The Canadian School of Warsaw, a preschool and elementary school community, is located on three campuses in the Mokotów district. At our school, emphasis is placed on high-quality teaching and learning. Through an innovative curriculum – combining the Polish and International Baccalaureate Organization educational programmes – international pedagogy, cutting-edge resources and qualified, dedicated staff support the learning styles and talents of each student.
Our students are encouraged to explore learning – and develop their talents – through a range of transdisciplinary, cross-curricular learning techniques and a wide range of extracurricular activities, including music, drama, sport, foreign languages, entertaining school events and community service. Our school offers a well-rounded, holistic education, which fosters the growth and development of intelligent, globally conscious and caring citizens.
Through a healthy combination of respect and appreciation, each and every child and their family members are well known and recognized in our school community. Teachers work closely with students, their families and each other to ensure the best possible educational experience. Students and parents in turn contribute to the school’s management, are involved in decision-making processes and provide ideas and initiatives, thereby helping to enrich our school.
Our school is well known for its warm community feel – as well as its strong connection with the community – extensive extracurricular programme, exciting and engaging events, strong moral and ethical awareness and high academic results.
The Canadian Preschool of Warsaw
On January, 6th 2014, we officially became an authorized IB school nr 005004.
The decision to adopt the IB Primary Years Programme at our school was driven by a recognition that it encompasses many of the principles we have long held dear and sought to encourage: a positive attitude to learning and the acquisition of new skills, while developing children’s abilities to ask questions and seek satisfying answers. Likewise, both the International Baccalaureate Organization and our school seek to promote the values of mutual respect, tolerance and understanding toward individuals, groups and cultures in all communities. We deliver the PYP Programme for 3, 4, 5 and 6 year-olds in English only. We teach Mathematics, Science, Language, Arts, Social Studies, Music, Rhythmics, Art, P.E., coding and chess through an inquiry-based approach. In order to give our students a broader choice for their future educational path, in the oldest groups we implement the official Polish Ministry of Education curriculum to prepare our students for passing their School Readiness Diagnosis ( MEN registration number- 398PN). Additionally to develop students’ interests and hobbies we offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities including Karate, Ballet, Dance, Pottery, Piano, Tennis, Acrobatics, Chess, Young Creators Studio, Corrective Gymnastics and Swimming, taking advantage of our unique 580m2 premises, including a large, fully equipped gym, library, Art room and soccer field.
