Learning another language is second nature to a three-year old. Preschool and Kindergarten classes are conducted entirely in German, with English being used only when a child is confused, or for comfort when necessary. Preschoolers may begin the program at age three and do not need any prior foreign language.
All of our preschool and Kindergarten teachers are certified as early childhood educators (in Germany and/or the US) and have native fluency in German. Aside from being great instructors, they are well versed in early childhood development. Their caring, nurturing approach brings out the best in young children.
In the preschool setting, we introduce our three- and four-year olds to the German language through a variety of multi-sensory activities:
Children may attend the half-day or full-day program, four or five days a week. We recommend the five-day program to give children the greatest immersion potential.
Preschoolers and Kindergarteners who stay for the entire day have a rest period or nap after lunch. The day officially ends at 2:50 p.m., Fridays at 2:00 p.m.
