Kinderstube is a German language immersion preschool program of the Germanic-American Institute, a Minnesota non-profit organization. We offer our preschool program at two convenient Twin Cities locations, Minneapolis and Saint Paul. Kinderstube is a fully licensed preschool program by the State of Minnesota for children ages 3 - 5 years old.
We pride ourselves in providing a small classroom environment with a stimulating, caring, and exciting immersion preschool experience that will foster the love of another language and its culture in your child. Our trained and experienced teachers speak German as their native language or have obtained native fluency in German as a second language.

A day at Kinderstube
Through daily play, music education , art and science exploration, as well as much needed outdoor play time we expose our students to all concepts of early childhood education which provides them with a quality preschool experience and the necessary academic, social and emotional Kindergarten readiness skills.

Future language learning
Even if German is not a long-term option that your child is able to pursue, our preschool program will offer incredible opportunities for his/her brain development and future language learning abilities.
For more info on the bilingual brain please visit our "Parent Corner" !
Some of the students who attend our German Immersion Preschool program continue their bilingual, academic path at the Twin Cities German Immersion School. Other families choose to attend their local schools upon preschool graduation and continue to improve their child's bilingual education through the multiple language classes offered at the Germanic-American Institute, such as tutoring, German language Summer camps or Samstagsschule (Saturday classes for elementary and middle school students).

"I am so pleased with my daughter’s development at Kinderstube. Not only do the preschoolers learn about the ABCs, colors, shapes, sharing and building relationships, the school also teaches impressive topics to the children such as learning the planets and how the water cycle works. Let’s not forget, this is all done in German!"
"I just wanted to let you know how much our children have thrived in this loving community, because of your amazing leadership and dedication to a positive learning environment!"
