The German Kindergarten

St. Faith's Community Centre
At the German Kindergarten we believe that learning should be a natural part of life. We strive to create an environment where children enjoy themselves and learn in a playful way. We strongly believe in learning through play close to nature. We promote bilingualism from early childhood. Before the age of seven is when two languages are most easily learned. The German Kindergarten staff are native German speakers. We emphasise storytelling and reading as a way to immerse the children in a German speaking environment. The German Kindergarten is a very popular pre-school. The waiting list operates on a first come, first served basis. However siblings and children in care will have priority. Visit our website to find the Fee Table for more information on prices. Website
