We are a professional and caring team of native German speakers, most with backgrounds in education and teaching.
All members of our team are carefully recruited and particularly selected for their suitability to work with children and their families. Usually two teachers are present throughout a session.
We are fully insured, are all CRB/DBS checked, and hold Paediatric First Aid and Food Safety and Hygiene certificates.
Anja – Founder/Director
Born and raised in Germany, I studied primary teaching before travelling as a professional percussionist through Europe, West Africa and the United States. After settling in the UK. I worked as a senior events and marketing manager and qualified as a nutritionist. Having become a mum, it was very important to me that my children grew up bilingual and I became involved in setting up the German Saturday School Brighton & Hove, which I co-chaired for four years.
During that time, the dream of creating a community of bilingual families was born. From that, grew the idea of setting up a German kindergarten. I opened the doors of our house in Kemptown for children in 2014 and four years later, we had grown so big that I looked for new premises. In the summer of 2018 my dream for a big, sunny new home for the Language Garden, surrounded by nature, came true and we moved to the beautiful old village school premises in Falmer.
