Depending on age and group constellation, classes are themed from a range of topics including:
Classes use the following format, work is scaled according to age and ability:
Written language development – colouring in, vocabulary games, phonics games, worksheets, story writing and comprehension activities.
Oral skill development – phonics games, conversation, singing, vocabulary development, character study, speeches
Aural skill development – enjoy a story read aloud, a poem or a theatrical experience
Learning consolidation – theme-based craft, acting out a play, interactive game, singing and movement.
Learning and reading materials are provided.
Some families want homework (eg families moving abroad, preparing for an exam) while for other families a class once a week is enough. A little homework is encouraged, but not compulsory.
A smile and comfortable clothing.
Classes are one hour long.
As activities are scaled according to ability, siblings can join the same class! All children are offered scaled learning opportunities according to their age and ability. For example older children are offered different learning opportunities than their younger siblings and then at different times, for example craft, the class works together and help each other. In this way they benefit from each other.
Group classes cost CHF25/class for the first child and a 10% discount for siblings. Group lessons are billed on a term basis. One-on-one learning costs CHF60/lesson.
