Since children are very perceptive it is beneficial for them to learn a foreign language at a young age. The learning process is supported by your child’s play instinct: Repitition and Excersise are presented in a form appropriate for children and therefore it is more like playing than having lessons.
Young children are open minded and we lay the foundation for understanding and respecting foreign cultures.
Interactive French and English
We use language immersion to teach your children both English and French. The goal of this method is a bilingual education of your children.
We use the “One Teacher-One Language” system, i.e. in each group there is a French-/English- speaking teacher as well as a German-speaking teacher, who speak only their own native languages.
This method can be compared to learning a language in a bilingual family. Additionally there are bilingual activities twice a week, in which your children work on a specific topic, and then playfully learn the corresponding vocabulary in both languages.
In a playful way, we teach your children how to sing, to properly pronounce words, to make music, to dance and to distinguish different kinds of musical instruments.
In the process of early musical education we provide your children with a profound educational background in music; with this background your chldren will be able to begin a proper musical training and to learn to play an instrument.
In addition to that it improves your children’s motor and cognitive skills, which are also very useful in other areas of life.

Your children’s needs are our highest priority. The development of your children is supported by daily activities apropriate for their age. Children get to know each other and learn how to socialise, thus acquiring social skills and emotional competence.
Breakfast and snacks may be provided either by you or us. We serve beverages and a warm lunch suitable for children. If your children have to keep a special diet we will see to it.
