Kinderwerkstatt (Kinder Workshop)

Kinderwerkstatt (Kinder Workshop)

May 2016 h cr rz.JPG

The Kinderwerkstatt (Kinder Workshop) was founded in 1997 by a group of parents who wanted to encourage and foster bi-literacy in their children by involving them in a program entirely in the German language.  We provide a full German immersion program to children at various competency levels.  We instruct children ranging in age from 4 to 17 years in ability-based groups.

The school year begins after Labor Day and ends before Memorial Day.  Classes are offered at two different locations:  Tuesdays at Alcott Elementary School in Clairemont from 4:30-6:00 PM, and on Fridays at the same time at the Innovations Academy in Scripps Ranch.

Parental membership in the House of Germany is mandatory for insurance reasons.


Adult german language program

This year we are again offering our adult German language class to House of Germany members.  Class is held on Fridays at 4:30 - 6:00 PM at the Innovations Academy in Scripps Ranch.    If you are not already a member of the House of Germany see our Membership page for information on joining.


We are now open for enrollment for the new school year of 2018/19.

The tuition for childrens' classes is $480/year (30 sessions).  Discounts are offered for families sending 2 or more children to the classes.  Discounts of 25% are provided to parents who serve as volunteer hosts at the House of Germany on weekends.  A limited number of full scholarships are also available for families with qualifying income.

We are planning to continue and expand the adult class on Fridays.  The classes will be held at the Innovations Academy in Scripps Ranch. The adult tuition fee for the entire school year remains $650. If you attend just one semester or plan to pay in two increments, the tuition per semester will be $350.

For insurance reasons all children must be enrolled before the first day of class.  To register, fill out the Registration form (Child or Adult class) and Enrollment Agreement (see links below) and mail them with a tuition check issued to "House of Germany", memo "Kinderwerkstatt," to:
Kinderwerkstatt San Diego
Anke Byrne
5051 Gardena Ave
San Diego CA 92110

For planning the new school year (renting class rooms, hiring teachers, buying materials etc.) an early sign-up is crucial to have a less stressful start in September after Labor Day. Students per class should not exceed more than 10.  We also reserve the right to cancel classes due to insufficient enrollment.

It would be great to expand our German Language Program. Please spread the word about the Kinderwerkstatt. If you need some brochures about the Kinderwerkstatt as handouts to interested families, please let us know.

If you are interested in teaching a class or being on our substitute teacher list, please send us an email message.  We would like to hear from you!
