Early Years

MR OSHI1438Our Early Years is located in Van Dyck Villa. Throughout the Pre-School and Pre-Primary classes, we follow the UK National Curriculum and the IPC (International Primary Curriculum), which promote experiential learning with a play-based approach in a structured thematic environment. We truly believe that the best recipe for success is to ensure that every child is happy and secure in the Early Years.


Pre-School - ISF offers lessons in English, French & Dutch.

Pre-School is for children aged 2.5 to 4 years. In Pre-School, the emphasis is on active learning through an exciting range of opportunities and experiences in free-flowing, stimulating indoor and outdoor environments. In our Pre-School, parents also have the opportunity to expose their children to a range of learning activities in English, French, and Dutch, helping to develop bilingual children from an early age.

Pre-Primary is for children aged 4 to 5 years. In Pre-Primary, we use an inquiry-based, fun approach to learning, encouraging each child to become an independent thinker in a well-structured and creative environment.
