Kindergarten

DSD caters for children between the ages of 3 – 6 years. It offers a comprehensive learning programme in German. Our qualified teachers ensure that the children’s cognitive, emotional and motor skills are developed and fostered through carefully planned activities.
The programme is organized around interesting themes and includes arts and crafts, singing, numerical and language related group activities, play and physical exercise. Language development is of great importance in this age group, as some of our children come from homes where German may not be their first or main language.

The pre-school curriculum offers a great opportunity to German as well as non-German speaking children to learn and build up the German language to such a degree, that they are able to hold their own in Grade 1, where German is the language of instruction.
Children with no prior knowledge of German must be enrolled into the Kindergarten from as young an age as possible so that they can learn German before entering Grade R.
