We offer a Global IES method. An eclectic symmetry that supports good practice.
The Global IES curriculum reinforces a journey that not only addresses students’ cognitive development, but also their social, emotional, and physical development.
If a child’s learning is continued on a natural bases, according to their individual instinct, with careful guidance, their pleasure in learning will continue.
The Global IES curriculum is based on this premise. It is designed to enhance a child’s natural instinct and thirst for knowledge.
The method incorporates both National and International criteria, and ensures a solid foundation, which allows for streaming into any other form of education.
ALL study is conducted in both Dutch and English.
While the Global IES method offers bilingual fluency, the essence of this method is the manner of education. Children acquire the mind-set of independent learning.
The teachers guide the children toward the specific objectives.
After a foundation explanation on a specific subject, each child's proficiencies and challenges are determined. Children then follow personal projects - individually or in pairs.
Proficiency projects allow the child to further their curiosity on a particular subject and explore the subject in depth.
Challenges projects assist the child in their reaching of understanding of the subject.
Children present their completed projects to the group.
The proficiency projects offer the rest of the group an insight into the chosen subject.
Challenges projects offer examples of achievement.
Presentations of these projects serve to promote confidence and pride of accomplishment, as well as presentation skills.
Students are exposed to foundation subjects and taught the relevant skills.
Teachers guide the students in their exploration of discovery
by stimulating their natural curiosity.
Both critical thinking and creative thinking are mastered.
