Preschool-12 Bilingual Education in
Two Locations in the Bay Area

Kindergarten Camp MV: Age 5 - 6


Our Vorschule Camp is just for Kindergarteners. In a group of 12 kids with one camp instructor, or a group of 15 kids with two camp instructors we begin to focus on the building blocks of academic German language learning.

Following German pedagogy for children who are preparing to enter school, our program blends crafts, imaginative play, outdoor time, music and movement, and early academic learning.

The instructors speak in German only, but will respond to both spoken English and German. Children from all language levels are welcome--from total beginner to native speaker.

We hope that your child will enjoy their group experience, learn a lot about the German language, be proud of what they accomplish, and meet many new friends.

Registration opens:
