Yes - you've other options for pre-K.  See here for an outline of the options suggested for the young boy in question.

At the time of writing I didn't know of an International pre-K so I didn't rank it along with the other options.  Having looked into the ISN programme a little since your base post, I would say that I'd place the ISN nursery between the "local maternelle" and the "nourrice" as long as the very hefty fees are not an issue.

Thank you. The only reason I am considering an Int'l School is there is a very likely chance we will only be here 2 years.  Add to that our carte de sejour for Monaco is also taking much longer than anticipated (although we do have the long stay visa) so the local schools will not entertain my admission requests until I have that.  Oh and the fact that they said their enrollment is in February, my options right now seem limited to the Int'l school system although I truly would prefer the local maternelle.  Do I have other options that I don't know about?

"pre-K" - does that mean under 6 years old?

I don't know anything about ISN pre-school (in fact just learned about it on this posting) but if your stay in France is going to be anything more than 2 years and your child is under 6, then the opinion I gave in THIS THREAD and some others elsewhere in the AI discussions remains my clear personal recommendation - i.e. for pre-school, the local French maternelle is hard to beat.

What sort of program does ISN offer for pre-schoolers?
