Kindergarten at CDSC
Our kindergarten is located on CDSC school grounds and consists of three groups. The groups are each supervised by a qualified pedagogical professional and a trainee/volunteer. Our kindergarten has three group rooms with different activity areas, a two-leveled role-playing room, an open cafeteria and a big outdoor space. The children have direct access to the playground and the sports area of the school. We cooperate closely with elementary school, nursery and parents.
The pedagogical work in our kindergarten is based on the principles of holistic education. We guide children as they shape their own development and encourage and challenge them in their needs and interests.
We observe a situational approach and implement a partially open concept.
Here, we offer space in which children of different social and cultural backgrounds feel comfortable, and we can cater to the individual needs of each child.
Through situation-oriented, holistic and child-oriented work, we teach skills, values and knowledge. We help our children:
- acquire language skills
- develop body and health awareness
- discover their own skills and learning methods
- strengthen their emotional and social skills
Using different forms of pedagogical work, we implement these goals:
- informal learning (free-play)
- project work
- weekly field trips

In the CDSC nursery program, children ages 1 to 3 years are supervised by professional German caregivers. The facilities are located in a building near the school.
We create a carefully arranged environment for your children in which they can develop freely through play and learn for all respects of life. We actively support them in this process.
“It is essential that children discover as many things as possible for themselves. If we are to solve all problems for a child, we deprive him of what is the most important for his mental development. A child who has achieved something by self-directed experimentation acquires a very different kind of knowledge than one who is offered a complete solution.”
We enjoy a good and intensive cooperation with the parents. We stress a regular exchange of information, and parents are informed in detail about the child’s progress and stage of development in an annual developmental talk.
