Preschool

Language acquisition that begins early, is carefully guided by experts and happens in a natural environment leads to life-long competence.

“The sooner, the better.” When it comes to learning a language, this statement is irrefutable. In preschool, children are at an age when their language is particularly susceptible to outside influences. This is why it is important for them to not only practise the second language, but to also actually use it naturally to engage with the world. As a result, preschool will prove to be a varied and exciting time for both children and parents.

Our bilingual Preschool is a day school that offers a well-supervised, safe and stimulating learning environment for children aged three to six. At our bilingual Preschool, teaching is based on a curriculum, which combines and considers the national Brazilian curriculum as well as the international elements of the IB Primary Years Programme. Our Preschool is the ideal preparation for the transition into the bilingual SIS Primary School.

Bilingual from Day One

The children are supervised by Portuguese- and English-speaking teachers, who use their native languages to communicate with their students. As such, these languages are heard and spoken throughout the whole day, and the children grow up bilingually in a natural way.

Eventful School Days

Regular fieldtrips, games, exercise and movement both indoors and outdoors play an important role at SIS Swiss International School Brasília. Furthermore, the children take part in activities and projects with other classes, and celebrate local and international festivals and traditions.
 

Rooms and Facilities

Our school is located next to the city park in a quite area. The rooms are bright and big, which makes it a very good learning environment. There is a lot of space to play outside, in the playground or in the garden.

Duration

Children can attend our kindergarten for any length of time between one and three years. Children can also be enrolled during the course of the academic year.
