Welcome to Sofia’s First Fully English Speaking International Kindergarten
The International Children’s Creativity Center (ICCC) Sofia is an English pre-school for children from 20 months to 6 years. We offer half-time and full-time care throughout the year.
ICCC has a truly international community with children from many cultures, nationalities and languages. At ICCC we speak only in English and children who are not native speakers acquire the language naturally as part of their pre-school journey.
ICCC was set up 25 years ago, in 1997, by parents from the international community. Since then it remains the premier international English pre-school in Sofia and is the first choice for many expat and local families. The school is governed by a Board of Parents and has a not-for-profit status.
Quality learning experience
Preschool-age children learn best in environments where they can have secure relationships with caring and responsive adults, where they feel safe and free to explore and learn about the world.
We respect each child’s pace of learning and character. We believe that children are competent from an early age and should be encouraged to be independent and take initiative in their own learning. We empower children to make decisions, solve problems and develop critical thinking skills. We support children to grow a curious mind and a life-long love for learning.
At ICCC we make learning exciting and fun. In our teaching we are guided by our core curriculum The International Early Years Curriculum, supplemented by special literacy programs like Jolly Phonics and Abacus, science classes, arts and sports activities. We spend time to walk in nature and explore the natural world.
With a rich mix of cultures, languages and nationalities at school, we encourage children to respect each other and value differences and become responsible citizens.
