Sønderborg International School manages an international Kindergarten in the local municipal Kindergarten Engelshøj. SIS Kindergarten was founded in 2016 as a joint private-public partnership with Sønderborg Kommune. This decision followed the identification of a need to serve both the international and internationally minded community within the local area. Initially there were ten places but due to high demand there are now twenty-five places, which are in high demand.
Our international kindergarten is well respected and takes children between the ages of 3 to 6 years and is age integrated. It is staffed by four Pedagogues.
Our Kindergarten Program
The SIS Kindergarten is for children from a variety of backgrounds. Currently we have children registered at the kindergarten from both the Danish community and wider international community.
Some children speak English fluently while others join us without any English language skills. Students are supported to develop their language skills amongst other skills regardless of their age or entry level abilities. All children in the Kindergarten receive a foundation in both literacy and numeracy skills.
Play is at the heart of the child’s development in our kindergarten. Children are encouraged and given time to interact socially through play. It is this play that regularly forges wonderful friendships with children who are ‘not just like them’ and introduces our children to the wider world and the opportunities and friendships this offers.
