- For Children from 4 Years Onwards
The German School is aware that the basis of a good start is a solid pre school education and is
therefore investing lots of efforts. Under german supervision, the children are individually challenged,
encouraged and stimulated.
- Our System of Education
To encourage the children right from the beginning in their development we are working with comprehensive age groups. Relating to their age, each child is learning the demands in a playful way.
We emphasis on a bilingual concept called "immersion learning", which means that one pre school teacher only speaks German, while another speaks only arabic. We are looking forward to all children starting from the age of 4 years!
We believe a fixed curriculum is part of a primary school, but of course we will have fixed plans with all contents which are necessary for structuring the pre school. In these weekly and monthly plans the main issues for the development of the children are set:
- Body, exercises and health
- Spoken and written language
- Basis of science
- Arts and creativity
The pre-school is starting at 9 a.m. and ending at 4.15 p.m. from Sundays till Thursdays. The holiday planing is the same than for the primary school.
Generally there is a compulsory attendance, because the regularly visit of the pre school is the basis for the child feeling as a part of the group. The attendance of just some hours per day is disturbing the schedule for the children. If you wish a special agreement please let us know in the application.
After the lunch break the children will have the possibility for sleeping, relaxing or just listen to a story or to music. It will be facultativ for the children.
- A Bilingual Education
- Children who are not speaking german will be introduced to this language to guarantee the needed level for the primary school. Children with german as mothertongue will intensify their knowledge and will have the possiblity to learn arabic. Children who will visit the arabic school part will be given a good basis for a sucessful learning in the primary school. They will be encourage to use the language.
For this bilingual education we use the „Immersions“ teaching, which mean that the children are learning by speaking and listening. One teacher is just speaking german, the other one just arabic. So the children are learning easy and without pressure.
