Welcome to Language Garden, Sussex’s German Preschool!
Nestled on the edge of the South Downs in Falmer’s beautiful old village school, the Language Garden offers a magical space for immersive learning.
In our idyllic little world, we learn through activity. While we play, sing, bake, paint and take nature walks, we learn German language and culture, make new friends and have lots of fun.
We keep our groups small to best support each child’s language development.
We welcome children who are German native speakers or bilinguals and those new to the language.
Why is bilingualism good for your child?
Fluent in German or bilingual
In these sessions, we exclusively speak German.
The children in this group have very regular exposure to the language with a family member or caregiver.
While we play, we are always practising and improving German. The children should be able to understand and ideally even speak some German.
or new to German
This group is for children who are bilingual or new to German.
They are learning a new language or deepening existing language knowledge. We speak German, reinforcing words with gestures and hand signals.
Just as they pick up their first language, they will learn a second language naturally if they are surrounded by it.
