The privately funded primary school, with all day supervision, awakes children’s curiosity and interest in learning. Louisenlund, from primary school through to graduation (IB or Abitur), offers the opportunity for children to benefit from one pedagogical concept for their entire school career.
The Primary School is situated in beautiful surroundings on the banks of the Schlei fjord, between Schleswig and Eckernfoerde. In some of the most attractive countryside in Schleswig-Holstein, children learn the basic skills of reading, writing and Mathematics, as well as developing their natural creativity in the Arts and Music. From Year 1 onwards emphasis is laid on the STEM, with a particular focus on Science, Technology and Mathematics.
Louisenlund’s pedagogical concept allows children individualised, independent learning with room to develop the skills of research and discovery. Academic staff function as “coaches”, working side by side with the children as they make their own discoveries. The pedagogical concept is based on the ideas of Maria Montessori and Kurt Hahn, combined with the most recent findings of educational research studies. The ideas of the nationwide foundation “Haus der Kleinen Forscher” (Young Scientists) play an important role in the children’s learning. Staff are continually looking for ways to encourage children’s natural curiosity and to integrate this into the curriculum.
The Primary School Louisenlund develops personality and nurtures talent. Activity-orientated and experience-based learning form the basis of our learning and teaching aims, with the children themselves at the centre of the process.
Is English taught in the Primary School?
From day 1 children become familiar with the English language through playing English games and frequent visits from native speakers.
With the new research building of the Louisenlund primary school, an innovative and highly modern learning location has emerged on the educational campus. The open learning landscape is a living, learning and development space in which learning is made possible with all the senses. Whether in a group or for individual work, in the workshop or the playground - the new research world offers plenty of space to adapt to the individual needs of primary school pupils and includes areas of concentration and relaxation.
The unique combination of pedagogy and architecture in the new primary school research building opens up learning spaces for pupils that are as diverse as learning itself. Two spacious, light-flooded learning landscapes are the ideal environment for the individual learning of the children. At modern individual workstations, primary school pupils work independently in structured learning arrangements and thus become architects of their own learning. As learning companions, teachers support the pupils in co-constructive learning processes in the spirit of Maria Montessori's "Help me to do it myself".
Cooperative phases in comfortable group rooms promote the children's ability to work in a team and to communicate. A play and recreation area invites children to relax, read and play and is the starting point for the extensive and varied extra-curricular afternoon activities.
The new building is the logical architectural implementation of our unique pedagogical concept and the ideal place to learn, perform and live.

Lessons are held in the mornings, from 8.05 am until 12.05 pm, followed by a wide variety of activities in the afternoon. Optional supervision on the school campus is available all day, continuing into the evening, outside lesson times.
A healthy breakfast and lunch are available at school, if required, before and after lessons. After lunch time is set aside for homework and for individual music lessons or sport. This is followed by extra-curricular activities with an emphasis on Nature and Technology, as well as music, creativity and the school farm.
The school shuttle bus collects children in the mornings from Eckernfoerde and Schleswig and returns them home in the afternoons. Thus, enabling children to attend school in one of the most beautiful parts of Schleswig-Holstein without tedious transport problems for parents.
The most valuable thing we can give our children is successful start in life.Andrea Blady, Art teacher, Primary School
