Welcome to Lower Elementary
At UNIS Hanoi we know that the formative years of a child’s life, particularly from birth to age 6 are a crucial time in their development. We understand that the investment made in every child at this age will shape their future. We harness the extraordinary curiosity and capacity for new experience that characterises this distinct developmental phase in children.
At the heart of our programme in the Lower Elementary school which covers Discovery (3 year olds) to Grade 1 (6 year old students) we believe that young children possess an innate curiosity to wonder and to ask questions, to search for meaning and the interconnectedness of their surroundings and experiences.
Through the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) framework and our Early Childhood curriculum, we foster children’s natural curiosity through the creation of rich learning environments and intentionally designed learning experiences and assessments.
We believe that young learners are capable of constructing their own learning with, facilitation and guidance. Through a balanced approach to learning, our students are resilient, confident, creative and adaptive.
We provide a multi-sensory environment which responds to each child's learning experience, and allows for spontaneous learning.
As part of a Discovery to Grade 12 International Baccalaureate school, you can be confident that from the start your child will enjoy continuity for success throughout their schooling at UNIS Hanoi and beyond.
