At ISCS-The British School of Zug, we support children in their transition in their first school years and ensure learning is a positive experience by:

  1. Providing caring and supportive environments
  2. Nurturing health and emotional wellbeing
  3. Establishing positive learning habits
  4. Developing autonomy and independence
  5. Delivering age-appropriate high-quality experiences

We deliver a balance of adult led teaching and spontaneous learning. As well as the direct teaching of key skills, children have opportunities to learn through exploration, with teachers supporting them and extending their learning. Our specialist Early Years teachers provide opportunities for children to work in small groups and develop key early learning skills in reading, writing and mathematics in a fun, age-appropriate way. This ensures children achieve well in these areas later in their school life.


There are 7 areas of learning in Early years;

3 prime areas which run through all aspects of the curriculum :

  • Communication and language
  • Physical development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Other areas are;

  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design
  • Maths
  • Literacy

They have a daily phonics session which helps them to learn the individual sounds in the alphabet which will support them as they begin to read.

Yes you will need to provide 2 snacks per day for your child, they are encouraged to eat their healthy snack in the morning.

Everyday the children have outdoor time on the playground or sometimes in the forest to develop their curiosity skills as well as gross motor skills. There's also so many opportunities for them to develop their knowledge about the world in the outdoor area.
