Early Years (Kindergarten - PYP)

Young students learn life through life experiences. They learn through play and interactions with each other as well as the environments that surround them. Early Years students construct meaning through testing and interacting, with people and things, and this is how they make sense of the world around them.

At Leading Asia Myanmar International School we see play as essential in supporting children learning and development. Play, can of course occur in an indoor or outdoor environment and provides a context for them to feel comfortable and express themselves as well as a way to satisfy their natural curiosity. Through play, children can learn in a variety of ways as they engage socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually with other students, children, adults and the environment. Play that occurs in a safe and secure environment allows children to try new

things, take risks, solve problems and master learning situations. Teachers use these

opportunities to reinforce social aspects such as character, caring for others, fairness and personal responsibility.
