B.I.S. is particularly proud to offer a Montessori style of education to our pre-school students. You can learn more about this approach, and how we choose to integrate it into the Bogaerts education experience, in the “Philosophy” area of this website. Using this approach, we guarantee your child an engaging, relevant, and open-minded education, which in turn will encourage your child to become a life-long learner.
The Bogaerts Montessori Pre-School is situated on our newly renovated campus, located in Uccle (known locally as Latour de Freins). This campus is home, as of 2017, to the entire Bogaerts education programme, which ranges from our pre-school courses all the way through our IB Diploma and Jury Programmes. This campus boasts a safe and secluded location (the building lays within a wooded park of 62,800 square meters). It contains new furnishings, new construction and additions, and a new playground area (to be finalized in August of 2017).
The chateau itself was erected by architect Henri Maquet in 1890. Its U-shape takes full advantage of available natural light in all parts of the building. The pre-school itself occupies its own wing of this building, and is situated next to both the other primary school classes and has direct and easy access to the playground area, as well as the canteen.
We are also very pleased to offer a nursery/creche service at our sister campus in Waterloo. This service caters to children aged 18 months to 2.5 years old.
