We love ISCC. We came to Switzerland from the USA when our son was six months old and he is now 1.5 years old. It wasn’t an option for us to NOT put our son in daycare...we wanted him to have that development and socialization. He has learned to walk and talk and feed himself at the school. And he loves to play with his friends. We really like the diversity of different nationalities at ISCC. We like that our son is learning German and English at such a young age. We love the fact that there is one teacher for every two children...we feel like our son gets a lot of attention and love from all of the ISCC teachers. We also like that he is with kids who are up to three years old and we feel like him being with older children has accelerated his development. We have met many of the other parents, who like us, are from different places in the world and we feel we’ve built a little community. I would strongly encourage any family who wants their child to have high-attention and international exposure to join ISCC!

Our daughter was just 5 months old when we joined the ISCC. After all, choosing the right nursery for your child is a highly sensitive topic, and we are more than happy that we have found this place. The ISCC is a well structured childcare center with a highly-qualified and experienced team. A very high staff to children ratio allows them to respond to individual needs the children might have. Our daughter loves spending time there, and we truly believe that she is learning a great deal through the loving and encouraging environment that the carers are creating for her on a daily basis. Communication with the team has always been immaculate - friendly, honest and supportive. They are flexible and open minded, always trying to find the best solution for our child. Last but not least, the ISCC is truly bilingual. Many childcare centers claim that they are, but in reality they are not. This is completely different at the ISCC. We can only recommend the ISCC with its passionate and dedicated team, going the extra mile whenever needed.

Our daughter joined ISCC when she was four months old and since that day, we are more than thrilled to have made that choice. The ISCC provides a caring and secure environment for babies and toddlers. The team is highly-qualified and experienced as well as caring and loving to the children. Each member of staff is deeply committed to the well-being of children and is always attentive to their individual needs. Staff is always open to communication and they are flexible and open-minded. Our daughter loves spending time there and has created strong bonds with other children and members of staff. We also truly believe that she is learning a lot through the loving and encouraging environment and the various activities that she's engaged in on a daily basis. For us, the bilingual offer played a very important part in our choice to enroll our daughter in the ISCC and our expectations are completely met. Thanks to the very high staff to children ratio and loving and caring environment, we know that our daughter is happy and well-taken care of when she is at the ISCC. We can only strongly recommend this childcare.

My kid has been studied here for one year in early years. We love both the teachers and the curriculums here. You will have both English and German teacher and assistance teacher in the class everyday for a small group children, so every kid will be taken good care of. Every teacher is nice, patient and has passion for teaching. The classroom has lots of play and learn stuffs help the kids get knowledge through discovering and playing. Every semester has unique theme and activities about it to extend more. My kid enjoyed school life here. It is really a great school with IB curriculum from PYP to DP!
