The IB Primary Years Programme

At NES International - IB World School Mumbai, the Primary Years Programme is a blend of the best of both worlds - the IB (International Baccalaureate) Programme and the various national education systems.

The IB PYP programme focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. It is defined by six transdisciplinary themes of global significance, explored using knowledge and skills derived from six subject areas, with a powerful emphasis on inquiry-based learning.




A teacher’s influence can last an eternity, which is why the 1:20 student-teacher ratio at NES International - IB World School, ensures that every child is cared for.

Nobody knows better than you what your child needs. A rich learning experience is one of them and we intend to help you with it.


Risk Taker

Sanya Vishwakarma feared diving in water. During their regular swimming session, she was convinced to dive into the water to overcome her fear. She was reluctant at first, and after much persuasion she finally managed to dive into the pool from a height of 3 1/2 feet.. She not only overcame her fear but also learnt to take risks. From that day, diving into water became a cakewalk for her.


During one of the interactive session with our students, on functioning of body parts, students inquired a lot about the functioning of various vital organs of our body.

We had been for a field trip to a hearing impaired school in Bhandup. We noticed that Saumya and Aria were sitting besides a small child, trying to understand what the child wants. Both the girls reflected on being an open minded and caring person.
