Welcome to our Nursery

    Dear families,

    Our Phorms Campus in Berlin-Zehlendorf is housed in a listed building in the nice and green south- western area of Berlin. You will find the child care centre, the primary and secondary school located under the same roof at our bilingual, German-English Campus. Here we offer a community in German and English for 470 children and young people from age 1 to 18.

    We seek to maintain an environment which is cosmopolitan, warm and welcoming. Our children at the nursery, educators, our students, teachers and parents very much enjoy the family atmosphere we have created.

    Bilingual Education

    Language plays an important part in our bilingual concept of education. Children from the age of one receiving attentive care in English and German.

    The children learn both languages in a bilingual environment according to the immersion method. Each pedagogue speaks exclusively in his or her native language of either English or German, reinforcing the dual language setting. This enables the children to learn both languages within a natural context though conversations and interactions with teachers, in classroom lessons, in collaboration with their peers, at meals and through songs, stories and games. Our daily routine reinforces language use acquisition.
    Our Campus combines the pleasures of living among nature with the benefits of urban life. On the one hand we use the unbeatable range of cultural attractions of Berlin for a variety of trips and excursions. On the other hand the Campus which is based in the greenery of Berlin Zehlendorf offers lots of space for playing and numerous possibilities of excursions into nature.

    At present, 30 educators look after a total of 150 girls and boys in age-homogenous groups and reception.

    Our childrens' parents keep telling us what they appreciate most about Phorms, namely that, every day, their children like going to our kindergarten.

    Income-Dependent Tuition Fees

    We would like to make it possible for children from families in different income brackets to have access to our educational resources. For this reason, we decided to introduce income-dependent tuition fees.
