Kindergarten 1 & 2
Children from four years of age can attend either our Playgroup II classes or our Kindergarten 1. Together with the Kindergarten 2, children are led by two English-speaking teachers in the mixed-aged classes. The Kindergarten serves as preparation for the Primary 1 class and is open for children who turn four/ five years old before 31 August.
The children are introduced in a playful way to the independence required for school life and are instructed in German. Besides the German language, additionally, once a week the children attend a morning half in class in the English Kindergarten. We offer English Support and English Enrichment to meet the different needs of the children in English acquisition.
The Kindergarten 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 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 and last but not least, the Summer Night Event. Boredom is completely unheard of in the Kindergarten of the Swiss School in Singapore.
