We offer a 2-year kindergarten program to prepare children for first grade in Zollikon and Rüschlikon.
Children in kindergarten increasingly look for independence and make huge developmental leaps. For preschoolers, we offer a good balance between loving care and promoting their interests to explore the world. In this way, we cautiously prepare the children for a more structured learning environment.
Our Kindergarten group are the crocos:
The "Crocos" - from 4 to 6 years
We work according to the Zürich educational program as well as the international curriculum so that the children are well-prepared for the transition to first grade in a public or private international school.
no commitment to school vacations (we only close 2 weeks in the summer and one week over Christmas)
All-day care with two time frames (long: 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., short: 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.)
A seamless transition from the KIDSatLAKE day nursery to (pre-) kindergarten

Kindergarten is mandatory in the canton of Zürich and is part of the 11-year school obligation.
The age of the child is what determines the entry or transition to kindergarten.
The cut-off date at KIDSatLAKE is August 31. Children that have completed their fourth year by that date can be enrolled in our kindergarten. What’s essential is your child’s individual developmental stage.
