Primary Years Programme (PYP)
The Primary Years Programme (PYP) provides a framework through which teachers can structure the delivery of curriculum in a meaningful, inquiry-based and consistent approach.
The Alberta Education curriculum is provided through six units of inquiry that encourage global perspective and multi-subject learning. Each grade studies each unit of inquiry each year through age-appropriate curriculum allowing for deeper understanding.
Central to the PYP is the goal of developing students who are internationally minded, lifelong learners and inquirers, knowledgeable and skilled in many ways, who possess strong values and ethics and who are empowered to make a difference.
