ICCC was founded in 1997 by mothers from the international community. Since then it remains Sofia’s premier international preschool.
There are many things that make ICCC unique. Some of the most important include:
1. Our status of a non-profit, run by a professional Director and a volunteer Board of Parents.
2. Enthusiastic and highly qualified teachers who have earned university degrees in preschool education and have lived abroad in English-speaking countries. They care deeply about their job and the children in their care.
3. A daily schedule that balances play with learning, arts, music and physical education.
4. Specialized UK- and US-based programs that teach positive interpersonal and communication skills, pre-reading and math skills.
5. A wide variety of seasonal activities such as ski school, green school, tennis and football lessons, in addition to our regular twice-weekly karate and dance lessons.
6. The international mix of children that provides a rich cultural environment and helps ensure the use of English as a common language.
7. An embassy-approved safety and security system designed to protect children from various hazards, including earthquakes and fires.
What parents say about us:
Annual parent survey June 2017: What do you like best about ICCC?
”The warm atmosphere. Polite, professional staff, who have an open ear for parents ideas and concerns. Great community within the parents as well.”
”The family feel. The warm teachers. The way the kids interact amongst each other, from age 2 to 6, like brothers and sisters.”
”They respect my child and me. I didn’t like the rules in the polite circle, but I could talk to the teachers, explain my problem and adapted it a little. So I liked how they handle feedback right away! Thank you.”
”I wanted to let you know how happy we are of having our son in ICCC.
Over this year we noticed the great progress that our kid is making in terms of behavior and education, and how much he loves to go and join you guys every day.
Also, the teachers are simply outstanding, and a true example of professionalism in the child care and education industry. I have rarely seen such a group of highly dedicated individuals, with such an amazing skillset and love for their children.
That’s all, we just wanted to make sure to let you know that we really appreciate the hard work and long hours that everyone puts and that many times, just goes unnoticed.”
Keep the great work!

”I want to take a moment to tell you that I love that his class is learning so much about the eclipse. He entertained the whole family at dinner last night telling us all about the “sun collapse!”
Thank you for everything you and your whole staff do everyday. Your school is a highlight of our family’s time here in Bulgaria!!”
