The World Classroom programme offered at YCIS aims to extend students’ learning beyond the confines of the school campus and allow them to gain greater experience in a diverse range of countries across the globe. Children are given the opportunity to broaden their cross-cultural experiences and learn first-hand, through practical experience, as they travel to new and exciting places being part of a YCIS student team. The programme not only increases awareness of different cultures but also allows students to develop an appreciation for those cultures from another perspective.

Our unique research-based early childhood education programme is enjoyed by children aged 6 months to age five.
