English for kids in Morges/preverenges/st suplice area

Hi,
We are moving in preverenges. I have 2 kids who were in the British curriculum and I wanted them to keep a good level in english even if they will be in the swiss public school. Is there any school around preverenges, Morges or in general in the Vaub canton. that provides English activities or extra curriculum classes.


Many thanks!!

It is a very nice area for children, lots of green space and playgrounds. Also some businesses that cater to children's activities.

I am unsure about the English extracurricular, are they school or creche age?

There's an EN class in my village, probably a bit far for you but hey, it might be worth checking out.. Maybe it has more branches.

Are you moving to this area because of a job at one of the universities? If so, I would recommend contacting the university 'welcome center' because they will know everything.

Re: English for kids in Morges/preverenges/st suplice area

For swimming, there is a small beach at the lake in Preverenges. Other places close by are AquaSplash at Renens (Renens natation for swimming classes). Try Morges or Prilly or one of the Lausanne pools for classes.



https://www.badi-info.ch/piscines-suisse.html for others in Vaud. Lausanne city website has the list of Lausanne pools.
