Our bilingual Preschool is a day school that offers a well-supervised, safe and stimulating learning environment for children aged three to six. SIS has developed its own curriculum for children in this age group, comprising six areas of learning and discovery. Our Preschool is the ideal preparation for the transition into the bilingual SIS Primary School.
Bilingual from Day One
The children are supervised by German- and English-speaking teachers, who use their native languages to communicate with their students. As such, German and English are heard and spoken in almost equal measure throughout the day, and the children grow up bilingually in a natural way.
Eventful School Days
Regular trips to the woods and the waterside, games, exercise and movement both indoors and outdoors play an important role at SIS Basel. Furthermore, the children take part in activities and projects with other classes, and celebrate local and international festivals and traditions. They also gain their first, age-appropriate experiences working with a computer.
Rooms and Facilities
Our preschool classrooms are located on the ground floor of our school building. Our youngest students feel at home in a variety of group rooms and a gymnastics room. Additionally, during breaks and after class, they can let off steam and play in the sheltered playground underneath the big chestnut trees.
Children can attend our kindergarten for any length of time between one and three years. Children can also be enrolled during the course of the academic year.
