The Coloured World of Kids

Christian – Bilingual – Creative

We are a non-profit organisation and have been adding value to the Berlin district of Weißensee since 2011 with a small bilingual (English/German) Kindergarten. Here, families from different cultural backgrounds can meet and help to create a colourful, appreciative and courageous world for children. Our Kindergarten offers spaces for 20 children from 1.5 to 6 years. Between 7.30 and 16.30 the children are looked after and encouraged according to the guidelines of the Berlin education program. We charge an additional parental contribution of 33 – 88 € (depending on the parents’ income). Thank you for your interest! We encourage you to take a closer look at our lovingly designed and comprehensive programme.

Mission Statement

“The Colored World of Kids” stands for a colourful world in which every family has its own biography, language, lifestyle and expectations. We aspire to respect the individuality of each family of the children we serve, and to accompany and support the child alongside their parents. The Kindergarten is a place that aims to empower children to become responsible, tolerant, and capable of conflict, and to prepare them for life in a multicultural society.

Christian values and beliefs play a guiding role for us. Language means identity for us, the family’s languages should have their place in the Kindergarten and should be audible and visible to everyone. Our bilingual concept organically enables a natural second-language acquisition of the English or German language. With creativity and a variety of well-designed methods, we want to give children the opportunity to understand their world and to express themselves.

More about our concept, our familiarisation process, inclusive work, our participation in the Kita Language Programme and much more can be found here.

Projects

Our current project is called Body and Health, where we go on a journey of discovery through our body, discovering our strengths and interests and travelling through to our feelings. What does the heart sound like and can we make music using our heartbeats? What do we need to stay healthy especially in this winter season and what are all feelings out there? We will touch on the different educational areas of the BBP and are excited to see what questions the children ask about the topic and how we can find answers.

Publications

Children’s book: Ich bin… I am

This book offers kids simple word examples to familiarise themselves with the German or English language. Pre-school relevant topics such as their own identity (who am I and what do I like?), family and friends are explored – themes that can be used as catalysts for further communication. “I am…” is specifically designed for kids coming in contact with the English or German language for the first time for example, in a kindergarten setting and need some basic, self-effective linguistic skills.

This book was cultivated as a course of the government program “Sprachkita – because language is the key to the world”.

Children’s book: Panda, Me and Virus

Staying at home isn‘t easy for Lucy. She would much rather go to her Kindergarten and play with her friends. She goes on the quest for her own answers and meets Panda, Tiger and Virus.

“Addressing the multitude of emotions every child must be facing in these uncertain times, this book will make the COVID-19 lockdown so much more bearable for kids.”
