'Share, care and be fair'

The COLE schools began in 1989 when Rosie Ladner-Cole opened ‘COLE English Playgroups’ in her Innsbruck home. Originally aimed at Austrian children aged 3 to 6 it soon attracted children from all over the world whose families were living near and around the vicinity. Afternoon English courses for children aged 6 to 10 were soon introduced and ‘COLE English Playgroups’ became ‘COLE English Centre for Kids’. 

Over the years the centre grew, and with it the building in Innsbruck. The Pre-school and Primary School then originally moved into a building outside of Innsbruck. After the school board unexpectedly changed hands 6 months later disparities quickly arose and the board members' attitudes were sadly found by us to no longer be compatible with the philosophy, work ethics and morals as set out by COLE International Schools licensor who could no longer justify a cooperation. All ties were severed. For more information on what is happening now please phone the licensor.

In 2015 the name and trademark for any and all COLE education projects of all types became 'COLE International Schools' and resumed under licence. Licensor: Rosemarie E. Ladner-Cole, MA. Contact: admin@cole.at

‘My aim has always been to channel children’s natural curiosity into a positive learning experience – to encourage academic learning in all subjects as well as promote tolerance, empathy, morality and good manners.’ R.E. Ladner-Cole, MA  (1989)
