas:

  • Language Arts
  • Numeracy
  • Creative Arts
  • Socio-emotional Skills
  • Sciences
  • Motor Skills

In addition, the IPC curriculum encourages active parental involvement, which is why every thematic unit comes with a corresponding parent newsletter. These are designed to inform parents of what is being taught in the classroom and includes several activities so that your child’s learning can continue at home.

How can the IPC benefit my child?

The IPC is a thoughtfully designed curriculum, built to encourage individual learning and to provide children with a diverse early education. This innovative, advanced method has many benefits, including:

  • Comprehensive Learning - The IPC curriculum includes several learning aides including student workbooks, flashcards and worksheets. Each IPC preschool is given a wide selection of emergent literacy designed to enhance your child’s learning and reading ability.
  • Parental involvement- The IPC provides parents with practical guides to help you better understand your child’s education process so that learning can continue throughout the day. All IPC schools are trained to provide parents with daily communications on their child’s development.
  • Teacher training and support - Designed by a teaching fellow of Harvard University, the IPC Teacher Training course is provided to the staff of all IPC schools, culminating in the IPC Teacher Certificate. In addition, teachers have access to a variety of professional development courses and consultancy guides to allow them to better enhance the education of all our students.
