The preschool enrolls new students throughout the year as students become ready for preschool and when space is available in the program.
The preschool has multi-age class groupings of children from 2.9 to 5 years of age. No prior knowledge of German is required for the preschool. The German language immersion nature of the preschool program gives students a solid linguistic foundation for transitioning into the regular GAIS academic program. We hope that children in our preschool will continue in our English / German bilingual elementary school.
All children enrolled in our program must be potty-trained. They should also have a certain degree of independence (e.g., be able to change clothes, have some prior experience playing with other children in a group).
How to Apply
After you have taken a tour or talked to us about the program, and you wish to apply, please apply online and submit the $75 application fee. Once you have been notified of acceptance, you will then be asked to fill out an enrollment contract and pay the annual enrollment fee and a tuition deposit.
At that point your child will have a confirmed place in the school. Before attending school, a series of forms and health records will need to be submitted to the school office.
