Bilingual Nursery PhorMinis Berlin Mitte

Welcome to the German-English Phorms nursery in Berlin-Mitte.

!!! Our application procedure for years 2022/23 and 2023/24 at our Campus Berlin Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg is now closed.

We are sorry to inform you that further applications for these years are no longer possible.

Our Campus: Three Institutions Under One Roof

Our nursery (day care centre) comprises a crèche and a kindergarten. The nursery is part of the Phorms Campus Berlin Mitte. The premises are shared with the Phorms primary school and secondary school. Here we offer a community in German and English for approximately 800 children and young people from ages 2 to 18.

At present, 35 educators look after approximately 160 girls and boys starting at the age of two in age-homogenous groups. The year before school enrollment, the children attend our age-homogenous reception groups to get accustomed to the school routines.

Founded in 2006

Phorms Berlin gemeinnützige GmbH was founded in 2006 and is located in an attractive red-brick building in central Berlin. This is where we celebrated our 10th birthday in summer 2016. We are thus the oldest and largest of all Phorms schools. 

Bilingual Education

The bilingual teaching concept of Phorms is based on an early acquisition of the English language. Our bilingual German-English nursery school attaches great importance to providing a high degree of support in both German and English. Therefore, the children from two years on are taught by native speakers in German and English using the immersion method

Friends' Association of the Phorms Berlin Nurseries

The implementation of the bilingual concept at the Phorms Berlin nurseries and the very high quality of care at Phorms is ensured exclusively through a Friends' Association ("Förderverein der Phorms-Kindertagesstätten Berlin e.V."). The purpose of the association is to provide the necessary financial means for our care-intensive, bilingual concept as this is not covered by additional state funding. The monthly contributions of the sponsoring members are income-dependent.
