The curriculum at WCLA is based on the English National Curriculum and the International Primary Curriculum. In the early development years, ages 3 through 5, students receive instruction in 6 key development areas:
- Personal, social, and emotional development
- Language and literacy
- Mathematical development
- Knowledge and understanding of the world
- Physical development and creative development
