The teaching model for Beyond Basic Learning: The International School (BBLI) is based on differentiated learning, which takes into account that not all children learn in the same manner or style.
A leading psychologist in the study of young children, Leve Semenovich Vygotsky, advocates that an effective educational approach for understanding and nurturing children's competencies and educational frameworks must take into account each child's history and cultural background. Therefore, BBLI provides instruction that is designed to meet individual educational needs: physical emotional, social and cognitive.
In alignment with our teaching model, our classrooms are named to reflect the stages in the metamorphosis of a butterfly - Cocoon, Caterpillar and Butterfly:
Cocoon classrooms serve young and older infants
Caterpillar classrooms are for toddlers
Butterfly classrooms serve our pre-school children
Kindergarten classrooms children must be 5 by December 1st
