Our teachers use an academically challenging curriculum, developed in the United States, and adapted for our International student body. In Addition, our creative and forward-thinking teachers draw from their own expertise and experience to engage their students in the exciting adventure of learning. Our teachers are extremely skilled in creating an environment where learning is fun, engaging and interesting to all students.

Creative Curriculum:
We follow forward-thinking, comprehensive, research-based and research-proven curriculum resources. These help preschool teachers, toddlers and caregivers to be their most effective, while still honoring their creativity and respecting their critical role in making learning exciting and relevant for every child.

Our early childhood educators offer developmentally appropriate programs that support active learning and promote children’s progress in all developmental areas. As the field of early childhood education has evolved, so too has the Creative Curriculum, Incorporating the latest research and best practices and taking the needs of every type of learner into account. IPW is a high-quality learning environment that enables every child to become a confident and creative thinker. We also subscribe to Scholastics, Mailbox and NAYEC for our teachers and students.

We love to explore and discover ways of learning and meeting the needs of each individual child. At IPW, we create a high-quality learning environment with hands-on, project-based Investigations, and learning through play to build a child’s confidence, creativity and critical thinking skills and to promote lifelong learners.

is a welcoming environment for families and students; we inspire and challenge students intellectually, creatively, emotionally and physically. Our environment is vibrant and exciting with a positive learning environment. The preschool offers caring, nurturing environment in which the children can develop socially and intellectually. The well supervised (low ratio), carefully planned, play-based curriculum draws from both the Montessori and traditional perspectives, providing students with structure and routine, while encouraging creative expression and imagination. Reading and math readiness, and introduction to art, music, science, geography and nature are integral parts of the curriculum. The curriculum enables children with a smooth transition to other local private schools (i.e. American School of Warsaw, British School or the International American School) etc.
