We are a growing international school on the edge of Ljubljana surrounded by forest and meadow and yet within easy reach of the centre of town. Our youngest children are 11 months old and our oldest group expands with each passing year. We are proud of our international education delivered in 2 languages, English and Slovene, with German taught from age 3.
We have a warm and welcoming atmosphere which makes children and adults alike feel instantly at home; students feel comfortable in their learning, with their friends and in any of their many and varied experiences whilst being part of our community. We give them the space, support and stimulation to explore and develop and to become a Global Citizen.
We are an exciting new school with the support of an experienced and well trusted international education company, International Education Systems, who have many schools around the world.
Come and join our journey.
Our Nursery caters for children from 11 months to 3 years old and is open between 7.30 and 17.00 all year round, only closed for National Holidays. Nursery is based in their own light and spacious room with access outside.
Our beautiful setting allows us to go for daily walks in the forest and meadows surrounding us, and we also have our own outdoor play area, indoor gym and sleep facilities.
As well as a full range of play and activities in their room, our Preschool children take a full role in our school, contributing to our School Sharing Assembly each week, making things to for our Christmas Bazaar and finding eggs at our Easter Egg Hunt. They have German lessons and use our indoor and outdoor sport facilities.
They get the opportunity to go skiing from the age of 4 years and to join our Glamping trip in the summer!
Our School is accredited in the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme which allows us to create a learning environment that encourages our children to inquire, explore, question, investigate, create, imagine and most importantly have fun!
Our children are encouraged to learn through inquiry and exploration during carefully planned activities and learning opportunities. They experience these through both languages.
We think is important to share our Mission Statement with our community. It means that everyone can see what we are all about. We talked together about our school and developed this statement that we feel sums up our school and the experience our children have during their time with us.
“At Ljubljana International School, our mission is to enable our students to develop international mindedness which will allow them to be effective and active local, national and global citizens.
We focus on each child as an individual, valuing them as a member of our community and supporting their growth in every aspect of learning and developing. We foster their creativity and support their growing independence.
As a community that includes children, families and staff, we hold respect as a vital quality in making our school a wonderful, safe and inspiring place to be. A place where different perspectives are cherished and caring for each other is natural. Our bilingual environment fosters the belief that in our differences, we all have similarities and that striving to communicate allows us to achieve all our other aims.”
