The children’s health, safety and security are of the utmost importance to us at Vienna English Preschool:
All teaching staff receive regular paediatric first aid training
The kindergarten is equipped with fire alarms and performs regular fire drills
The front garden is protected by safety gates
Internal CCTV cameras are located in every classroom
The emotional well-being and development of young children is dependent on them feeling safe and comfortable in their physical environment and forming secure relationships with their caregivers, and we keep these factors at the forefront of our care routine and settling-in process.
Working in partnership with parents
At Vienna English Preschool we are committed to working in close collaboration with parents to provide individualised care and support children’s development and learning so they reach their potential. This is especially important during the crucial settling-in period and regarding children’s physical care needs e.g. sleeping, toilet-training etc. We welcome the opportunity to exchange information and chat informally with parents at the beginning or end of each day.
We keep you informed of your child’s daily activities via the group noticeboards and electronic photo frames. There are many simple ways in which you can contribute to your child’s kindergarten life, for example by bringing in scrap materials for a craft project, lending a storybook from home, or accompanying your child’s group on an excursion. We always welcome your ideas and suggestions for interesting activities and ways to improve your child’s experience in the kindergarten.
Parents are encouraged to make an appointment on Report Day (usually held in April) to discuss their child’s progress with the teachers. Of course, meetings can be arranged when required to discuss particular concerns.
Held in September every year, this is an excellent opportunity to meet the teachers and find out more about the daily routine, the forthcoming programme and “what’s new” for the academic year.
A wide range of external clubs and courses are available to VEP children, including the ever popular Art Club, Drama Class, Dance Workshop and Music Class. Please see the main
During the summer months our teachers organise a fun and exciting programme of indoor and outdoor activities and excursions. In July and the second half of August we also welcome children aged from 18 months to 7 years, who do not usually attend the kindergarten. Please note that this programme does require prior registration and a fee – please contact the director for more information.
