International Trilingual School of Cracow is a nursery and kindergarten with a strong emphasis on languages—children from one to seven years of age are educated in three languages: French, English, and Polish. At the core of the program is the concept that early multilingualism develops by age three, when children acquire languages naturally. The three languages taught are treated equally—as mother tongues. The school’s program was developed based on an analysis and comparison of six curricula: American, British, French, Finnish, Polish, and the international IB Programme. The International Trilingual School of Cracow, with its 10 years of experience, offers a top-notch education, native language teachers, and a multicultural community.

Academic-based preschools and Kindergartens are the most structured of the different types, and have a strong emphasis on math and reading readiness skills. These programs aim to expose children to what early-elementary school is like. While time is still allotted to free play, much of the day is built around explicit lessons guided by the teacher. Classrooms often resemble play-based ones (with different stations set up around the room), but at an Academic program the teacher leads students through the stations directly, and ties these activities to a whole-class lesson or theme.
A school with a "rigorous" academic culture places a high value on academic performance, and expects their students to do the same. This does not mean the school is uncaring, unsupportive, or non-responsive -- far from it. A school can have a rigorous academic culture and still provide excellent individual support. It does mean, however, the school places a particular emphasis on performance -- seeking the best students and challenging them to the fullest extent -- relative to a normal baseline. High expectations and standards - and a challenging yet rewarding curriculum - are the common themes here. Keep in mind this classification is more relevant for the older grades: few Kindergarten classrooms, for example, would be called "rigorous".
|Learning strategy and study counselling; habit formation|
|Extra support and minor accommodations for children experiencing subclinical difficulties|
Formal adjustments are made to the delivery of lessons to help mitigate the learning difficulty or exceptionality. The underlying content and expectations remain unchanged with accommodations, however. (Example: allowing a student to write tests in a quieter room).
The underlying content and expectations are modified and/or simplified for the sake of the student. (Examples: allowing student to use a calculator on a test when other students can’t; allowing students to bring word-banks or “cheat sheets” into certain tests, etc)
