The Alpha method: the art of learning to read and write from age 4

The Alpha method - The Alpha method

Collège Champittet is proud to be one of the schools where early literacy is part of the curriculum. We start teaching children to read and write at the age of four, unlike, for example, Swiss state schools, where reading and writing start at the age of six.

Children are introduced to the magical world of letters through the Alphas system, a phonetic method that follows the exciting adventures of charming characters, known as Alphas. Each day, the children discover the Alphas that represent the letters of the alphabet through a captivating tale. An effective and fun way to learn to read.
