A warm welcome to KIDS Kindergarten!
The kindergarten was founded in 1993 by a parent-led initiative. The founding parents were looking for an opportunity to promote an Anglo-German cultural and linguistic exchange.
They set up an association known as the ''Kinder-Initiative für Deutsch-Englische Sprache e.V.'' - hence the name KIDS.
With places for 20 children, KIDS aims to provide a rounded bi-lingual education for 3 to 6-year-olds in a happy and stimulating environment between 8:00am and 3:00pm Monday to Friday. The educational concept applied at KIDS combines the best elements of the German and Anglo-Saxon models and weaves these into a unique multicultural environment that is enjoyed by a balanced mixture of children from different cultural, linguistic and social backgrounds.
Our four teachers provide an excellent ratio of one teacher to six children. Two of the teachers work full-time, two part-time. They are supported by an intern (Praktikantin).
KIDS is situated in a quiet lane at the top of Frankfurt's largest green space, Grüneburgpark, in the heart of Frankfurt city.
