The International Preschool Curriculum (IPC) was founded to strengthen and harmonize early childhood education standards. As a professional association that directly serves schools, learners, parents and governments, the IPC offers a unique set of products and services that promote active learning and effective practices in teaching.
Headquartered in the United States, the IPC's objective and research based curriculum meets the standards set by state departments and accreditation organizations. The IPC enjoys global recognition and works closely with governments to amend curricula materials if required to ensure local standard compliance. With the assistance of an advisory committee which consists of peers, consultants and academics, the IPC ensures the rigor and high quality of all published materials.
The IPC also offers an extensive Teacher Training Program which culminates in the IPC Teaching Certificate. As a 6 month course, the program reinforces essential teaching skills and establishes a minimum standard for teaching practices in IPC schools. There are also a growing number of continuing education units (CEU) and professional development courses available upon completion of the IPC Teacher Training Program.
With over 300 prospective and full members and with representation on 6 continents, the IPC has established an authoritative position in the field of international early childhood education. Since the launch of the its Preschool Franchise Program in 2010, IPC Quasi Franchises have been granted to preschools in the United States of America, United Arab Emirates, India, Thailand, Myanmar, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Malawi, Kazakhstan, Oman and Malaysia.
