Language plays a key role in our educational concept. As a bilingual, German-English nursery school we attach great importance to promoting a high degree of both German and English.

The children learn the two languages through the immersion method. Each nursery school teacher speaks exclusively in his or her mother tongue of either English or German. This enables the children to learn both languages within a natural context via the morning circle, at meals and through songs, stories and games. Our daily routine supports a natural language acquisition.

We encourage the children to express themselves in both languages but simultaneously exercise a great amount of patience - each child is allowed to progress at his or her own pace.

We provide age-homogeneous groups for children from the age of two. Each group is supervised by two or three members of staff, including at least one German and one English native, depending on the children’s age.
