Our teachers will work closely with you to better understand how we can tailor our bilingual classes to your child’s needs and interests.

Group sizes are small, which means more time for pupils to interact with their teachers.


safe, fun and familiar

Our preschool is for children between 1 and 4 years old and is open from 8am to 6.30pm every weekday, all year round, except national holidays. 

It is a safe space, full of fun and familiarity, where we aim to make learning as joyful as possible. We offer a bilingual program in Swedish and French or English and French, which follows the principle of ‘one teacher, one language’. This means each group has two teachers who each speak only their native tongue, helping children to develop both languages.

Based on the Swedish national curriculum, our preschool classes are a balance of learning and play, indoors and outdoors, tailored to the needs of each child. Theme-based activities help the children make connections within and between different topics, and throughout the day they are encouraged to be creative, curious, cooperative and mindful.

Our young students acquire core linguistic and mathematical skills through a mixture of organised activities and free play designed to build their social abilities.

For our youngest children, our main focus is on providing a caring environment where they feel safe and happy, and can naturally start to develop their foundational skills.

We have a dedicated sleep-room where your little one get his or her needed rest.

Your child’s health is also very important to us and all meals are planned with focus on the nutritional value needed for the children.

Every day we also spend time outdoors. This is not only to get fresh air but to help the children develop a sense of space, improve their gross motor skills and learn about the environment around them.

Preschool: 2-3 years

In collective groups and in routine situations the children develop their linguistic and mathematical skills through:

- Learning numbers and counting
- Familiarization with simple notions, such as small-big, similar-different and shapes
- Problem solving such as sharing and dividing
- Learning concepts of time, such as before-after, yesterday-today-tomorrow

- Songs, rhymes, riddles, finger games
- Reading and telling
- Encouragement to speak and express themselves
- Working with simple word pictures, for example their names

In collective groups and in routine situations the children develop their linguistic and mathematical skills through:

- Rhymes, recognition of the sounds of letters, clapping of syllables
- Re-telling of stories
- Making their own stories and texts
- Recognizing letters and connecting letters with sounds.

- Recognizing an image of numbers and connecting this to a number and a figure
- Using more mathematical concepts such as geometrical forms, patterns and symmetries
- Problem solving through mathematical tasks and stories
- Using more concepts of time, such as days of the week, months, and seasons

Through active time and reflective time, we develop an awareness of one’s physical and mental self. Similarly, we strive to connect children with the natural world – observing the seasons and how the outside environment changes throughout the year. We study animals and plants in our immediate environment and familiarize ourselves with the various cycles of life.


At the Swedish School our aim is to create a learning environment that is inspiring and supportive, where pupils take a leading role in their own education. We strive for our Primary pupils to become responsible, social, inquisitive citizens of the world, equipped with the tools to make informed choices.

Our teaching follows the Swedish national curriculum, which we expand upon to ensure pupils can continue their education in a Swiss or International environment.

Our primary school is for children between 4 and 9 years old (primary education begins at age 4 in Switzerland). We are open from 8am to 3pm (12.30pm on Wednesdays) every weekday, with After School activities from 3pm to 6.30pm all year round, except local holidays. During the local holidays, we offer Holiday Camps.

We offer a bilingual program in Swedish and French or English and French, following the principle of ‘one teacher, one language’ where each group has two teachers who each only speak their native tongue, helping children to develop both languages. 

Based on the Swedish curriculum, children can attain the highest academic standards in a relaxed, close-knit school community that fosters empathy for one another and a lifelong love of learning. Pupils will develop skills in languages, art, mathematics, music and social studies through a mixture of organised study and creative play. A typical day will involve circle time, theme-based learning, crafts, music, baking, and time in the forest. We often ‘move the classroom outside’, giving children the opportunity to explore their environment and practise their knowledge.

Our main focus is on developing the skills and character of each child to meet the needs of the Epreuves Cantonales and the Swedish national tests, and to adapt to senior school. 

The curriculum covers the following syllabus areas:
