Jumeira Baccalaureate School shares the benefits of starting an IB education from a young age and the positive impact it has on the children at their school.
At Jumeira Baccalaureate School, we pride ourselves on students attaining high academic standards, however we are more than this. Truly excellent education is about developing a passion for life-long learning and a capability for independent thinking. Our students are encouraged to discover interests that extend beyond the classroom from a young age. Our school community has over 65 different nationalities, enabling students to develop moral values, display kindness, courage, respect and integrity towards each other throughout our diverse and multicultural environment.
We are a fully authorised IB World School, offering the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP). The PYP is a student-centered, inquiry-based curriculum framework that builds conceptual understanding, impacts the way children learn and positively assists with their social and emotional development to prepare them for a constantly changing future. The Early Years, part of the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP), focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in school and in the world beyond.
In a challenging and supportive environment, children learn through play. Even a simple, chance event – such as a child’s discovery of a butterfly in the outdoor play area — can be turned into an exciting opportunity to learn. Our warm and welcoming classrooms, vast outdoor play areas and state-of-the-art facilities allow our students to flourish. Students also have access to the depth and breadth of the IB curriculum supported by specialist teachers in the Arts, PE and Languages using age appropriate and subject specific facilities.
We develop our children’s language skills in a “language-rich” environment. Teachers help children stretch their language skills by asking thought-provoking questions and introducing new vocabulary during science, art, snack time, and other activities. Arabic and French are taught from Pre-KG.
Our faculty is highly qualified with age-appropriate graduate qualifications who are also accredited IB teachers who follow industry best practices and truly represents an international community who nurture their student’s curiosity and motivation to learn.
Putting your child in JBS instead of a nursey is now an affordable option with the ultimate benefit of receiving world-class education as your child’s school journey takes off.
