We are living in the 21st Century and we need a curriculum to match.

It is no longer good enough to throw children into an existing program and hope they do well with it. The game has changed.
The 21st century is a whole new world compared to the previous world order.
Key qualities that we now need in order to succeed, both in a business sense and in the most important sense – in life – are creativity, imagination, innovation and communication skills.
Today’s society has such an international flavour, so it’s essential that educators and curriculars recognise the importance of engaging successfully with all sorts of different people.
Children do best when the curriculum is based on a real understanding of their specific developmental level.
The ICLCA is a curriculum designed to suit the child, not visa versa.
We need schools where student’s and teachers love going to school.
