We are the parents of the Multi Lingua Kitas, and together we make up the ever important Parents' Association (Förderverein).
Why do we do this?
To support our Kitas' unique multilingual concept, based on the immersion concept.
What exactly does this mean for our children?
The multilingual concept is not supported by our Kita vouchers (Kitagutschein). Due to our additional parent contributions, our Kitas are able to employ native speakers (English and Russian).These native speakers are paid by the Förderverein (via the Kita Administration), and are outside of the Kitas' statutory entitlement from the state of Berlin (Betreuungsschlüssel).
Additionally, the multilingual concept creates a higher need for educational material such as books and learning materials in languages other than German, and the Förderverein finances these materials as well.
For these reasons, all parents of our Kitas actively commit to funding the unique multilingual concept through additional contributions (see fee schedule for current membership rates). Thanks to you, our parents, we are able to secure our unique multilingual concept now and for the future.
