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

Preschool Camp SF: Age 3-5

>>> Location: 117 Diamond Street, San Francisco


For preschoolers, we offer a loving play group with two GISSV Kibili instructors and max. 15 children. Due to new SF regulations Camps must run 3 weeks.

Following German early childhood pedagogy, our program blends crafts, imaginative play, outdoor time, music and movement, and time for children to explore their own interests.

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 German time, learn lots of new songs and stories, be proud of what they accomplish, and meet many new friends.

Registration opens:
  •  on April 8 at 8 am for all GISSV parents.
  •  on April 10 at 8am for all GISSV Saturday School parents.
  •  on April 11 at 8am for everyone.
