    Program Early Years (Kindergarten)

  • Age: from 2 to 4 years
  • Standard: IB Program (IB Primary Years Program)
  • The daily form of training.
  • The International School of Monza acts as a full-cycle educational institution and provides training programs for the youngest children from 2 to 4 years old. Children of 2 years of age undergo special adaptation, then the program of kindergarten and preparation for school begins - the study is divided into three stages:

  • Prekindergarden (Age: 2 years)
  • Kindergarden (3 years)
  • Transition (4 years).
  • The curriculum of the kindergarten is built on the basis of the IB Primary Years Program, with included parts from the Italian educational system. Children are divided into groups - the number of people in the group is small, and this allows teachers to give maximum attention to each child and listen to his needs. A distinctive feature of the school is that children here are perceived as independent members of society with their own characteristics and needs. Pupils are in an exceptionally friendly, "family" atmosphere and at the same time get used to acting independently and meaningfully, to take responsibility for their actions. Features of training include:

  • Development of knowledge about the surrounding world through expressive, creative, verbal and mathematical languages
  • Creating a connection between mathematics, science, digital technologies and art
  • Full immersion program (English).
  • The educational system is built on 5 main points, the interrelations of which help to better understand and assimilate the material:

  • Action
  • Attitudes
  • Key Concepts
  • Knowledge
  • Skills (skills).
  • At an early age, the child's basic ideas about the world and his place in it are formed, this period is extremely important for the whole future process of learning and life. That is why the kindergarten is designed in such a way as to build clear and continuous links through the "child-parents-teachers" that helps them to exchange data and opinions, adjust the curriculum and take into account all the desires, needs and preferences of the student. An important part is close interaction with the environment: children have the opportunity to get close acquainted with animals and flora, understand the importance and responsibility of a person for their activities, the need for a drastic change in consumption. On living examples - whether it be a garden or a park, trees or other plants - children learn how fragile and dependent the nature is, how important it is to be its protector, not the destroyer.

    Special mention also deserves the system of language development: from the very moment of admission to kindergarten with children, professional English-speaking teachers work, which in an easy way give basic principles of linguistics and develop skills of live communication. As the child develops and grows, the pace of exercise increases, and they become more severe. As a result of professional work, children learn the language at a sufficiently high level and can easily go to primary school. For children from Italy and all comers, Italian lessons are also taught. Foreign participants receive support to adapt to the lifestyle and rules of conduct.

    Due to the high quality of the educational standards of the IB Primary Years Program and their successful implementation, the kindergarten pupils receive the proper level of development and knowledge easily pass to the next level of education.
