All children turning 5 until August visit preschool. And all children turning 5 between september and december are can be admitteds to preschool, if they start school the following year. In practice, this means that the Kindergarten staff and the parents discuss what is best for the child and if it is ready to visit preschool. For some children, it may be too challenging and early to adapt to strict timeframes and pedagogical tasks defined by others, and this could lead to difficult first school years. The staff of the German Embassy School will therefore make the final decision, if a younger child can begin preschool or spend another regular year at Kindergarten. In the 2. semester of the preschool year, the group is working closer with the elementary school in order for the children to get acquainted with rules, facilities and teachers.

The main objectives of the preschool year: 

  • awareness of own abilities
  • managing a structured day
  • finding a place in the group; collaborating with others, practicing democracy
  • learning and accepting rules
  • practice concentration
  • listen to the teacher and other children
  • patience
  • to talk about a toppic and work independantly
  • good physical ccordination and crafting skills
  • supporting creativity and musicality in language usage
  • body awareness, relaxation and psycho motoric
  • ability to handle small tasks



Liebe Eltern, liebe Erziehungsberechtigte, Mobbing ist ein Begriff, der in aller Munde ist. Er wird gern und häufig für alle möglichen Verhaltensweisen gebraucht, die uns nicht gefallen; für Streitigkeiten unter Kindern, Provokationen, Necken, aber auch für Schikanen, Übergriffe, Erpressung. Mobbing ist ein ernst zu nehmendes Thema. Nur mit der Unterstützung möglichst vieler Helfer kann diese Form von Gewalt bekämpft und das Opfer wirksam unterstützt werden.
Ab sofort ist
Frau Doris Johnson sozialpaedagogin(at) ihre Ansprechparterin zu diesem Thema.

Dear parents, dear legal guardians, mobbing is a term that is on everyone's minds. It is used frequently for all kinds of behaviour which we do not like; for disputes among children, provocations, teasing, but also for harassment, assaults, blackmail. Bullying is a serious matter. Only with the support of as many helpers as possible can this form of violence be combated and the victim effectively supported.
As of now
Mrs. Doris Johnson
