Located within the serene Highlands area, the Newlands Kindergarten is run by the German School Society that was established in 1992.

Our ultimate goal is to holistically accompany and support our children as they develop in their formative years.

Adventure awaits our children in our classrooms and especially in our spacious, beautiful garden as they engage in games, art and movement as processes of learning. Nature is said to be the best teacher - and our methods of engaging with our children reinforce just that as we seek to stimulate all their senses and inspire their imagination and motivate them to creative expressions and imaginations.

Our curriculum is in line with the Zimbabwe National Preschool Association as well as focusing on the Montessori Philosophy to build the child's self-confidence. It caters for all your child's cognitive, sensory and social development needs.

Afternoon care is available for busy moms and dads who may not have the time to make the long trip home during a lunch break, as well as catering for school children with the offer of homework support. Our nutritious lunch and an afternoon snack are included in our affordable fees.

Educational trips take place each term, in addition to an End of Year Concert, Graduation Celebration and Sports Day, which give the children the opportunity to show their learning and progress to their parents. Termly reports and graduation certificates are issued. Organizing sleep overs, camping weekends and holiday groups are specialties of our life at the KiGa.
