The Group, ELFS, The Early Learning Friends, was set up in April 1998 by a group of Kindergarten and Preschool teachers from some of the main International Schools in Switzerland who recognized the need for regular job alike sessions amongst professional Early learning teachers.

Its aim originally was to give Early Learning teachers the opportunity to visit each others schools and to share ideas on various aspects of Early Learning education.

Over the years, the group has grown to include many small and larger international schools in Switzerland and, with this expansion the desire for workshops led by professionals in the field as well continued job alike sessions has grown.

The Group meets two to three times a year, varying the meeting place each time. We are a non profit making organization.

If your school is interested in joining ELFS, or if you are interested in being sent more details, please let me know.
