For children with prior German knowledge who turn three part way through the year: If there are spaces available, she or he is welcome to start mid-year this year (any time after the child’s 3rd birthday).
For children with no prior German knowledge who turn three part way through the year: If there are spaces, we can sometimes offer your child a place mid-Term 1 or early Term 2. After this, it is best to wait until Term 1 the following year. We support our teaching of the German language with the Goethe Institute’s Hans Hase program, which builds the children’s vocabulary every lesson, each week building upon the previous week. The level of German comprehension needed for the class increases as the year goes on.
Please put your child’s name on our waiting list as early as possible, either way.
Want to start shortly before their third birthday?
Children can attend forup to two weeks before their third birthday, but must be accompanied by a parent/guardian at all times. Once your child is three, they can remain at GAP by themselves.
