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 details see our calendar. If you are interested in attending a meetup, please read the description carefully – some of our meetups have sign-up requirements.

PLEASE NOTE OUR LOCATION! We are at the Helen Doron Learning Centre on Berliner Straße in Pankow! We are NOT at the Helen Doron School on Wichertstr. in Prenzlauer Berg, and we are NOT on the Berliner Str. in Wilmersdorf! Please send us a message if you are unsure how to find us!

Pre-School Activity Time
This was our original meetup! It is focused on kids aged 3 to 7. The kids listen to stories, play games, sing songs, and do craft activities and experiments with our group leaders, who are experienced English teachers for children. Kids in this group are old enough to follow verbal instructions and no longer take an afternoon nap, but not yet able to read full sentences in English or German. This group meets WITHOUT parents! This group is always drop-in. For this meetup, we request a donation of 15€ (12€ for members) per child 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, 13187 Berlin-Pankow
Sign-Up Policy: This is a drop-in group! You can attend anytime without notice (but you can also check out our Calendar page to confirm that we are meeting, or contact us with any questions).

Schoolkids ELA (English Language Arts) Meetup
This is a meetup for readers ages 7 and up. The kids do reading, writing and speaking projects and play language games with our group leaders, who are professional English teachers for children. Kids in this group are able to read full sentences in either German or English (typically they have completed 1st grade in a German school, but we have had 1st graders in the class who are strong readers). This group sometimes (but not always) requires a commitment of multiple sessions to allow the kids to complete more complex projects. For this meetup, we request a donation of 15€ (12€ for members) per child per session 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, 13187 Berlin-Pankow
Sign-up Policy: This group sometimes requires a commitment of multiple sessions! Check out our Calendar page or contact us to find out more.

Toddler Hour
This is a special meetup especially for the little ones aged 1-3. Our trained group leaders sing songs, read picture books and play simple games with the toddlers and their parents. For this meetup, we request a donation of 3€ (for non-members) per child.
Time: Saturdays 15:15 – 16:15
Location: Helen Doron English Learning Centre, Berliner Str. 118, 13187 Berlin-Pankow
Sign-up Policy: This is a drop-in group, but it only meets once a month! Check out our Calendar page or contact us to find out when we are meeting.

Parents’ Coffee Time
Sometimes some of our parents will head next door to have coffee at the Milchmann café and chat while their children are busy with other meetups. Ask us at at the reception desk if you are interested!
Times: Saturdays 13:30 – 15:00
Location: Meet at the Learning Centre after kids are dropped off.
Sign-up Policy: Come to the Learning Centre and see who else wants to head next door!
