Learning support offered

Mosaic is an inclusive school. For children with special needs, there are many benefits to an inclusive learning environment. Regardless of their ability level, children learn from one another. In an inclusive classroom, children with special needs have the opportunity to observe their peers, who serve as positive role models by demonstrating the skills that the teachers and therapists are trying to teach.

Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Mosaic is a private, bilingual school for children from age 2 1/2 to 12 years old.

The mission of the Mosaic School is to contribute to the child’s global development in partnership with and in complement of the family. The school aims to stimulate and facilitate the child’s intellectual learning, artistic aptitudes, relational sensitivities, and emotional richness.
In the long term, Mosaic School will ensure the emergence, the harmonious development and the mastery by each child of his/her competencies.
In the immediate term, Mosaic School aims to stimulate the child’s global vision of life and provide a comprehensive choice of tools to pursue self-fulfilment along with the means to face his/her future social responsibilities.

Teaching approach of the school

The curriculum is bilingual and based on the new PER (applied since 2011 in the canton of Geneva) and on the British national curriculum. Mosaic expects its students to have the same level in English and French at the end of their primary school period. They are not two programmes led jointly but they make up a single
programme which respects the objectives of the Swiss programme, while adding certain specificities of the British programme, in particular those connected to British and world culture.
