The Children's House

The Children's House is an international school for children from the age of 18 months through to six. The school is based upon a philosophy which recognizes the uniqueness of each child and the importance of the early years in developing the child's positive self-image, establishing social relationships, building concept information, improving language skills, and encouraging creativity. The school believes that children learn by being involved in the learning process and by exploring the world around them with teachers who are sensitive to their needs. At present there are 137 children in the school representing several nationalities, and there are eleven classes.

The school hours are: Pre-Toddlers: Tuesday, Friday 09: 45-12: 45 - Pre-Toddlers: Monday, Wednesday 09: 45-12: 45; Toddlers: Tuesday, Thursday 09: 00-12: 00, or 12: 30-15: 30 or Monday/Wednesday/Friday. Pre School: three-year-olds, Monday, Wednesday, Friday (optional Tuesday and Thursday) - 09: 15-13: 15. Pre-Kindergarten: four-year-olds, five days a week 09: 30-13: 30. Kindergarten/Primary One: five and six year-olds, five days a week, 09: 30-14: 30. Norwegian: five days a week, 09: 15-13: 30 (This class is taught in Norwegian and is open for all children).

The size of the school and classes allows the staff to give each child the individual attention and one-to-one relationship important to the child in its formative years, and allows the children to develop through their own individuality and pace. The children and parents are given the opportunity to learn more about different languages and cultures and there is a great deal of interaction between the families attending the school.

The school incorporates the various international programmes so that the children are prepared for and can integrate into local or international schools.
