The Kindergarten takes a year and serves as preparation for Primary 1. The Kindergarten is open to children who are five years old before August 31.
The language of instruction is German. The children are introduced in a playful way to the independence required for school life. Besides intensive fostering in German and English, basic mathematics are taught. However, play is the core activity.
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 both Kindergarten classes mingle, experience adventures together and make new friendships.
Additionally, once a week the children attend a morning in half classes in the English Kindergarten. We offer English Support and English Enrichment to meet the different needs of the children in English acquisition.
Highlights of Kindergarten calendar are the Sports and Fun day, the Deepavali Celebration (Indian Festival of Lights), the Advent Event, 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 unknown in the Kindergarten of the Swiss School in Singapore.
