The Learning Tree Co-operative School offers a range of classes for children aged 2 until 14, for native English speakers and for those who are learning English for the first time.
We have a team of dedicated staff, who teach in their mother tongue, and a welcoming environment with small class sizes.
Our Pre-School program is for children aged 2 to Kindergarten entry and welcomes native English speakers and offers an opportunity for non-English speakers to learn through immersion in the language.
From 2.5 years old, we offer a Swiss German Playgroup where children from all language backgrounds learn through play and pick up the language skills needed for the first years in the Swiss school system.
Once children start school, we have a program of afternoon classes. Explorers is for children in Kindergarten up to 1st Grade, and is taught in English, providing pre-reading and writing skills plus knowledge about the world around us. Most children are native English speakers but those with some English knowledge can join in to.
After Explorers, our native English speakers can move to our Wednesday afternoon Reading & Writing program, offered in 6 levels and offering the opportunity to take Cambridge exams at B1 and B2 level.
For children who have limited or no English knowledge, we have an increasingly popular English as a Second Language (ESL) program. Offered on several afternoons a week, children aged 4 and upwards learn to communicate in English whilst enjoying a fun and motivating atmosphere. We also have Discovering English for children who have some previous English knowledge, but are not at native speaker level.
To complete our offer we also have Lunch Club, giving parents the opportunity for children to spend a full day at the WAC with supervision over the busy lunch time period.
We are able to support you in your decisions about which classes are best for your child, and it is also possible to arrange a free trial class by appointment. Please contact us for more information.
