Kindergarten (3- und 4-jährige)

Preschool

We believe in educating the whole child.

Our preschool program is designed for children to play, explore, and discover in a safe, nurturing, hands-on environment. Our curriculum is built on an inquiry-based framework where the children expand on past experiences and explore areas of interest.  

Language Learning in Preschool

Learning a language is second nature to three and four-year olds. Preschool classes are conducted entirely in German, with English being used when a child is confused or for comfort when necessary. Preschoolers may begin the program at age three or four and do not need any prior German language knowledge.

The Preschool Program at GIS builds on:

IB Primary Years Programme

Introducing Children to the German Language

In the preschool setting we introduce our children to the German language through a variety  of multi-sensory activities. For example:

  • Expressive art and music, simple stories, and rhythmic games based on seasonal themes provide a gentle structure to the preschooler’s day.
  • Preschoolers develop problem solving, choice building, and fine and gross motor skills in an experiential environment.
  • Children enjoy healthy social interactions: sharing, making friends, learning empathy for others, and practicing to be courteous and friends.
