HOW WE LEARN

Educational Programme

The ISB kindergarten program is a 2 year programme for children aged 3 to 4. We emphasise play based learning in a safe, caring environment, where English is the primary language of communication. With engaging activities and outdoor play, each school day provides opportunities for students to explore and make sense of the world around them.

As ISB is an IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) candidate school, our teachers use inquiry based approaches to guide learning through transdisciplinary units of inquiry.

Our daily programme acknowledges that each child is unique. Learning experiences are planned and differentiated to meet the needs and interests of individual students. Through purposeful play, both child-initiated and teacher guided, children are encouraged to be natural inquirers.. In all activities, the following elements are present:

Thematic Plans

Kindergarten students participate in four exciting transdisciplinary units that aid students in building foundational knowledge, skills and understandings. Our three and four year olds explore the following transdisciplinary themes:

Sharing Achievements

Throughout the year, the learning journey of each child is regularly shared with families in a variety of ways. Teachers talk to each family on a daily basis to reflect on learning experiences and build positive relationships between home and school. Furthermore, we present progress and growth through our online student portfolio, a personalized collection of kindergarten memories. Parents have consistent access to their child´s learning. Four times a year, children proudly share their learning with parents during summative shares and parent-student-teacher meetings. In addition, written progress reports are sent home twice a year.

Compared to Chinese exam- oriented education, Wenjie likes ISB more. The assignments in China are more transcribed to strengthen memory, here we pay attention more to the development of competence.

My two boys started school at ISB in September 2015. One in grade 1 and the other in grade 3. (Both are not native English speakers.) I (as a mom) found sending them to school for the first day really scary. New country, new city, new school and even a new Language. They came home happy and just after a couple of weeks the boys started to speak English and they were really beginning to feel at home in school. The Staff, teachers and other parents have been a great help with adjusting not only to school life, but also to life in Brno in general. The atmosphere in school is really welcoming and warm. There is always a listening ear.
Also the PTA has been a great help, connecting with other parents and really feeling part of the ISB community.
So far it has been a great experience for us!

I am writing this review of the International School of Brno on Čejkovická street with great love. My son attended this school from grade 1 to grade 3. Unfortunately I had to move with my son to the States due to work reasons. We miss ISB a lot in the States and already are planning return to the Czech Republic.
