Who we are

Our Mission

BCN-Kinder is a non-profit organisation founded in 2002 as a parents’ association. Our multicultural nursery project was initiated by a group of German and Catalan parents looking for a multilingual and pedagogic alternative to current education.

Our goals are:

  • To create a quiet space in which children feel safe and where everyone’s needs and rhythms are respected.
  • To support children in the development of their capacities, autonomy and self-esteem.
  • To promote multilingualism and understanding in a multicultural environment.
  • To promote openness towards our social context and surroundings by exploring the city as much as possible.
  • To promote an appreciation for the environment by having regular contact with nature.

How we work

Groups and Staff

Who, when, where


Baby Group (10-18 months):

Our Baby Group is intended as an educational room where babies are provided with the opportunity to discover and feel the world around them. Our nursery school teachers help the children develop their autonomy step by step by organising music and art activities that enhance their senses and motor skills.

This group includes up to 12 children and is supervised by two nursery school teachers, who also have the support of an intern. The opening hours for the Baby Group are from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. or 3 p.m.


Group A (2.5 – 5 years old) & Group B (between 18 months and 2.5 years old):

In this group we focus on the children’s individual interests, enjoying every day in a playful way based on creative activities and themed projects. Our teachers promote an appropriate environment for free play, symbolic games and music and art activities that enhance the children’s motor skills and that they freely choose according to their own wishes. Through contact with teachers and other children, the children learn to interact with one another, developing both their personal and collective identity. 

Our multilingual Groups A & B work closely together. Children are free to decide in which activity and group they want to participate in – depending on where they feel more comfortable and with which group they relate to the most.

These groups have a maximum of 16 children each and are respectively supervised by two nursery school teachers, who also have the support of an intern. The opening hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 1:45 p.m.


Afternoon Group (between 18 months and 5 years)

This group offers the children who are enrolled in the morning groups the possibility to extend their day at BCN-Kinder. Our teachers continue with their activities as usual, giving children the opportunity to forge positive relationships with children of different ages.

This group includes up to 21 children and is supervised by 2-3 nursery school teachers (depending on the group size), who also have the support of an intern. The opening hours are from 1:45 p.m. to 4:45 p.m.

Beginning with the school year 2017-2018 (September 2017), we’ll offer an extended pick-up time until 5:45 p.m.

In order to accomplish the goals of our educational project, we rely on our dedicated team of experienced nursery school teachers.

For the school year 2017-2018, our team consists of six female teachers and one male teacher. All our employees are highly qualified specialists who feel at home in the multicultural, multilingual environment of our nursery school.

Our Team:

Carmen Martínez and Emily Begrich are currently the teachers in Group A.

Alexandra Morral and Stephanie Polo are currently the teachers in Group B.

Núria Rojas Fierro and Sabine Beister are currently the teachers in our Baby Group.

Leonie Cieslinski is the teacher looking after the Afternoon Group together with one teacher of each one of our morning groups.

Alexandre Siemon Ros is responsible for managing BCN-Kinder and the mediator between parents, teachers and the Managing Board of our association.
