Open House

Come on in and visit!

During the academic year, we open our doors, and invite you along with your children to experience a typical day with us at our preschool here in Potomac, Maryland. You and your little ones can observe our children throughout the day starting with circle time, craft projects, reading circles, as well as German language sessions. It is a fabulous opportunity to not only get to meet our certified, German-speaking teachers and observe them at work, but you will also meet parents of our current students and can exchange experiences with them.

Separate tours of all buildings of the German International School Washington, D.C. are also available. Please sign up at 301.767.3807 or
