Kindergarten 1 & 2 (1H/2H)
Children from four years of age can attend either our Playgroup II classes or our Kindergarten 1. The Kindergarten 1 corresponds to the first year (1H) of the Primary Cycle in the Swiss School system. Afterwards the children visit Kindergarten 2 (2H). The whole Kindergarten time serve as preparation for the Primary School.
The children are introduced in a playful way to the independence required for school life and are instructed in French. In addition to the intensive exposure in French, English is integrated into both Kindergarten years with five lessons per week. We offer English Support and English Enrichment to meet the different needs of the children in English acquisition.
The routine includes a weekly swimming lesson, early musical education, exploring our library, physical education as well as the visit of the playground. During the Friendship Morning, children from all Kindergarten classes mingle, experience adventures together and make new friendships.
Highlights of the Kindergarten calendar are the Fun Sports Day, the Deepavali Celebration (Indian Festival of Lights), the Advent Celebration, the Chinese New Year Festivities, the project week with the children of Primary 1/2 (3H/4H) and last but not least, the Summer Night Event. Boredom is completely unheard of in the Kindergarten of the Swiss School in Singapore.
Our FDO takes place in English on Mondays & Fridays and in French on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Attendance on all days is mandatory.
Pupils can use our Lunch Service, which is supervised by SSiS teachers/staff, if they participate in an afternoon activity.
