Lower School

Early Years Program (EYP) (3 – 6 year olds)

Fully Integrated

A fully integrated part of the Lower School, the Early Years Program (EYP) encourages learning through a hands-on, inquiry-based approach.

Early Years are Vital Years

The early years are vital years in children’s lives as they develop and consolidate many skills. Children in the Early Years Program are grouped according to age as follows:

 

EYP 1: ages 3 to 4

EYP 2: ages 4 to 5

EYP 3: ages 5 to 6

Develop at their own pace

Students at the International School of Ulm/ Neu-Ulm are able to develop at their own pace in an environment that stimulates and encourages learning through exploration and inquiry. The program is English language-based, with an emphasis on songs, poems, finger-plays, and activities in which language plays an integral part. Additionally, we introduce basic mathematical concepts such as shape, space, and number in context.

 


Our Early Year Program

 

Preparing young learners for grade one, we place a high priority on social interaction with groups enjoying free play, creative art, and many opportunities for communication.

 

Children in EYP also have P.E. “physical education” and library lessons during the week, while EYP 3 also has scheduled German lessons. EYP students also take part in Lower School activities, programs, assemblies, special exhibitions, displays, and field trips.

 

All three EYP classes are actively involved with the child’s emotional and social development. We emphasize skills, which will help your child to become an independent young learner. We also aim to develop caring, respectful students who have a life-long love of learning.
