Welcome to our Kindergarten

About us

We see ourselves as a place where your child can discover the world, develop and grow individually in a familiar, supportive and structured environment.

In our pedagogical concept, we follow both the Hessian curriculum (BEP) and the Primary Years Program (PYP). PYP framework has been developed globally by the "IBO" (International Baccalaureate Organization) and it enjoys an excellent reputation in the global education landscape. In kindergarten, the learning processes are naturally playful and adapted to the needs of each child.

We currently offer a total of 50 places for children between the ages of 3 and 5 in three groups and are planning to expand our facility in the coming months.

We are a bilingual kindergarten - what does that mean?

Your children are cared for in our groups by both German and English speaking professionals. The language acquisition takes place according to the so-called immersive method: Because the professionals communicate with the children in their own mother tongue, they learn the additional language authentically, without pressure and in a playful way. If necessary, we offer additional language support.

Opening Hours

  • from Monday to Thursday from  8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
  • Fridays from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.

Daily routine

Our daily routine is clearly structured to give the children security for their own development.

The children are therefore assigned to fixed groups with fixed caregivers. However, within the framework of projects, play times and excursions, the children also get to know each other across groups.

  • 08:00 - 09:00 Outside Play
