Early Childhood 3-5 year olds
The Early Childhood programme immerses children into an exceptional English setting with daily French activities. The programme encourages children to explore its principles of respect, responsibility, and community. The result is an atmosphere of collaboration where children learn while playing in a welcoming, positive, and safe environment.
Informed by the Primary Years Programme teaching methodology
Relationships are key. Children learn through student-centred, hands-on experiences in this innovative pedagogy by IB PYP. The philosophy is based on laughter, play, music, and open-air activities which stimulate a child’s natural curiosity.
A building designed for children’s well-being
Our building is spread over three floors and will immediately make you feel at home. The top floor is reserved for group activities and has a kitchen adapted for the safety and enjoyment of even our youngest children. Our rooms are spacious and full of light. Additionally, each classroom opens up to an outdoor play area.
A team of passionate, caring teachers
Our dedicated team has been working at ISL for several years and are all specialised in children’s well-being. They will tell you about your child’s activities daily at pickup time, and you will receive a weekly personalised report.
“We were worried that our son would not be able to follow in English. However, within a few months, he became better at English than the both of us, who have studied English for years and years. He is perfectly integrated!”François P., Father of Max
