Structure of the bilingual pre-school

Our bilingual pre-school, a kindergarten, is open to children aged between 2 and 6 years. About 50% of our families are at least bilingual.

Group structure

The Bilingual Preschool consists of five mixed-age bilingual family groups in which up to 23 children are cared for. Each group is led by two pedagogical specialists.

Our youngest children (2 to about 3.5 years) start in the toddler groups. The groups are purely German-speaking and specially designed to meet the basic needs of very young children. The maximum group size is 15 children.

Childcare hours

Your child is most welcome from 7:30 a.m. for the early session. You can choose the pick-up time: 3:40 p.m. or 6:00 p.m.

You can find our holiday calendar and information about stages on the iDSB campus HERE.

Group language

Bilingual groups: German/French or German/English

Foreign languages

We ensure a child-friendly atmosphere for our pre-school children based on the immersion method. In the “language pool”, the children are supervised by a German-speaking and an English-speaking or French-speaking pedagogical specialist depending on the chosen foreign language.

Educational structure

Our teaching structure is based on the Thuringian Educational Plan, which is considered a high-quality educational standard. The children always take the center stage since we focus on an individualized learning process. In this regard, we have many open activities in the afternoons in addition to the kindergarten’s core hours. These are intended to arouse the interests and inclinations of the children.

We also focus on the quality framework for kindergartens and pre-schools that is stipulated by the Central Office for Foreign Schools.


An exciting pre-school program with thematic programs and basic skills training is the ideal preparation for the primary school.

Our welcome culture includes…

  • presentation of the bilingual pre-school
  • an individualized adaptation phase for every child accompanied by the parents
  • many opportunities to make friends with schoolmates quickly in our school programs
  • a school community that provides you with excellent tips and a network to help you quickly and easily find your way in Belgium
