We envision the bilingual, German-English Phorms Campus Hamburg as a place of learning with a particular focus on children’s needs and parents’ wishes.
Our day care centre offers room for 80-85 crèche and elementary children, as well as 60 preschool-aged children. In mixed-age groups, the crèche children (1.5 – 3 years) and the elementary level children (3 – 5 years) are introduced to using two languages by taking a playful approach. In the preschool groups (5 – 6 years) children are prepared in homogeneous age-groups to begin primary school. In these classes too, teams of English and German native speaking educators work together. To prepare the children for their first school year, we ensure that they are already exposed to English during the pre-school stage. One of the educators in each team speaks in English only, so that the children learn English in an everyday context.
Language plays a key role in our educational concept. As a bilingual, German-English educational institution, we emphasise the importance of both German and English.
The children learn both languages according to the immersion method (also known as “Sprachbad” – language bath – in German). Following this method, each educator of native-speaking level speaks exclusively in either German or English. In this way, the children learn both languages in natural contexts.
Our work depends on qualified, motivated and experienced staff. We employ German and English native speakers with a wide spectrum of educational backgrounds and experience, particularly in the field of bilingual education.
Our educators are specialised in English and also in specific subjects according to the recommendations for education in Hamburg. These subjects are spread out throughout the week and the children are divided into fixed groups to study them.
Our nursery is designed according to the principle of experiential learning spaces. The children have access to a variety of materials and can select from a wide range of options. Our experiential learning spaces are divided into functional spaces.
