Early Years mom: ”Even on the weekend, he wants to come to school.”

Shirin is American and works for the UN, her husband is Danish and their son Parsa is 6 and came to Copenhagen International School from a Danish kindergarten where he was since he was three. We asked her how her son transitioned from Danish kindergarten to our kindergarten.

“It was exactly what he needed. He enjoyed playing in Danish kindergarten, but it was clear that he really was more curious about not only literacy and numeracy but also about learning about the world.”

“I can't even describe how amazing it's been. He has enjoyed every single day being there. Even on the weekend, he wanted to come to school. It's just been incredible and he's learnt so much.”

“At the beginning of the year, Rachel told us that by the end of the year our children would be reading. To be honest with you, I really didn't believe it because he couldn't write his name. The way they phrased it at the beginning was, ‘Your child will come home and tell you they played all day, but rest assured: They are actually learning.’ And it could not have been more accurate, they have such a blast. My older child is never-ending telling me it is unfair that he didn't go to kindergarten at CIS.”

“It's been an amazing experience and I would wholeheartedly recommend it. We're half Danish and there have been a number of Danish kids as well and they've introduced Danish into the kindergarten curriculum and we feel like we've also been able to make friends for life.”
