OUR DAY KINDERGARTEN

The recognised KiddiesCare-Kiga in Au comprises the 1st and 2nd Kindergarten level and is governed by the rules and regulations of the Elementary School Act. The classes are taught by a qualified Kindergarten teacher according to the curriculum of the Canton of Zurich. Tuition is in German and specific lessons are in English. The multi-lingual education follows the principle of “one person - one language”, thus making the transition from one to the other language of instruction clear and understandable.

Participation on 3 school days is mandatory: Tuesday – Thursday: 08:30 – 17:00

KiddiesCare-Kiga is at a safe and central location. It has a child-friendly infrastructure and several parking lots. The large garden facilitates a wide variety of games and exercises and is integrated into the daily routine. Advantage is also taken of the rural setting and proximity to the Au peninsula and Lake Zürich.

CURRICULUM

The KiddiesCare Kiga-Curriculum provides a guideline for the promotion of education and development.

Firstly, it meets the objectives of the cantonal curriculum; on the other hand it reflects with appropriate individual differentiation the respective KiddiesCare curricula.

The educational efforts aim at promoting knowledge, ability, creativity and versatility in the context of the curriculum. The various topics and their duration are set by the teachers; the content and the specific objectives arise from the analysis of the situation and are developed jointly with the children to meet their needs and interests.

The planning is done not only for the children, but together with the children. The children have the opportunity to be involved in decision-making and educational processes. They contribute ideas and implement them. Thus, they experience appreciation and acceptance and develop self-confidence, responsibility and independence.
