In compliance with our own meticulous safety measures developed during the early stages of the COVID pandemic and following the guidance of the new Department of Health regulations and including the regulations by the “Senatsverwaltung für Bildung, Jugend und Familie in Berlin”, Germany, our afterschool program has been adjusted, accordingly. With a focus on the outdoors, children will spend the afternoon primarily outside in a natural environment, such as Prospect Park or the outdoor backyards. The afterschool program encompasses monthly foci with a forest inspired curriculum.


Mondays: Role Play and Tales 

Our Role Play & Fairy Tales program stimulates the children’s imagination and curiosity and is designed to support children ages 2 to 8 in their German language development through role play and a variety of traditional and modern Fairy Tales. With the help of Fairy Tale classics and role play, the children will experience the stories in multiple ways and develop a deep appreciation for literature and the German language. It is especially important for children to explore the characters of a tale and the stories plot in different ways and will get the chance to be creative and include their own ideas through role play. A special focus lies on the stimulation of the child’s mind and individual language development, considering vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar and syntax while getting the chance to expressing themselves not only through verbal language but also through body language which will raise the children’s awareness of communication in a holistic way. All activities are aimed at supporting communication and interactive participation with the stories.


Tuesday – Young Forest Explores (4 up)

Based on the German model of Waldkindergarten, KinderHaus WaldKindergarten is distinguished by its commitment to total nature immersion, interest-led flow learning, an emergent curriculum, place-based focus, inquiry-based teaching style and authentic play. Instead of the classroom, children will spend the afternoon primarily in a natural environment, such as Prospect Park and follow the lead of our Waldorf-trained KinderHaus teachers, who will transform the surroundings into an exciting classroom with a forest inspired curriculum. Research has proven many benefits of this special educational approach, including a stronger immune system, better physical coordination and significant improvement in reading, writing, mathematics, and social interactions. Various research and articles have elaborated on its benefits.

Tuesday – Culinary Adventures

The old saying that “too many cooks spoil the broth” does not apply to our little chefs in the Cooking AfterSchool program at KinderHaus. Our culinary adventures enrich the children’s experiences in many different ways, appealing to all of their senses while teaching them about healthy nutrition. Common hands on cooking activities help support self-confidence, collaboration, problem-solving and fine motor skills. The children explore different herbs, fruits and vegetables by smelling, feeling, and tasting them. They travel around the world experiencing culinary adventures from different parts of the world, all while expanding their German vocabulary. Together, we create a variety dishes and enjoy the delicious taste of healthy food. By preparing and eating a meal together, the children’s sense of community is encouraged as well as their appreciation of healthy food. 


Wednesday – Spiel, Sport und Spass

The sports and games include Soccer, Tag, Track & Field, and more. We also work on motor skills and development through: Skipping, Hopping, and Balancing.

Wednesday – R/W

The KinderHaus Reading & Writing AfterSchool program focusses on developing solid skills in German reading and writing with a specialized approach for English-German bilingual children. The students are between 4 and 13 years of age and will be assigned to different study groups according to their proficiency levels. They focus on improving their German reading and writing skills by practicing German phonics (sounds) and letters, merging them to words and building first full sentences. All stories and workbooks used support early reading and writing comprehension skills through picture-matching, coloring activities, riddles and others that are a great and motivating choice for emergent readers.


Thursday – Theater Club

In our theater and acting workshop, children engage in a variety of activities which are designed to teach body awareness, self- expression, and respect for one another. During theater and acting games, children learn more about themselves as individuals and how to be empathetic around others. Acting out different roles teaches children to gain an alternative perspective, experience themselves in new ways, foster confidence, and a feeling of self-worth. Interactive role playing teaches children to use problem solving skills, actively communicate with each other and tap into their higher-order thinking skills. With the help of stories, games, and props, the children will learn to express themselves through a whole body experience, including large muscle movements and facial expressions.
