German classes for foreign-language mothers with childcare for children under school age.
The German course provides basic knowledge of German and important school terminology. This allows the families to be able to support their children better at school. The course is designed for mothers and particularly those with no or very little knowledge of German. The course participants must live in Wettingen. The course takes place at the primary schools Margeläcker and Altenburg. Cost: 5 Fr per morning.
The Wettingen school offers translation services for parent-teacher talks in many languages. The school or parents can call on the services of an interpreter for talks to make sure that the communication is clearly understood for important development and career issues. The interpretation service is free for parents and is financed by the local community. Ask the class teacher or integration office for a suitable interpreter.
