The joy of being in our lovely Nursery

School starts at The International School at 8:30am for Primary pupils and ends at 3:30pm. There is supervised homework, silent study time from 3.30 to 4.30. most pupils are collected between 4.30 and 5pm. There is an after care facility from 5 to 6pm.

Pre-school pupils may arrive at 8:30 am for Action songs and games. Their programme starts at 9:00am and ends at 5:00pm, with three breaks in between. Three-year-old Nursery pupils may attend half days if their parents prefer.

There is a 15-minute break in the morning; an hour for lunch and another 15-minute break in the afternoon. Pupils may bring their own food and drink from home, but at an extra cost a catering firm delivers lunch to the school every day. Lunches that come from home are encouraged to have proper nutritional value. A qualified nutritionist plans every menu for the catering firm. Children who have the catered lunch are provided with crockery and cutlery. If parents send food from home they must also supply the appropriate equipment with which to eat it. All children are expected to sit down, follow the rules for table manners and converse in a proper manner.

In Nursery and Pre-school the focus is on perceptual, physical, and intellectual development. The criteria for choosing our staff are qualifications, experience and love of children.

Nursery children may attend half-days or full days for as many days in the week as their parents prefer. Nursery and Pre-school children are dismissed at 5:00pm and parents may fetch their children at that time. If a Pre-school child has an older sibling at the school, they may both be picked up after 3:30pm. The times are staggered in order to alleviate traffic congestion.

All pupils are insured against accidents.
