Join Kita on Kains

We would be grateful to receive your application.

At Kita on Kains we immerse children playfully in a German/English environment from an early age. We have been bringing bilingual learning to the German community in the Bay Area since 2012. Our mission is to create a warm and welcoming space in which children can be playfully exposed to the German language and culture. This is a very personal mission of mine, since I grew up bilingual in Germany, learning English from birth, having a Scottish mother.

We believe in a child-centered and play-based educational approach in which the teachers act as a guide and role model. At Kita on Kains we provide an age-appropriate, fun-filled, play-based program to meet the child’s individual needs.
