Kids ProgramThe Deutsches Haus Kids Program is designed for children with at least one German speaking parent. It caters especially to Pre-K, elementary school and middle school children, furthering their acquisition of the German language. Raising children to be bilingual can be difficult; without a group of bilingual peers, children may find the second language frustrating. Deutsches Haus Kids provides an exciting alternative with lessons modeled on those of the German school system. We complement these lessons with a variety of cultural experiences, including a German Kasperltheater, a St. Martin lantern parade, and celebrations for both St. Nikolaus and Easter. Additionally, during the winter, we offer a Kids Book Club to improve reading and writing skills while cultivating students' interest in German literature.
The Kids Program staff holds Parent Teacher Conferences every semester to update families on classroom activities and individual students' progress. We pride ourselves on creating a sense of community among families with a shared interest in German, Austrian and Swiss culture.
