About the school

The German-American School of Fort Lauderdale offers full-time and part-time programs for children age one through five, including VPK. This APPLE accredited school began serving families in the Fort Lauderdale area in 2001. It’s open Monday through Saturday from 7:00am to 6:00pm, with after-care. The school is committed to motivating children and providing safe places for them to develop. The school offers a full-immersion German experience, with dual German programs: One for native speakers and one which treats German as a foreign language.

Educational philosophy and administration

The German-American School’s curriculum is inspired by the Montessori method, a child-centered approach designed around scientific observations of early childhood development. Activities are hands-on and self-directed, and teachers serve as guides. The school also uses elements of the Funshine Express and Learn Every Day curricula. One parent says the school offers a “loving and stimulating environment, where learning is fun and done mostly through playing and investigating with all senses.” The school also teaches about German culture, customs and traditions and participates actively in the German community. The facility also features three large, shaded playgrounds. Owner-Director Svenja Iglesias grew up in Germany and received advanced early education degrees there before opening the German-American School in Fort Lauderdale. One parent describes the teachers as “very caring” and “fun-loving.” Another writes, “The teachers are truly amazing, so dedicated, encouraging and kind. They not only nurture the children’s minds but also their hearts.” The campus features cameras outside the building and inside each classroom to keep children safe.
