For children between the ages of 3 and 5, we offer a 5 days a week mixed age group Preschool programme from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.. In Preschool, your child will receive a positive foundation for a lifelong love of learning. The environment is supportive and nurturing, always prioritizing your child’s needs and interests.

Step by step
Each child goes through developmental stages at his or her own pace. We take our time, gently guiding each child through these stages while fostering individual skills. Age-appropriate activities help create self-confidence and self-reliance. Learning through free play is especially important because children learn to take the initiative and use their own ideas. With the multifaceted use of play and the development of basic skills, our early years’
daily routineis a balanced mix of organized activities and playtime.

Social skills
Your child will learn how to express his or her own feelings and needs, while at the same time learning to handle conflicts. Empathy and tolerance are developed. Increasing independence while contributing to the smooth functioning of the group is a valuable skill acquired during these years - one which will pay life-long dividends.

Learning languages
The children at AvH come from many different cultures and backgrounds. Through stories, songs and games, the children learn to understand and express themselves in the German language. Over half of our students come from families where little or no German is spoken at home, and parents are often surprised how soon their children bring home songs and little poems from school. Learning a new language is child’s play at AvH!
