In 2007 Penny Mantz and her daughter Clare opened a private nursery and kindergarten, run according to the principles of Maria Montessori. A second preschool was opened in Possartstreet 18 in 2013 to meet the high demand for our quality education.

The owners of Am Sternenwinkel are all qualified educators. This guarantees a balanced and child orientated pedagogic approach. We strive to offer the children entrusted to us the very best every day.
