The world is changing. Education is changing. Today, how children learn, is as important as what they learn. Our early learning education is in step with this natural inclination to design, engineer and innovate even from such a young age.

Stamford American’s early learning curriculum at The Village, is grounded in the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IBPYP) integrated with new units of inquiry incorporating STEAMInn - Science, Technology,Engineering, Arts, Mathematics and Innovation, to provide our young children with a unique State of the Heart learning.

We believe that children learn best through hands on experiences, in an environment where they are viewed as active participants in their learning. With this in mind, we have developed an education model which combines six subject investigations where every day moments are aligned to essential discovery learning. These key investigations are woven into the Units of Inquiry as they progress through their years of early learning.
