Admissions


We warmly welcome new families on a rolling admissions basis.

Kinderhaus Brooklyn is committed to look at children’s development in its entirety. Our holistic approach places special emphasis on supporting the child to become an independent and autonomous personality to take one’s own decisions. The strong positive bond between children and our teachers is the core of our immersive and inquiry-based curriculum, focussing on children’s individual strengths and development. 

All of us at Kinderhaus feel very lucky and happy to be part of the German community in New York and we are all driven to learn more about each other and each individual background and culture. 

Thank you for your interest and trust.
