Early Years

MR OSHI4021Our Early Years is located in building No 3. Throughout the Pre-School and Pre-Primary classes we follow the general principles of the UK National Curriculum and the IPC (International Primary Curriculum) which promote experiential learning with a play-based approach in a structured thematic environment. In the Early Years we truly believe that the best recipe for success is to ensure that every child is happy and secure.


We bieden onze studenten leeractiviteiten aan in het Engels, Frans en Nederlands.

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

Pre-School is for children aged 2.5 – 4. 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.

Wetenschappelijk onderzoek toont aan dat meertalige opvoeding vanaf jonge leeftijd een gunstige invloed heeft.


Pre-Primary is for children aged 4 – 5. 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.

IPC in Early Years:

IpclogoEarly Years follows the International Primary Curriculum for Early Years. This is an internationally oriented program based on thematic units. The children follow a two-year program, covering four different IPC Units each year such as Sand & Water, All About Me, Bears, Plants & Flowers, Animals, Clothes and Patterns.

Outdoor Learning:
