Students entering BAKS+ classes are expected to understand and speak German—and for older students, read and write German—at an age-appropriate level. Parents of potential new students should contact our directors at baksplus@kinderstube.org if they have questions about whether BAKS+ is likely to be a good fit for their child, in terms of language level.
