Preschool

All children have an innate desire to know about their world and are using many ways to develop this understanding. This concept is the driving force of our pedagogy. We create meaningful learning engagements that empower them to become life-long learners.

LANGUAGE offers

Bilingual: Involves the presence of German and English at the same time. This may be a German speaking teacher and English speaking teaching assistant or vice versa.

Dual Immersion: The children are immersed in one language at a time, however equal amounts of time in German and English. Within the Preschool we follow a wave model. This model allows immersion in equal amount of German and English in both mornings and afternoons over a 2 weeks’ period.


A Day in the life of Pre-School

Our Preschool curriculum is built on the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP). Your child will be exposed to an inquiry-based learning environment with focus on language, mathematical, scientific, artistic, and physical disciplines. Through inquiry, children will construct a developmentally appropriate understanding of their world.
