Which course does my child need? 

Children are assigned to our courses according to their age and Swiss school grade. Please register your child for a course aimed at the age group and school grade which they will be in when the course starts. If you are unsure, please contact us for advice.

* Children entering primary grade 3 should ideally attend an 8+ course. However, since 8+ courses are not currently available in all locations, we have modified the structure of our 6+ courses so as to smoothly accommodate children in grade 3 there. We will be offering more 8+ courses as time goes on and student numbers increase.


Calendar of sessions

The schedule of classes for the 2016-2017 school year is as follows. Please note that individual classes may be affected by closure of schools on certain days for teacher training and the like. You will be informed separately of any such days that impact upon the course you have booked. Any sessions that we are unable to run for such reasons will be made up at the end of the semester.
