Preschool Campus

The preschool is housed in a large villa with a spacious garden. In addition to the play space, there is a 6m x 12m garden plot where over 25 varieties of fruits and vegetables are grown. The location is well-situated to ‘doorstep resources’ such as the Schillerplatz Public Library, the Waldpark, and the Elbe River and is also within easy walking distance to two tram lines. The property is secured by a fence and front and back locked gates. There is video surveillance of the front and back entrances. The preschool is open 7:30-18:00.

Caring Environment

On the ground floor of the villa are the Froggies (age 1-2) and Ducklings (age 2-3) classrooms, the foyer, and the school office. On the first floor are three classrooms of the 3-5-year olds, and on the second floor, there is an atelier, library, resource room, staff kitchen, and staff lounge. The kitchen, cafeteria, sports room, and two coatrooms are in the basement.
