Child-Centered Approach

Our preschool teachers nurture each child by adhering to a child-centered approach, which includes:
  • Maintaining small group sizes
  • A student-teacher ratio of 8:1
  • Valuing the child’s personality and background
  • Planning curriculum around student interests
  • Offering a daily structure that offers security in routines
  • Giving students agency for their learning
  • Fostering a caring and empathetic relationship with students
We make sure that our students feel safe, included, and valued. In short, we believe that every student must belong and matter in our preschool.
German International School Chicago is a preschool through 8th grade school that prepares students to become well-rounded, creative, and responsible global citizens. We provide students with a rigorous German-English bilingual education in a supportive and individualized learning environment.
