German Immersion Montessori preschool in New York City for 2, 3 and 4 year old children – In Brooklyn since 2004.

Serving the international, multi-cultural German speaking community in NYC for 10 years now, our German Immersion preschool combines academic excellence with an intimate, nurturing and stimulating environment in a unique, comprehensive Montessori based curriculum for bi-lingual children that is comparable to the finest preschools available in NYC. Our small, mixed-age classes are limited to 12 students (aged 2 to 4) with with 3 teachers.

Our beautiful, sunny preschool space provides a cozy, home-like setting for our vibrant preschool community to learn, thrive and form strong, lasting ties. We have a spacious backyard for outdoor play time as well as gardening and planting activities.

Wortspiele’s unique and comprehensive preschool curriculum for bilingual children not only focusses on helping children develop German as a second native language, but also fosters (and values) independence, creativity, flexibility, curiosity, a love of learning and strong self-esteem in our students – qualities that will serve our children well growing up as young New Yorkers. Here, or everywhere else.

Where to find


"Our daughter has been attending Wortspiele for 2 years. It was warm and welcoming place, just like a home. The entire staff care deeply about the children, they’re able to maintain a very close relationship, are very involved and aware of everything that goes on in these young lives. They always have an open door for any questions and concerns and are truly interested in the lives of every one of their young students. They guide them with a loving and firm hand. Christine selects the topics for the classroom based on what is happening in the world around them (the changing weather, seasons, holidays, festivals, etc.) and also what they the children themselves are interested in. And this is all done in a fun, engaging and interesting manner. They don’t even realize just how much they are learning and we love it when our daughter comes home excited to tell and share just how much she has done and learned. This also goes hand in hand with the social skills, such as getting along, sharing, being empathetic."Judith S.

"My son has been a part of the Wortspiele community for the past three years. He has thrived in the environment that Christine and her team provide and has learned so much. There are many things to love about Wortspiele, from the music and theater performers who come in each week, to trips to the Botanic Gardens, to playtime outside, arts & crafts, the sense of community and friendship between the children - but my favorite of all is that each child is accepted for who they are. Christine truly knows the children, she cares about them, she spends time discussing needs or concerns with the parents. She fosters the children’s talents and helps them grow based on their levels and needs - all under the premise that everyone is okay the way they are."F. W.
