Wurzelkinder is an innovative preschool and PreK with the mission to accelerate your child’s academic growth while nurturing their social-emotional development. The program plants roots so your child has a solid moral compass, becomes a lifelong learner, and has a strong cultural connection to the German language. At the same time, we give your child wings to soar into life’s further adventure by giving them ownership over their own educational journey. This comes with the benefit of educating bilingual children with a broader cultural awareness. Our small group setting creates your child’s safe “harbor” away from home.
