EDUCATIONAL
VISION

Kindergarten functions according to an educational model, not caring-for/ baby-sitting model. It represents a phase of early learning that will allow students to build solid foundations that will expand into primary education and provide them a foundation of becoming trilingual students.

The kindergarten curriculum is defined by the Ministry of Education of France as preparation for primary school where is learnt to “become a student” and to develop and structure language (oral language in priority, but also an introduction of written expression, in order to think about the world and start with the analysis of language). Kindergarten is accredited and is under pedagogical responsibility of the French inspectorate of the Southeast Europe – which provides supervision over the implementation of curriculum and generally over the quality of our kindergarten/school.

Kindergarten welcomes children from 1 and a half years old.

If required, diapers weaning can take place in the kindergarten.

Children who speak and do not speak French can enrol any group in the kindergarten.
