Qualifications & Experience
About the Mosaic School
Mosaic School, in Geneva, Switzerland, was found in 2004, starting with 40 students aged 3 to 6, and gradually building up to reach 320 students today, with an expansion plan to reach 450 students aged 2,5 to 12 by 2025.
Mosaic is well-respected within the Swiss and international community. In a world where migration – voluntary or imposed – becomes normality, Mosaic school aims at making children aware of the richness of our differences and prepares them from the very beginning oftheir school experience, to develop an in-depth knowledge of their own culture as well as of those they will be in contact with. Mosaic has therefore created an environment where multiculturalism is praised as an asset, taught as a subject, and where understanding and therefore adaptation to an ever-changing world is part of everyday school culture. And if today Mosaic welcomes children until age 12, we are really aiming at tomorrow’s adults.
The real world is a diverse mix of people with a wide range of abilities. At Mosaic, we feel that the sooner we start preparing pupils for this, the better. Mosaic does not undertake to provide for all special educational needs, but in all grades Mosaic can provide for moderate special educational needs under the responsibility of our psychopedagogical coordinator. The benefits include accepting our mutual differences, developing empathy and gaining an appreciation for diversity.
Mosaic School offers a bilingual program based on the Swiss curriculum and the English National Program. In order to allow each child to fully benefit from Mosaic’s bilingual program, the school has set up a compulsory language tutoring program for students from age 6 who will not have spent 3 full school years in a French / English bilingual education.
Amongst the various subject taught, drama is at the forefront: because if learning is also inventing, imagining, listening, getting rid of certainties, and risking new experiences, then theatre is truly an educational tool. Theatre classes promote self confidence and self-esteem: to dare, to risk confronting the look of others, to speak, to improvise in front on an audience, first in a group, then in pairs and finally by themselves.
