Preschool Admissions

New Students

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 3 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 fill out the online application and send it to the school with a $75 application fee. The school will inform you about the status of your application once you have successfully submitted all required information and payment. 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.
