Overview

Our Saturday Kinderschule will take place in-person for students in Preschool-4th grade to best support their German language development. The registration will ask you about your child's age, current grade level and German language background - please elaborate in detail so we can properly place your child. You will be informed about your child's placement before classes start.  All classes take place Saturdays from 9:15am - 12pm.

Class Details 

The Saturday Preschool welcomes kids who are 3-6 years old. Over the course of the school year, children in Kindergarten will be exposed to a play-based immersion language class that fosters intellectual growth through circle times, songs, nursery rhymes and and age appropriate projects. In addition to improving their German language, children will learn essential social and emotional skills.  

The Saturday Kindergarten/Vorschule welcomes kids who are 5-7 years old. Over the course of the school year, children in Kindergarten will be exposed to a play-based immersion language class that fosters intellectual growth and pre-literacy skills through fun activities and age appropriate projects. In addition to improving their German language, children will learn essential social and emotional skills.  In Kindergarten we are not working with work- or vocabulary sheets.

In the Saturday Elementary School, students from first to 5th grade receive formal instructions in reading and writing in German. Our curriculum is aligned with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and our committed faculty members deliver immersion language classes that foster intellectual growth and reasoning skills through fun activities and age appropriate projects.  Our language school supports our students' social and linguistic needs by offering individualized support for students who learn German as a second language with slower pace, explicit vocabulary learning and lots of repetition.  The Saturday Kinderschule will be working with a textbook called "Die Deutschprofis".
