Dear parents and friends of KISH, 

We are very pleased that you are interested in learning more about KISH Kindergarten through our website. Here you will find details of our educational ethos, our fee structure and our routine. But, it is also important that you view your child’s future nursery in person – So please feel free to get in touch to arrange a visit!

We are a day nursery with a focus on nature education and outdoor learning.

With our pedagogical ethos we support children on their  path to becoming open, honest, friendly and expressive personalities. 

Early Years Funding is available.

Our ethos

We are excited to share our KISH concept with you. Many different educational approaches, learning theories and psychological strategies merge to form our KISH ethos.

Here is a short summary of our well established concept. If you are interested to read more, we are happy to share all details with you!

Nature concept

Nature-based learning focuses on the holistic development of the child. Nature encourages children to be physical and to develop through lots of activities both fine and gross motor skills.
We spend time outdoors on a daily basis – in any weather – and enjoy different seasons either in our garden or in the neighbouring woodland. Equipped with the perfect outfit of waterproof trousers, rain coats and welly boots we are ready to explore our environment and learn from it.


KISH Kindergarten is proud to have a bilingual team teaching in either German or English. The children within our group come from many language backgrounds and most of them already experience two or more languages within their families. Speaking one’s home language is crucial for conveying social and emotional understanding. This approach is highly valued by our team, who speak to the children in their main language.
All our traditions and routine changes are supported in both languages: tidy up songs, circle time activities, register time, birthdays, hello songs, finger- and action games. As we all know children are active learners. Therefore, all our language activities are based on visuals, hands-on experiences: messy play, music, experiments and food activities. 
It is not only children growing up in multilingual families that benefit from a bilingual early year setting, but absolutely everybody!

Early years foundation stage

At KISH Kindergarten each child is seen and accepted as an individual and we aim to pay tribute to their needs and their level of development. In the daily routine, in free play, and in specifically planned activities, the children’s way of life, as well as their individualism have absolute priority.

We encourage the children to create their own experiences, to expand their horizons, to develop specific abilities and skills, to help them to understand their world and to assist them in finding their place in their environment.
Within the group, children learn to make positive social contacts, value each other’s views and gain experiences in sharing, turn-taking, and collaboration. With an emphasis on continuous improvement and development, we work with the children to develop their linguistic, physical, and mental abilities.
