Growing up multilingual is a wonderful gift for a child to have. Children love Children. Children need Children. Language acquisition and usage is reinforced in an environment where children are able to speak to their peers in the immersion language. As the first german full time playschool in New York City, located in Park Slope, KinderHaus offers an indoor and outdoor space for children up to 8 years old.
We have structured a developmentally appropriate program based on a child's intellectual, social, and physical needs and which is designed to encourage child-initiated learning activities within a supportive environment. Pioneers such as Froebel & Montessori who have focused on "the whole child" education, are our role models.
The focus of the program is "learning with all our senses" to retain each child’s original joy of learning. There will be a good balance between structured projects and free play with "sachbegegnung" and learning about nature and your environment, language enrichment, sense training, handling of quantities, numbers, forms, rhythmic-musical education and movement. We encourage children to be an active part of the Kinderhaus. Participation is a strong aspect in our work and we believe that children can play a significant role in inventing and shaping their themes and projects.
