We are a private, English-speaking kindergarten providing first class care and education for children aged between 18 months and 6 years of age.
Founded in 2004, Vienna English Preschool has long been at the forefront of early years education in Vienna and has built a strong reputation for the quality of its English language programme, delivered by our experienced and highly qualified team of native-English speaking staff.
We are proudly multicultural and international in our outlook. Our pupils and their families represent a wide range of nationalities and we value the richness and variety this diversity brings to our learning environment.
Excellence in English
Vienna English Preschool is the first choice of many parents due to the high standard of English spoken by all teaching staff in our kindergarten.
English is the main language used with the children throughout the day. In every class the programme of play and learning activities is delivered by a team of two or three native English-speaking teachers and assistants.
We place a strong emphasis on developing children’s English language skills through daily story-times, songs and rhymes, as well as Circle Time discussions and games devised to broaden the children’s vocabulary and improve their confidence and communication skills.
Although we princially offer a full immersion English programme at the VEP, German lessons habe been incorporated into the curriculum to provide our non- German speaking children some exposure to the language of the country they are currently living in.
This is in accordance with Austrian legislation.
Alex, our native German speaker, who is also one of the blue group teachers, delivers short lessons on a weekly basis desgined to teach children basic Geman skills through a range of activities including interactive stories and action songs, rhymes and role play.
