The ISF Pre-School sets an excellent foundation for a lifetime of learning, catering for children between 2 ½ – 4 years of age.

In Lower Primary, ISF Tervuren focuses on a wide variety of learning activities, and students develop through each stage at their own pace.
As the children develop through each stage, their work becomes more structured, without losing the fun element of learning.
In Upper Primary,students are encouraged to develop at their own pace and challenge themselves and realise their full potential. ISF Tervuren individualises its programs to cater for children with differing abilities and potential.
ISF Tervuren offers the International Primary Curriculum, which is an internationally minded, thematic based curriculum that encourages students to develop the ability to learn and acquire the skills needed to become life-long learners.
