New German Bilingual Program for children in San Francisco
Do you live in San Francisco and would like your toddler practice his/her German also in Kindergarten? AltSchool in San Francisco has started a German Bilingual program in collaboration with families from Kinderhaus, San Francisco’s only German preschool.
Kinderhaus’ families wanted a progressive, child-centered program, which also was rigorous in German language. The launch of the inaugural German Bilingual program at AltSchool’s Dogpatch school has been a success. The program fosters a whole-child, personalized learning experience while developing proficiency in the German language. Class work is 50% in German and 50% in English, and educators inspire an appreciation of German culture, arts, and history through project-based learning.
The school is accepting applications for TK – 2nd grade from students who are strongly proficient in the German language. If you are interested in learning more about the program, please attend the AltSchool German Open House!
The Open House event will be led by German Bilingual program co-teacher and Head of School, Annette Bauer.
OPEN HOUSE EVENT Details including registration information: Date: Monday, November 23, 2015 Time: 10:30-11:30 am Location: AltSchool Dogpatch, 610 20th Street, San Francisco, 94107
