Spring has sprung!

It seems that now, after the Easter holidays, spring has officially arrived here in Berlin. Although this means a great deal more sunshine, and blossoming leaves and flowers, it also means that the weather has become variable and inconsistent over the course of the day! Please be sure that your children are equipped with a variety of clothing options for their days here in the ELC - we want to be sure that all children will be able to enjoy some fresh air time, regardless of rain or shine. Additionally, it would be a good idea to begin thinking about adding a smear of sunblock to your morning routines.

For: Parents who are new to the IB Primary Years Programme (both in the ELC and Primary School).

During this session, parents will explore what the PYP is, and to a greater extent how it differs from other current and past educational programs.

The session will conclude with time for questions and answers.
