Preschool ProgramThe Preschool program (1 to 5 years) of Dresden International School focuses on the whole child in a supportive, enriching environment where play-based inquiry is facilitated by highly skilled teachers. Our program provides the first part of an internationally-recognised educational framework for young learners, one that has been used successfully all over the world.
The program is based on the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP). These guidelines are in operation in state-sponsored or private international schools and preschools throughout the world. While the PYP Programme beings at age 3, the teachers of younger children also use the PYP framework and principles to inform their teaching.
DIS Preschool offers a full-day program in a bilingual - English and German – environment with an age-appropriate teacher-student ratio. All of our lead teachers have PYP training and draw inspiration from their own inquiry and experiences in the Reggio Emilia schools in Italy.
Open Houses occur twice a year, and we encourage you to come and visit. It is also possible to arrange a private tour by scheduling an appointment. You are welcome to contact our Admissions Officer via email (admissions[at]dresden-is.de) for further planning and any enquiries. Ms Katrin Schreiber is happy to answer your questions at any time.
