WHAT? Rella’s Spielhaus is proud to be a first rate licensed Group Family In-Home Daycare. The program is full German Immersion with native German speaking teachers and care takers. We accommodate up to 12 children ages 10 months to 5 years.

MISSION? Our mission is to create a safe and inspiring first home away from home. We offer an individualized program filled with singing, reading books, art projects, science and lots of movement. The teachers will specifically tailor the curriculum to the children’s different learning styles, while introducing first steps to socialization.


Rella’s Spielhaus is moved to the UWS! After over 6 years in Central Harlem with only 12 full time spots and a waiting list, we are thrilled to announce our new location: 50 West 97th Street between Columbus Avenue and Central Park West.


Where to find


"I started taking my daughter to the Saturday class since she was 6 months old. Csilla's enthusiasm and welcoming care makes the classes such a great fun and bonding experience. My daughter keeps on dancing and singing the songs at home too". Minh N, father of Nova, 2 years."Minh T. Nguyen

"I am impressed with the ease and delight with which both of my child slide into the use of German following each class". "The ability to use another language is more than just that -- it is an insight into another culture, history and approach to life -- and an invaluable everlasting gift that any parent can give to their child in this multifaceted and increasingly global world". "Barbara and her team are extremely knowledgeable, both in their training and experience when it comes to bilingual education. They are also incredibly warm with the children. Plus, there is an added unexpected bonus -- the team is very musical -- they sing and dance as well as any New York professional in the area!"Eva Lasky

"Our son has gone to Barbara’s and Csilla’s Kinderklassen for three years now and he absolutely loves it. The day he has his Kinderklasse is absolutely his favorite day of the week. He loves all of the varied activities, especially singing and dancing! And I’m always amazed how much he is learning during his time at Kinderklassen. "Nathalie

"Our daughter and son love their German class with Csilla. Learning German while singing, reading, dancing, playing. Very engaging teacher, very happy kids!"Frank & Spyridoula
