The mission of the Central Florida German Playgroup is to provide our children with a positive environment in which they are exposed to German culture, traditions, and language as well as have the opportunity to develop relationships with German-speaking peers with whom they can grow.
Our membership is primarily composed of families with at least one native German-speaking parent and children from birth to age 12. We meet at least twice monthly for large cultural events (such as Nikolausabend, Easter, and St. Martinstag) and smaller events which simply provide the opportunity to come together (such as a fussball game or a picnic at a playground). This playgroup has become more than just another meetup.com group for many of our families. With the cooperation and involvement of each of our members, we have developed a community that has become a large German family when many of our own families are far away. The greatest benefits of this is having the opportunity to raise our own children with the same German language, culture, and traditions that we were.
