Leipzig International Kindergarten Celebrates its Fifth Birthday

Five years ago, the grounds at Karl-Heine-Str 95 opened its doors to the first generation of Leipzig International Kindergarten students.
This secure, attractive, purpose-built premises featuring a range of indoor rooms, play spaces and resources has since accommodated a growing number of kids from nursery to early years. Our beautifully landscaped and generously proportioned outdoor play-area allows our youngest learners to connect with the natural environment and enjoy a purposefully laid out space for their play. It was precisely in this space that we celebrated half a decade of LIK on Saturday the 31st September 2019.

We had a mini-train, two different jumping castles and a carousel for the kids to enjoy. Free ice-cream at the entrance and a buffet of parents food from spring rolls over falalel to the inevitable variety of potato salads there was enough to keep everyone in good spirits. Drinks were again generously provided by Getränkevertrieb Noack.

In additional to all the rides and jumping castles we also had KESS the entertainer join us to give the kids a fantastic show with bubbles, “snow balls” and confetti canons, not to mention song and dance galore. Kids of all ages were transfixed and even a few parents got reeled into the fun.

The opening remarks from David Smith and Kjersti Nichols, reminded us all of what can be achieved when there is a vision and a strong team. Ms Nichols welcomed students, parents and staff alike and invited us all to appreciate how we have grown in the last five years. She also thanked the wonderful team of dedicated educators we have for their energy and professionalism in their daily work.

Various members of the LIS leadership were also present. Besides the Kindergarten Principal and Head of School, Mr Pessara and Mr Fahrenkamp also joined in the party to show their appreciation for the team and their efforts.
