Kleinkindgruppe 幼儿班

We believe in providing our youngest students with a joyful and enriching experience.

The beginning of an exciting and enriching educational journey

GIS is excited to offer the Twos Program, a first school experience designed to spark curiosity and meet the developmental needs of growing two year olds.

Our program balances structured activities and free play, encouraging children to have fun while learning, making discoveries for themselves and developing their fine motor skills. As an IB World School, the program also features activities such as cooking, gardening, music and crafts to foster observation skills, curiosity, and creativity.

Our goal at GIS is to build positive, trusting relationships with every child in our care. Fundamental skills such as washing hands, unpacking lunches, putting on and removing coats, and taking care of one’s possessions prepare children for preschool the following year. 

Planting the seeds of multilingualism

At GIS daily exposure to German or Chinese (depending on the track) and English through stories, songs, and immersion-style instruction builds confidence and communication skills, preparing them for transitioning to our immersion language program. 

Frequently asked questions about Twos


Your child does not have to be toilet trained before starting the Twos program. We work with our two year olds daily to help achieve success with toilet training. To help facilitate toilet training goals, each classroom also has its own private bathroom. 

Parents provide disposable diapers, wipes, and three changes of clothing.
