Early Childhood Program

The Early Childhood Program at Zurich International School is for children aged 3 to 5 years (Early ZIS, Pre-School and Pre-Kindergarten) and 5 to 6 years (Kindergarten).

Our Philosopy

We believe 3 to 5 olds are naturally...

  • unique (come with own story)
  • curious (making sense of the world around them and exploring their own ideas
  • co-constructors of knowledge and skills (connecting with others)
  • capable (self-managers, inquirers, problem solvers)

As Early Childhood educators, we...

  • are passionate about children and learning
  • believe in giving time to develop the whole child
  • continue to develop our own expertise in child development
