Our preparatory grade is an excellent bridge between kindergarten and school. It focuses more on learning than typical kindergartens, aiding small children in their transition to school life through a paced and gentle introduction to our challenging school expectations.

Curriculum design

The curriculum design in our preparatory year takes into consideration that children at this age get tired faster and have a relatively higher need for play. It prepares students for the intellectual challenges of further education, focusing on the development of the whole child as an inquirer.
Our Preparatory Grade corresponds to Year 1 of Key Stage 1 in the English National Curriculum.


 = Instruction language is Hungarian
