• Lakeside School



Our Pre-Kindergarten (Pre-KG) bilingual, immersive programme focuses on learning through play. Qualified German and English native-speaking teachers accompany and support the children in their early explorations. A wide range of sensory-based activities promote the children’s social, emotional, motor and cognitive development. The children begin to embrace their second language at their own pace. A structured, play-based day provides a familiar and secure environment to develop practical life skills. All the competencies outlined in our unique bilingual curriculum are introduced through a holistic approach, as our children start on their journey to become independent thinkers and learners.
