Are you looking for a dream school for your little one?

The D-PREP Early Years Program will inspire your child to enjoy learning, explore with curiosity and imagination, grow their self-help and social skills, and most importantly, love coming to school!

We are an innovative international school located in the Megabangna community, Bangna area. We are currently offering Nursery-Grade 7 for the 2021-2022 school year. Each future year we add a new grade level.

With the best early childhood pedagogical inspirations from Reggio Emilia, Italy, inquiry-based learning, and a safe and loving environment that puts children first, they will surely thrive at D-PREP.

D-PREP International School is a Candidate School* for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education that D-PREP believes is important for our students.

*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit www.ibo.org

What is the PYP?

The PYP is an internationally recognized, research based curriculum framework designed for students from 3 to 12 years old.

The PYP promotes learning through inquiry; by developing and asking questions structured around key concepts, students research answers, pose and solve problems and engage in meaningful learning experiences that promote the acquisition of knowledge. The PYP also supports the development of a wide range of skills as an essential part of the curriculum, empowering students to be effective life-long learners and succeed in a challenging world. Positive attitudes towards learning, the environment and the people around us are viewed as being essential to student success in an ever changing world. Taking action offers children the opportunity to apply their knowledge in the real world.

The central focus of all three IB programmes is the development of the individual learner.  As such, the IB Learner profile is of key importance. Children are consistently encourage to reflect on their growth within the ten profile elements which support them to develop as internationally minded and effective world citizens. 

inquirers, thinkers, communicators, risk takers, knowledgeable, principled, balanced, open minded, reflective, caring

Our Early Years Program is for students in Nursery 1 to Kindergarten 2, between the ages of 2-6 years of age.

We take inspiration and influence from the Reggio Emilia approach and Finnish Education. Class projects are very student-led and student-centered.

The environment is an important part of the curriculum as well as using natural and recycled materials, and exploration inside and outside of the classroom.
