Early Years Programme


Small classes; a caring community

Pre-School Programme

The Pre-School Programme at ICS - for our youngest students, aged from 3-5 - is a nurturing and dynamic community.

Teaching Team

The philosophy of the pre-school teaching team places the child at the centre of his/her individual learning journey.

Early Years 1 or Nursery Bilingual Strand

Early Years 1 Bilingual Strand. From August 2016, children in Early Years 1 (age 3) can learn English and German.

Family Involvement

At the Inter-Community School Zurich, we place importance on families being involved in the class and the wider school community.

Primary Years Programme

The Early Years Programme is part of the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum we offer throughout ICS. As our staff encourage Early Years students to inquire and ask questions, they are introducing them to a style of learning used throughout the IB programme. This helps the children if they stay in the IB programme, but also gives them a strong grounding if they transfer into another education system, as the IB curriculum is recognised worldwide. See the International Baccalaureate Organisation's video below about Early Years and Primary Years learning.

Extended Care Programme

ICS offers an extended care programme before and after school. Please see here for details.
