Early Years

Our Early Years program begins with Preschool (for children who are three years old by September 1), continues with Pre-Kindergarten (for four-year-olds), and concludes with Kindergarten. All Early Years programs are French Immersion or Spanish Immersion.


  • Children of all language backgrounds comprise our Early Years cohort.
  • Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten students investigate four PYP Units of Inquiry during the year.
  • The Units alternate so a child who is at WIS for both Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten will not study the same Unit twice.
  • The program for Preschool is developmentally adjusted, recognizing students may require extra rest or additional time to adapt to an immersion classroom.

The program is structured as follows: one French and one Spanish classroom of Preschool; one French and one Spanish classroom of Pre-Kindergarten; two French and two Spanish classrooms of Kindergarten.
