Our Early Years Programme offers a rich, challenging and stimulating curriculum designed to generate an enthusiasm for learning and value it as a life-long process.
The International School of Monza endeavours to ensure the development of a strong foundation of skills, knowledge and understanding while meeting the needs of the individual child.
The Early Years Programme is founded on the belief that all children are naturally curious and disposed to learning. They are creative, imaginative, energetic and resourceful. The focus of the curriculum aims to capitalise on these natural dispositions by providing meaningful, meaningful, authentic learning experiences which support and develop children's knowledge and understanding

Reggio-Inspired Early Years Coordinator “Our learning journey starts with a rich, safe and stimulating environment that reflects the image of the child. In line with the Reggio-Inspired approach we consider the child as relational, competent, curious and subject to rights. Every day we strive to encourage and support our children’s natural right to social interaction and to promote a culture of playful learning where elements of choice, respect, wonder, beauty and delight are carefully composed in order to help our young learners blossom at their own pace.”
As an integral part of the IB Primary Years Programme our Early Years curriculum takes a trans-disciplinary inquiry approach to learning and is inspired by the philosophy and practice of the world renowned Italian Reggio Approach. Children are given time to explore concepts and construct their theories together with teachers in small groups:
elaborating their understanding through all expressive, creative, verbal and mathematical languages
creating natural connections between mathematics, science, digital technology and the expressive arts
developing language within an authentic full immersion context
The flexibility in thinking involved encourages not only the development of proficient language skills but also the creative and lateral thinking skills necessary for success in the 21st century.
