On Monday, 16th March 2020, our students started with the Tandem IMS Distance Learning Programme.
EARLY YEARS AND PRE-SCHOOL
Following the authorities of the Canton of Zurich, all our Early Years and Pre-School Groups are currently open (status: 30.03.2020).
AFTER SCHOOL CLUB (ASC)
Our clubs are not running, however, some lessons are being held via Skype. All parents have been contacted about their children's ASC status.
The spring camps have been cancelled but will hopefully take place during the summer holidays.
While a visit to our school is not possible because of the current COVID-19 situation, we are happy to organise a conference call with you and to discuss any questions you may have. Please complete our application form and we will contact you as quickly as possible.

WHAT PARENTS SAY ABOUT OUR SCHOOLS
Tandem was the best choice and the best investment for our child. Tandem makes parents confident that their child is in the best hands. The experience, the education and the engagement level of the teachers is set at the highest standards. And as a bonus, our little son was taught in 2 languages, so that for the Kindergarten he is well prepared and speaks, without any difficulties, German and English on top of Russian. Without any hesitations, our younger little baby was also enrolled at Tandem.

Early Years and Pre-School
We were impressed how quickly Cédric settled in which was also due to the warm and caring atmosphere that welcomed him. Cédric loved to go to Tandem as he found an environment that adapted to his needs and gave him brain food (he is a very curious boy). We felt that the excellent teachers recognize the strengths of each child individually and support children to develop further. During his time at Tandem, Cédric progressed impressively and he always felt very safe and was very eager to go to Tandem.
Cédric and his mum
At Tandem, I really felt that the children were growing their knowledge and improving their language skills in both, English and German. Caspar entered at the age of 4 into kindergarten 1 and stayed for 2 years. He could not speak one word of English and German when he joined, since we speak Italian and Russian at home. When he finished kindergarten 2 at the age of 6, he could communicate very well in both English and German and we were very proud of him.

Mariana thrived in the familiar atmosphere of Tandem. The bilingual education prepared her well for further language study, and the teachers were very professional, committed and caring of my child’s needs. After leaving Tandem, Mariana settled exceptionally well in her new school and was academically well prepared for the new demands. Thank you, Tandem!
