Early Childhood Education (ECE) Program
The most important goal of our early childhood curriculum is to help children become enthusiastic learners. This means encouraging them to be active and creative explorers who are not afraid to try out their ideas and to think their own thoughts. We hope that they become independent, self-confident, inquisitive learners in an environment that is developmentally appropriate.
Additionally, we create opportunities for them to learn at their own pace and in the ways that are best for their developmental level. Our ECE program creates the foundation of skills and attitudes that prepare them for the elementary (grades 1 to 7) and subsequent middle (8 to 9) and secondary grades (grades 10 to 12) at BCCIS.

The British Columbia Curriculum
The British Columbia curriculum has been designed for teaching/learning in the 21st century. The goal is for our BCCIS students to graduate with the knowledge, skills and attitudes that they will need once they leave our schools.
The B.C. Ministry of Education overview of the curriculum is as follows:
At the heart of British Columbia’s redesigned curriculum are the Core Competencies, essential learning and literacy and numeracy foundations. All three features contribute to deeper learning.
Our vision for teaching Arabic at British Columbia Canadian International School is to achieve leadership and excellence in teaching & publishing Arabic in educational, research and entertainment contexts. We also want to encourage and stimulate the creative energies of the students through:
A safe learning environment that promotes creative and scientific thinking.
A comprehensive curriculum based on the standards of the Ministry of Education and that applies general international education methods and the Canadian education.
