East Bay German International School Early Education
The EBGIS Early Childhood Program employs a play-based and project-oriented approach widely used in Germany. The highly trained and experienced international faculty uses early immersion principles to expand children’s communicative competencies in German and English. In-class projects are developed by an interdisciplinary team based on seasonal rhythms and students’ interests. A pre-academic curriculum including language, intercultural studies, science, mathematics, music, movement and art is taught in an engaging and developmentally appropriate way. Social and emotional skills development infuses every school day.
EBGIS prioritizes in-person instruction with rigorous health and safety measures.
No prior knowledge of German is needed for admission to EBGIS Preschool or Kindergarten. Students acquire German by immersion through daily routines, activities and interactions. Teachers nurture language development through intentional conversations, visual materials, gestures and modeling. EBGIS preschoolers and kindergarteners – more than half of whom do not speak German at home – transition successfully to the EBGIS grades program.
