Our bilingual nursery school and kindergarten Joki Harlaching
Joki Harlaching is a little gem. In the previous silo of the Kraemer mill, the children experience a quiet oasis in the middle of a big city. The rush of the Auer millstream and the charm of the old mill building bring a special atmosphere to this nursery. The rooms on the ground and first floor are bright, spacious and furnished to a high standard. Each group has its own room and a separate sleeping room that can also be used for other activities. The older children can also visit the kindergarten group which is in the same building.
The nice, rambling garden with various play equipment and sand pits is used exclusively by us. The children can make lots of discoveries about nature in this 900 square metre plot. On our outings we can explore the Isar which is in walking distance, the sheep on our neighbour`s field and the nearby zoo.
Further details about the history of this lovely, unusual area can be found here.
Bilingual care from the beginning: Alongside our German speaking teachers, each group will normally have an English speaking carer who will introduce the children to their language and culture through fun and games. Using the Immersion method, our native speakers speak with the children solely in their mother tongue. The aim is not to teach the children a language in a school-like way, but rather that they should come into contact with a foreign language, songs and games.
Our own cook receives special intensive training about the nutritional needs of young children. She prepares all meals fresh each day and appropriate for the age of the children. Therefore, it is not necessary to bring any snacks to the nursery. The menu can be adjusted for children with allergies.
It goes without saying that the crèche children at Harlaching have priority in receiving a kindergarten place here, so that the children experience the whole of their pre-school care in the same nursery and with the same values. And also friendships with other children, parents and carers can develop wonderfully.
You can register for a place in our crèche or kindergarten here.
Joki has an exceptionally high staff to child ratio. In each group 3-4 carers look after the children in the creche and the kindergarten.

Through this the intercultural competence of the children is encouraged, which prepares them for a globalised world. Additionally their brains will be trained according to well-founded scientific findings without any pressure of a particularly intensive form. A high mental flexibility results all the more, the earlier and more consistently the child finds itself in a multilingual environment. You can find further information at www.fmks-online.de.
