The basic goal of our playgroup is to provide children of native English-speaking parents the opportunity to hear and speak their mother tongue in a social environment.
In the younger groups, the focus is most certainly on the Mum or Dad attending playgroup and many long-lasting friendships are forged in these early years.
For our older children who attend local kindergarten, English often automatically takes a back seat to German, which means that our weekly meetings take on an important role in demonstrating that English is a perfectly normal and accepted means of communication.
Although our playgroup primarily serves the native English-speaking community in Stuttgart, we also accept applications from non-native parents who are raising their children bilingually and speak English at home.
All members must be willing and able to speak only English during the entire two-hour weekly playgroup meetings and the children are actively encouraged to do the same.
Prospective members are welcome to attend two meetings at no cost before joining the playgroup.
