The pros and cons of ISL and La Cote International School

Hi,

We have narrowed down our school search to La Cote and ISL for our 4 and 6 year old. We prefer an international curriculum because we will not be in Switzerland for more than 2 years. So, either school would be ok for us. What I would like to know is which of the two schools invests more time on the social and emotional development of young children? So, a clear emphasis on being kind and respectful towards one another and respect for each childs unqueness. Generally, such children are better behaved. Any clue which of the two schools focuses more on this? I have visited both and they both say that the social and emotional development is important but I believe that the only way to truly determine this is through general feedback from parents and what they observe. Hence my post. Hope someone can help:-)

Your kids are 4 and 6, give them a break maybe, at this age it is not so important, however at this age they will pick up a second language quickly which may be far more use to them than some faceless international school

Actually, our Swiss public school has introduced such a programme (Madame Pacifique) - maybe you can see if either have adopted it or a similar one?
