In the heart of North Texas, the German ISD offers more than just a glance at German culture. Since its founding in 2008, German ISD is the only German language immersion program in the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex providing full-time, weekday German language instruction to children 18 month to 5 years.
German ISD provides a learning environment deeply rooted in the central European culture and education system, yet encouraging the development of a global perspective. From day one, students are exposed to German language and culture in a warm and supportive environment. German ISD incorporates many German, Austrian and Swiss traditions into its program. The staff follows the “German Kindergarten Philosophy”, which emphasizes the development of children in a holistic manner. The school focuses on learning through child-directed play experiences and curriculum based on the “Bayerischer Bildungs- und Erziehungsplan fuer Kinder in Tageseinrichtungen”. The German ISD leadership believes in the balance of play and preschool, which enhances growth and development of its children in all areas: physically, socially, emotionally, creativity and intellectually.
The Pre-K class for the 4 and 5 year old follows a daily structure, with a focus on early arithmetic, language and writing programs. All classes follow the European concept to play outside daily. Children bring their weather appropriate clothes and ride balance bikes, play in the sandbox, climb and swing, run around or kick the ball in our beautiful outside play area, our “Spielplatz”. German ISD is a place where essential skills are nurtured through play, investigation and, of course, fun!
