Kindergarten

Language acquisition that begins early, is carefully guided by experts and happens in a natural environment leads to life-long competence.

“The sooner, the better.” When it comes to learning a language, this statement is irrefutable. In preschool, children are at an age when their language is particularly susceptible to outside influences. This is why it is important for them not only to practise the second language, but also to actually use it naturally to engage with the world. As a result, kindergarten will prove to be a varied and exciting time for both children and parents.

Our bilingual Kindergarten 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 Kindergarten 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 as well as games, sports and exercise, both indoors and outdoors, play an important role at SIS Zürich. The children take part in multi-class activities and projects, and celebrate local and international holidays and traditions alike. They also make their first age-appropriate steps in the world of information technology.
 

Rooms and Facilities

Our Kindergarten is located on the ground floor of our school building. During breaks and after class, the children can let off steam and play in the sheltered playground.
 

Duration

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.
