Language acquisition that begins early, is carefully guided by experts and happens in a natural environment leads to life-long competence.

“The sooner, the better.” When it comes to learning a language, this statement is irrefutable. In kindergarten, children are at an age when their language is particularly susceptible to outside influences. This is why it is important for them not only to practise the second language, but also to actually use it naturally to engage with the world. As a result, kindergarten will prove to be a varied and exciting time for both children and parents.

Our bilingual Kindergarten is open all day. It offers a well-supervised, safe and stimulating learning environment for four- to five-year-old children. 

SIS has developed its own curriculum for children in this age group, comprising six areas of learning and discovery. Our Kindergarten is the ideal preparation for the transition into the bilingual SIS Primary School.

Bilingual from Day One

The children are supervised by German- and English-speaking teachers who use their native languages to communicate with their students. As such, German and English are heard and spoken in almost equal measure throughout the day, and the children grow up bilingually in a natural way.

Eventful School Days

Regular trips to the woods and the waterside, games, exercise and movement, both indoors and outdoors, play an important part. Furthermore, children take part in activities and projects with other classes, and celebrate local as well as international festivals and traditions. They also gain their first age-appropriate experiences working with a tablet or computer.

Rooms and Facilities

The SIS campus is easily accessible by public transport or by car. Our youngest students feel very comfortable in the modern and lovingly furnished rooms.


Our Kindergarten can be visited for a period of one to three years. Admission is also possible during the year.
