About us 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 St. Paul. Kinderstube is a fully licensed preschool program by the State of Minnesota for children ages 3 to 5 years old.
Hours of operation Our school-year program is available September through mid June from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. We also offer weekly summer camps from 8 a.m. to noon.
Classroom atmosphere 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. Our attending students come from diverse backgrounds and German language skills are not required for enrollment.

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.
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 education opportunities at the Germanic-American Institute, such as tutoring, German language summer camps, or Samstagsschule (Saturday classes).
