Since 2007, House of Knowledge (HoK) has grown to include an elementary school and three kindergartens, educating 300 children from more than 10 countries. Early Year learners follow the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC), which has been extensively recognized around the world. IEYC is a research-based curriculum focused on the social, emotional, and cognitive development needs of children age 2-5. It maintains the Reggio Emilia philosophy of child-centered and personalized learning. In the pursuit of creating a rigorous elementary curriculum for internationally minded students, HoK adopted the highly regarded International Primary Curriculum (IPC). The IPC is a comprehensive thematic curriculum with emphasis placed on meeting students at their academic and developmental level. At HoK, we prepare students for this world of constant change and aim to help them develop the personality traits they need to succeed in the 21st century.
