Welcome to the Chocolate Butterflies After School Hort!

Chocolate Butterflies, the oldest German-English kindergarten in Munich, is breaking new ground after more than 20 great, exciting and successful years – we have been moving house a few yards down the road and expanded in the new building, where we are also offering an after school Hort group for 15 children.

What we are looking for:

  • school children of the elementary school at Gotzinger Platz in need of a Hort place
  • parents willing to participate in Hort life and to be part of a lively, international community 

What we are offering: 

  • a loving and professional childcare by trained educators
  • a bilingual environment throughout daily Hort life and more than 20 years of experience in bilingual childcare
  • an open-minded and familiar atmosphere
  • a healthy lunch and a qualified homework supervision
  • long opening hours from end of school to 5:30pm
  • full-day holiday daycare from 07:30am to 5:30pm, special activities and field trips during the school holidays (with no more than 30 closing days per year)
  • an experienced, welcoming and open, international parents community with strong communal values and spirit
  • a deep rootedness in our family-friendly district of Sendling

Chocolate Butterflies’ concept is based on a situational educational concept with elements of the Montessori educational theory. Our focus is on individual care; building self-esteem, developing social skills, and helping the children to find pleasure in their accomplishments. They are encouraged to act in a self-reliant and responsible way and supported in developing a sense of their own time management. Music, sports, festivities and all kinds of outside activities play an essential part in our daily life.

German and English speech development is taught in a playful and age appropriate manner and free of pressure. The teachers – one native English and one native German speaker – only use their native language in teaching the children.

As a parents initiative we are a non-profit association and are being funded by the City department of education and sports.
