School and public holidays 2019/2020

Busy Bees International Preschool follows the Bavarian calendar for public holidays and more or less for Bavarian school holidays. The preschool year runs from beginning of September until the end of August. The school closes for all national and state public holidays, as well as all Busy Bees school holidays.

Busy Bees offers holiday programs during all school holidays except for the Christmas break, one week of the Easter holidays and two weeks in the Summer holidays. These programs are run by the preschool teachers as well as external staff, and offer children a fun, relaxed play-based program that includes a lot of craft, baking, and outdoor play. Holiday programs run from 8:00 – 16:00 daily, cost an additional fee separate to the regular school fees, and require all students to be registered and paid for in advance.
