Welcome to our world of various German Language programs for children. Please look at all our offerings and choose whatever best fits your child’s and family’s needs.

Rella’s Spielhaus, Manhattan’s First Immersion Day Care, provides your child’s perfect first home away from home in a professional and nurturing environment. We opened 5 ½ years ago and are in the process of moving to the Upper West Side.

Do Rella’s Kinderklassen interest you? We offer 7 weekly German classes for children from 0–9yrs. The little ones sing, play and dance together with a caregiver and the 3-5yr olds and the 6-9yr olds are learning German together with their friends. This program has started 7 years ago and will develop into a full fledged 3-6pm afterschool program and German Saturday school once we are in the new facilities.

And of course: Our German Summer Intensives and One-Day Holiday Intensives for kids 4–8 yrs are a wonderful way to prepare your child for her visit to Germany and/or give her that boost of immersion that she cannot get during the school year. Each week we choose super fun topics that include an arts and crafts project, a related song and a choreography that we will video tape and send home at the end of the week. It amazes us every year what leaps of progress the kids make during the summer.

But of course, you can also just join our Meet Up Group and celebrate one of the many German holidays with us – check our calendar!

Wir freuen uns immer, von neuen Familien zu hören!

Herzlich, Barbara (Founder & Director)
