Early years multilingual support is based on the international educational concept known as the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP).
As in our preschool, priority is given to the children’s playful, bilingual development, which takes into account their different levels of development and interests. We lay the foundations for learning to read in both languages and the joy of dealing with numbers. The children are encouraged to ask questions and learn by experimenting so that they can perceive the world independently, respectfully and with a thirst for knowledge when they are older. We also set great store by outdoor free play. Through the use of our forest-related education, we provide the enthusiastic children creative freedom every Tuesday afternoon and by doing so, creating environmental awareness and respect for nature.
Regardless of the weather, we take the children outdoors every day. The broad infrastructure of the whole school is also available to the children in this age group. This includes specialist rooms for art, creativity and music. Furthermore, the programme includes active games, gymnastics, exercise and dance in the multifunctional assembly hall as well as exciting participation in school performances with primary and secondary school students. Depending on the parents’ professional situation and personal needs, we offer full-day care for 4-to-6-year-old children or part-time care of at least five half days per week if preschool is completed with us.
We provide children who already attend public preschool the opportunity to immerse themselves in the bilingual world of our school on two additional half days.
