Pré Fleuri is an exclusive international boarding school in the Swiss Alps that caters for children from 3 to 12 years of age. Since 1948, Pré Fleuri has been a loving home to many children, giving them the very best in education and sports as well life ethics. Pré Fleuri still upholds a strong tradition of care and education for children from all over the world. Pré Fleuri teaches children to think independently, deeply and creatively, and is fully engaged in the new world society that is being born. Pré Fleuri offers its children the possibility of becoming actors in a world where communication is the basis of all interrelation and evolution.
Pré Fleuri is a traditional wooden chalet, situated in a private park of two hectares, surrounded by pristine woods and traditional farmland.
Our classes are small; our teachers are specialized in personalised tuition. Sports, cultural and other extra-curricula activities complement our children’s experience of living in Switzerland. We also welcome pupils for Winter and Summer camps with intensive language courses.
Pré Fleuri believes in child-centred education, emphasizing the importance of the development of the whole person, as well as in the introduction of a foreign language at an early age. It is with these aims in mind that, at Pre Fleuri, a child is guided and encouraged, step-by-step, towards gaining the self-assurance of being a responsible citizen of the future, positively shaping his own life.
We encourage our students to share their culture and traditions with their classmates. By discovering different codes and customs, they acquire an openness that time will never erode. At Pré Fleuri, learning English and French is assured. Asian students naturally become trilingual. Bilingualism at Pré Fleuri means keeping one’s roots, one’s culture, whilst becoming receptive to differences.
Our academic program follows official English and French curricula; in addition we provide teaching of mother languages such as Chinese, Japanese or Russian. A child has the energy and ability to learn that far exceeds that of an adult who would often feel tired in the same situation.
We believe that young people who graduate from Pré Fleuri are fully equipped to cope not only with challenging secondary education programs but also the demands of a fast changing world.
