Minerva School Basel - Kindergarten

The year group terms refer to the new Swiss system comprising 11 years including 2 years of Kindergarten. Year 7 refers to UK year 5 and US Grade 5 approximately.

Children from the age of three can attend the Kindergarten at Minerva School Basel. The regular Kindergarten programme begins at 8:30am each day. However, children may be dropped off any time between 7:30 and 8:30am. The class size at the Minerva Kindergarten is generally no larger than fifteen children. Two staff members (a Kindergarten teacher and an intern) accompany the pupils through the entire day.
This easily manageable class size creates a nurturing atmosphere with individual support. As a private school with such a nurturing environment, it is easier to address the strengths and wishes of each individual student.

In addition to the regular curriculum, the Minerva Kindergarten spends one day per week in a nearby forest. This is possible in all weather conditions.
A holistic approach to learning is a particular goal of our dance and music lessons.
