A webinar-style virtual presentation will introduce interested parents to the ICS Preschool & Kindergarten Centre on Friday 11 June.
Following a very successful Open House for interested parents in April, and before this school year ends, we are delighted to invite parents of children aged 18 months to 6 years to join us at our next virtual Preschool and Kindergarten Open House on Friday 11 June.
In two morning sessions, from 08:30-10:00 and 10:30-12:00, parents will learn more about the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme. They will be able to view our well-appointed classrooms and learning spaces and discover how collaborative and shared projects help our children develop positive relationships with classmates, under the gentle guidance of our internationally qualified teachers and teaching assistants.
The final Preschool and Kindergarten Virtual Open House of this school year will also provide parents with information about our bilingual (English/German) strand. ICS children respond with great enthusiasm to the bilingual classroom environment, using a second language when responding to prompts or as part of their learning inquiries.
ICS Preschool and Kindergarten children have access to two courtyards just outside their classrooms, and parents will learn how our young inquirers and discoverers regularly benefit from excursions with their teachers to our on-campus pond and Research Garden. The children also spend one morning a week in the forest, exploring the natural environment throughout the seasons. The ICS Waldkinder, or forest learning programme, is integrated into the children's units of inquiry, offering them hands-on learning activities and adventures which provide a real-world connection between their classrooms and the forest that surrounds the ICS campus.
Following the virtual presentation, parents will have an opportunity to discuss their child's needs with our Primary Principal and Deputy Principal and have their questions answered. We warmly invite interested families to join us on 11 June and look forward to welcoming you to the ICS Preschool & Kindergarten Centre's Virtual Open House.
