Preparatory classes for foreign-language children
Preparatory classes were inaugurated in Wrocław schools in 2019, in response to the need to support parents of foreign-language children coming to Wrocław. The programme was created on the initiative of Wrocław educators in cooperation with the Wrocław Center for Social Development and the Department of Education of the Wrocław City Hall. The offer is addressed to foreign-language children - including children of foreigners and children returning to Poland from emigration.
In the preparatory class, students have more Polish language classes. They learn everyday communication, but also words and expressions in mathematics, science, history and other school subjects. They learn about Polish culture, take part in thematic lessons and integration activities, get to know the city. At the same time, the child does not lose a year, because he follows the core curriculum for his level.
In Wrocław, there are 62 preparatory departments in 24 primary and secondary schools (as of December 2022). Information on enrollment in preparatory classes is provided by the Education Department of the Wrocław City Hall.
