To efficiently incorporate sustainability and cognitive development into our academic program, we have adopted the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC
) Process of Learning. It is designed to support young children's holistic development, including cognitive, social-emotional, and physical domains.
Sustainability education is a significant aspect of the IEYC program, as it helps children understand and appreciate the natural environment and become responsible global citizens.
In this blog post, we will explore the IEYC Process of Learning, how sustainability is taught at Alpha Green Preschool, and the cognitive development benefits of sustainability education.
The IEYC Process of Learning is based on the principle that children learn best through hands-on experiences and play-based activities. The curriculum comprises many learning goals, covering personal, social, and emotional development, language and communication, and creative development. The learning principles are designed to ensure that children's learning experiences are meaningful, relevant, and engaging.
