Trilingual nursery and international kindergarten in Cracow
The child learns the language in a natural way as a mother tongue if “immersed”, “surrounded” by the language, and associating one person with the language.
This is how children learn in our nursery. Children can continue to learn languages in the international kindergarten ITSC.
The original program of trilingualism
In the nursery and pre-school we implement an educational program that we have developed ourselves. The program enables our one-year-olds from nursery through the entire primary school to continue their education according to the standards of six educational programs:
- American Common Core
- British National Curriculum (EYFS-Early Years Foundation Stage)
- Finnish National Curriculum
- French Programme d’Enseignement de l’Ecole Maternelle
- Polish National Curriculum
- IB program (PYP-Primary Years Programme)
Each of the above programs has strengths and weaknesses. Comparing the standards of 6 curricula allowed us to determine the highest educational standards for each subject and for a given age group. We follow these standards.
The curriculum and topics are common to the three languages taught.
Example of the language and daily schedule
The secret of teaching three languages in the nursery and international kindergarten is directly linked to a regular daily routine and taught the curriculum. Have a look at our daily plan and a weekly three languages schedule in our nursery and pre-school in Cracow.
