The KiTs bilingual Dayschool

The essentials in brief

The KiTs - Bilingual Dayschool opened its doors in the summer of 2005. Our dayschool offers support for bright children through a learning environment that is tailored to their individual needs and builds on their strengths. We cater to average to intellectually gifted pupils as well as bilingual children between the ages of 2 and 15 years.

Daily structure
Through the combination of lessons and free time, the school applies hands-on methods. The shared free time over lunch and optional supervised time before/after school offer additional opportunities for developing social learning progresses. The dayschool structure also provides relief for working parents. External children can also join our supervised lunch and/or after school programs upon request and agreement.

Curriculum
KiTs is an approved private school by the Department of Education in the Canton of St. Gallen. We follow the St. Gallen curriculum and provide the same opportunities and qualifications that can be found at other St. Gallen public schools. Changing to a public school or applying to an addition training program is possible with the education achieved at KiTs.

Advancement
The small classroom sizes make it possible to encourage all children individually. Through independent exploration, experimentation and exchange of knowledge, the true potential of each child’s talents begin to unfold. The additional intensive learning lessons are also open for external children.

Bilingualism
Thanks to the German-/English-speaking learning environment, the children absorb a second language, much like they would a mother tongue.

Classes
The lessons take into account the talents, stage of development and needed learning time of the individual child. The curiosity and joy of learning are awakened and their self-confidence is strengthened by the successes experienced.

Parent contact
For the well-being of children, communication between parents and teachers is particularly important. Upon request, parents can also meet with our team to ask questions about their child’s development or to seek counselling.

Identifying giftedness and special needs
Upon request, our team can analyse the level and potential of your child, in order to create the optimal learning environment. Further psychological identifications, such as learning type, are also possible.

Therapies
Bright children are often able to compensate for any deficits so that they are not noticeable for a long time. Unfortunately, such strategies of avoidance can become a problem later in life. If desired, those affected can work with our counselling team so that small weaknesses do not become a stumbling block.

The KiTs day care centre

The care concept

The KiTs Dayschool in Wil SG, offers family-oriented, pedagogically valuable care for your child.

With each child entrusted to us, we promote the development of their individual social, emotional and intellectual needs. The children’s independence is encouraged as we guide them using our concept "We help you to do it yourself". In the playgroup, similar aged children learn to communicate and play with their peers. The regular exchange between parents and educators allows us to provide the best possible support for the child. From 2 years on we offer those interested the opportunity to playfully enter the English language. We also offer many outside activities and excursions, e.g. outings to the nearby forest.
