Early Education (Nursery)

Early Education is designed to:

  • prepare children for a happy, healthy, responsible and successful life;
  • develop children’s personality and abilities;
  • support children’s learning potential;
  • develop respect for others and the environment;
  • teach children to respect and appreciate children’s own cultural and social identity, its values and those of others;
  • promote a European spirit.

The primary cycle covers five years. In the primary school, the focus is on developing the mother tongue, mathematics and the first foreign language, but art, music, physical education, discovery of the world and religion/ethics are equally important - as are the “European Hours”, where mixed nationality groups meet for a variety of activities.

The portfolio in nursery and primary school

The holistic approach chosen in the "Early Education" curriculum requires a method of assessment which adequately reflects the children’s achievements in their school career, namely the portfolio. It is constructed by the children.

The portfolio is composed of three components, which represent the 4 parts of the “Early Education” programme: a biography, a relevant and integrated collection of the pupil’s work showing the state of achievement of competences and progress made; a passport(a self-evaluation sheet in which the child can tick his/ her successful points or any other simple tool that allows the child to record his/her achievements)

The portfolio may include a variety of visual and audio documents: texts, drawings, comments, symbols, diagrams, photos, videos, sound recordings, interviews, results, etc.


Social psychological support service and networks

In our school, we have a psychosocial advisory and counselling service.

Die Berufsorientierung unterstützt die Schüler bei allen Fragen zur Berufs-, Ausbildungs- und Studienwahl.

Parents are cordially invited to exchange views on their children’s development with the teacher in an informal setting. This “Coffee @ LESC” takes place on the first Monday of each month from 7.30 a.m. – 9.30 a.m.

A group of expert-students is at the students’ disposal to help them use their iPads more effectively and efficently for academic purposes every Tuesday and Friday from 11.45 a.m. – 1.10 p.m.

A makerspace is a collaborative work space facility for making, learning, exploring and sharing that uses high tech to no tech tools.
