Domuschola’s Primary Years curriculum follows the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (PYP) from Nursery to Grade 5. The international curriculum framework was designed for all children between the ages of 3 and 12 years and is part of a continuing program that culminates in the IB Diploma at the age of 19. This qualification is welcomed and recognized by universities both local and abroad.
The Primary Years Programme (PYP) focuses upon the total growth of the developing child affecting hearts as well as minds and addressing social, physical, emotional and cultural needs in addition to academic welfare which balances understanding, the acquisition of essential knowledge and skills, the development of positive attitudes and the opportunity for positive action.

The curricular framework is organized around six units of inquiry within six transdisciplinary themes namely:
- Who we are
