German Kindergarten


About Us

The German Kindergarten Leicester is a friendly and fun place for 3-6 year olds. We are in the Friends Meeting House almost in the centre of Leicester, just next to the University. Our two bright rooms offer a wonderful view of Victoria Park. We also enjoy our beautiful large garden behind the house in any weather.

We believe that learning is a natural aspect of life and strive to provide children with a stimulating and exciting environment in which to reside, grow, learn and live together. We help the children develop social skills, a sense of belonging to the group and learn to respect each other. We encourage children to become independent and confident members of our group, building on their strengths and preferences.


The Language Kindergarten is a small group with a maximum of 12 children and we give each child a lot of individual attention.  A teacher never looks after more than 4 children and all the teachers and helpers are full qualified and carry a recent DBS check.​

We support early language learning. Children are natural language learners and easily learn their first language in their social environment. Just as naturally, they will learn a second language if we surround them with it. It has been shown that children who know a second language not only learn each additional language more easily and quickly, but also develop better communication skills, hear more differentiated and are more flexible in their thinking. And for the children, learning a language is simply a great adventure!


All children spend the day together. For certain activities, however, we offer two language groups in which each child has the space and time to develop their language skills at their own pace with our support.


The days at the German Kindergarten Leicester are carefully planned with language learning in mind. We make language learning active and effective, involving all the senses in our sessions. We will learn about the festivals and customs of the German-speaking countries and the children will build long-lasting (German-speaking) relationships.  


We work closely with the parents and are happy to share our stories, songs and activities and the new words we have learned in the Language Kindergarten. We are also very active in various festivals and customs from German-speaking countries!
