Welcome to Montessori Kinderhaus Karben!
"Help me to do it myself. Show me how it is done.
Don’t do it for me. I am able to and want to do it all by myself. Be patient in understanding my ways. They may be longer, I may need more time because I want to try several times. Let me make mistakes and expect me to struggle and make an effort, as through this I shall learn."
Welcome to our introduction and short summary of our website in English.
Montessori Kinderhaus Karben, or MoKiK as our children affectionately call us, is a parent-run bi-lingual pre-school and creche for children aged 6 months until 7 years. We have three groups for 45 children. The Blue Group for over-three year olds with 25 places and the Green and Yellow Group for under-three year olds with 10 places each. The Green group will provide families with a half-day option.
Located in the idyllic town of Karben surrounded by rural villages, yet in close vicinity of Frankfurt Main and Bad Vilbel, we provide families in the greater Frankfurt area with first-class childcare and authentic, accredited Montessori education in a happy and caring family-like setting.
Your child is at our core attention. We focus on your child‘s individual needs and abilities!
Our new, modern and bright building was custom-made for MoKiK. The building was initiated and led by entrepreneurs and married parents Simone Kraft-von Wantoch and Stefan Kraft (Personalwerk Media GmbH & Co. KG), bringing to life a heart-felt desire to support pre-school education and keep Montessori education in their local community. Along with our caring teachers it provides for a special child-oriented environment which allows your child to feel at home. Your child is loved and accepted just the way it is and guided in its development.
Team spirit AND individuality are most important in achieving this.
