Early Learning | Ages 3-5

As the oldest international school in the region, the International School of Berne (ISBerne) has long provided children with engaging and meaningful learning experiences that form the foundation for academic success. We offer a preschool and Kindergarten programme, which fosters in each child a love of learning and sense of self through an inquiry-based curriculum. We emphasise play and discovery both in- and outdoors, which sparks a sense of wonder and curiosity. 

As an accredited International Baccalaureate® (IB) World School, our early learning programme develops the whole child.  The learning experience in our Early Learning Centre is focused upon providing a safe, nurturing environment in which your child can explore the early stages of the various literacies (reading, writing, mathematical) that will be key to all of their future learning. Our young learners acquire the skills necessary for thriving in Primary School, whether they continue here, in their home country, or abroad.

Our programme is enriched by visits to our Gym and Library, excursions to the nearby woods, playtime in their private playground, and attendance at and active participation in whole school activities and school productions. To learn how IS Berne can benefit your family, please explore the ‘Early Learning Centre in Depth’ section below or contact our admissions team for a personal consultation.
