Our private, bilingual Preschool is open all day. We work in three groups for children aged three to six years. There are no more than 25 children to a group. They are supervised by German- and English-speaking educational staff, who use their native languages to communicate with the children. In this way, German and English are spoken in almost equal measure throughout the day at our Preschool, and the children naturally grow up bilingually. Here, the children receive the ideal preparation for attending SIS's bilingual Primary School.
Areas of Focus
Our work in the preschool at SIS Ingolstadt is based on the state kindergarten curriculum, as well as on the concept developed by SIS, which includes six areas of learning. Imparting early reading and writing skills, playfully encouraging mathematical thinking and hands-on learning through projects are all important aspects of our work with the children. The Penguins and the Turtles, as our two groups are called, go on field trips in the area or explore nature right at our doorstep in our own garden on a regular basis. Our programme is rounded out by play, sports and movement, both indoors and out.
Rooms and Facilities
Our preschool's well-lit and pleasant rooms are located in their own section of our school building. From their group rooms, the children have direct access to the outdoor area, which has been set up with an age-appropriate design.
