As part of Lausanne's International Baccalaureate curriculum, the Primary Years Programme (PYP) is an inquiry-based program at Lausanne for students in Pre-Kindergarten (PK) through 4th grade that takes the best of teaching and learning worldwide to create classes that are challenging, exciting and perfect for the developing minds of children. It focuses on developing the whole child as an inquirer in both the classroom and the world outside. This helps students grow socially, emotionally and academically.
They become aware of other cultures and peoples, exploring their common humanity while appreciating their differences—all to create a better, more peaceful world. This provides them with a foundation that they build upon in their journey through Lausanne's Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the IB Diploma Programme (DP).
