Early Childhood Program
The Early Childhood Program at ZIS is located in two buildings – 3-5 years (Early ZIS, Pre-School and Pre-Kindergarten) in the Early Childhood Center in Kilchberg; and 5-6 years (Kindergarten) in the Lower School in Wädenswil.
Qualified and experienced practitioners nurture the development of the whole child through positive and challenging experiences which are enhanced through:
- Outdoor spaces, including a small forest
- Incorporation of technology into classrooms to enhance learning
- Play-based developmentally appropriate learning experiences
It is always exciting to see young children develop the confidence to manage their own personal needs, take risks and begin to grow into independent learners. At ZIS Early Childhood, this is a daily occurrence.
