What? A flexible bilingual program that allows both children who speak English to learn French and those who speak French to learn English. A caring program that prepares children for primary school.
Where? In multi-age groups that are formed based on the activities and language chosen. This grouping promotes peer-to-peer learning in playful and spontaneous conditions and has shown to be beneficial for all involved.
How? Project-based learning, discovery and play are all important parts of the kindergarten program. Children acquire the necessary foundational skills to be successful in elementary school in a caring environment. Time outside and rest are an integral part of kindergartener's days at International School Strasbourg.
Why? Young children have an enormous potential for learning. They are supported as they learn to use both French and English. The international environment in which they learn also helps them to understand at an early age that others are different. This is the first step to valuing difference.
