The Parent Teacher Organisation and a number of dedicated parents established a friends association. The aim of this association is to support the educational work of ibsm and IKC by providing additional resources to enrich school life, e.g. through funding for extra equipment and projects, excursions, in-service training or events.
The International Bilingual School Munich has access to a broad range of skills with strong partners in the spheres of childcare and education. In addition to Minihaus München and Kinderhaus München (for special needs education), these include the Arbeitskreis Legasthenie Bayern e.V. (for support with literacy and numeracy). Our International Kids Campus is a strong partner in the educational sphere, too.
The ongoing professional qualification of our staff takes place at our own training facility, the Bildungsakademie Feinschliff: research into the brain and into educational techniques comes up with new information almost daily, making it ever easier for us to understand how a child learns to comprehend its world. For education professionals, this means knowing and structuring these new facts, weighing up which of them it makes sense to include in the developmental process of children and how to achieve this.
Our in-house training academy Feinschliff imparts valuable professional knowledge to our teaching staff at regular intervals – among other areas in early-years education, team-building and leadership skills specifically for social professions. Our lecturers have many years’ experience of teaching and work experience both in their respective fields and in practice, and provide our staff with competent, professional training. Our in-service training provision is developed consistently from practice and adapted to suit the latest knowledge and requirements. You can thus be sure that your child will always be being looked after in accordance with the latest educational methods at the ibsm.
All these facilities have been working on children’s linguistic, intellectual, emotional and social development very successfully for decades.
