PlayPen Bilingual Education is an independent school based in São Paulo for students aged 1-14 years and a pioneer in bilingual teaching. It was the first bilingual school in Brazil and has over 30 years’ experience in the field, providing education from Toddlers I to Fundamental II.

PlayPen Bilingual Education offers full English immersion for children up to the age of 4, followed by an outstanding pedagogical curriculum in both languages in other years. Expatriates comprise eight percent of the school’s faculty, which contributes to a multicultural atmosphere. The school also provides a wide array of international and exchange programmes through cultural and academic trips to and from Chile, Canada, Germany, the UK and Spain. Our ethos encourages shared responsibility in the educational process and offers an enriched bilingual environment that is culturally and academically stimulating. We promote critical and reflective thinking and encourage attitudes of sensitivity and working together as key to being responsible citizens within the wider world.

In the five years to 2014, students progressed to the top five top high schools in Brazil: 55% of students were accepted at Santo Américo, 25% at Móbile, 10% at Bandeirantes, 5% at Vera Cruz and 5% at other leading high schools.
