INTERNATIONAL & PRIVATE SCHOOLS

Choosing which education system your child will have is, for many parents, the decision, with other elements taking second place.  Here are some of the private options available in the Zug area.  All have German tuition (although this will depend on your child's age - be sure to ask) and some are bilingual, so children are immersed in the German language.  

FOUR-FOREST SCHOOL

This is a bilingual school, for children aged between 3 and 12 years, with sites in Zug and Luzern.   Preschool and Kindergarten (English Reception and Year 1) have access to teachers of both languages at all times.  For the older years, language is rotated weekly.  The primary school includes a Forest School programme.
