Early Years

Message from the Head of Early Years

Welcome to our BBS Kita/Early Years.

The location of the Kita/Early Years is in the idyllic surroundings of the Berlin Grunewald on Havelchaussee.

The K1 (ages 3-4) and K2 (ages 4-5) groups are housed in this building. Attached to the building is a spacious outdoor play area which is used for educational activities. In addition to a library, we also have an inquiry room and a computer room which are also part of the premises of our Kita/Early Years site.

The K3 group (5-6 years) is the last year of the Kita/ Early Years. Our K3 groups are situated at the Primary School site on Dickensweg. K3 children have their own outdoor play area and access to all Primary School facilities. From September 2024 K3 will join K1 and K2 groups at the Havelchausse.

Our curriculum is based on a blend of the Foundation Stage Curriculum from England and Wales, the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme and the Berlin Education Programme. Each group is supervised by an English-speaking teacher or teaching assistant and a German-speaking Erzieher/in. This combination provides the best of all systems enabling us to provide a British-based bilingual education.

For more information about our Kita/Early Years, please see our Early Years Handbook.

Our Kita/ Early Years is open from 7:30-17:00. In addition, holiday care is available during core hours in most school holidays. For more information, please contact our Admissions Team.
