Our German/English bilingual Pre-school and Kindergarten is based in Thalwil. Here, the children are organised into two age groups.
The Pre-school group, (ages 3 - 4 years), is run following Montessori principles, building self-confidence and independence. Each child is supported individually, to encourage their in-built desire to learn. Minimum attendance in the Pre-schoo group is two days per week.
The Kindergarten group, (ages 4 - 6 years), follows the official Zuerich Kindergarten curriculum. A wide range of activities are available, including group work, projects, individual and free play, sport in the sport's hall, walks in the woods, excursions, early music, painting and English/German lessons.
The full Swiss mandatory Kindergarten education is achieved by attending 3 days per week, over 39 weeks per year. Although your children are entitled to 13 weeks holidays per year, we are only closed during 4 weeks. This means, it is upon your discretion to choose which other 9 weeks (if at all) you want to take your holidays.
