Meetups

Our core club time is Saturdays 13:30 – 15:00 at the Helen Doron Learning Centre in Pankow – just around the corner from the Pankow train station. (If you think Pankow is too far from you, check Google or the BVG website – you may be surprised! We are less than 40 minutes from S Grunewald.) We are typically there every Saturday except for Saturdays before, during and after school holidays. For all non-core-hour meetups we typically need 7 steady attendees to cover costs – check with us to see if a meetup is on!

Pre-School Activity Time
This was our very first meetup! Kids ages 1-6 get together at our Pankow clubhouse (younger kids with parents, older kids without) and listen to stories, play games, and do craft activities with our professional group leaders. For this meetup, we request a donation of 15€ (12€ for members) to cover the group leader’s fee, supplies and rent.
Times: Saturdays 13:30-15:00 (focus on older kids), NEW 15:15 – 16:15 (focus on younger kids)
Location: Helen Doron English Learning Centre, Berliner Str. 118, Pankow

Schoolkids ELA (English Language Arts) Meetup
This is a meetup for readers ages 7 and up. A professional English teacher leads the group in reading, writing and speaking projects while keeping an eye on grammar and vocabulary. This is a great meetup for English speakers who attend German schools. This meetup begins on November and will require a 5-weekend commitment – requested donation of 75€ (60€ for members) to cover the group leader’s fee, supplies and rent.
Time: Saturdays 13:30-15:00
Location: Helen Doron English Learning Centre, Berliner Str. 118, Pankow

Parents’ Coffee Time
This is a chance for parents to have coffee (often at Milchmann next door to our clubhouse) and chat while their children are busy with other meetups.
Times: Saturdays 13:30 – 15:00
Location: Meet at the Learning Centre after kids are dropped off and see who else wants to head next door!

Parents and Bumps Meetup
This is a week-day morning chance for expectant moms and parents of babies and toddlers not yet in KiTa to meet up, have some coffee, and chat while the kids play. For this meetup we ask for a 3€ donation from non-members. We are looking for a volunteer to help facilitate this group!
Times: TBD
Location: Helen Doron English Learning Centre, Berliner Str. 118, Pankow

We are hoping to offer more meetups! Please contact us if you have an idea for a meetup.
