The Children's Multilingualism Centre is a non-profit organisation. We are a team of experts and parents concerned with multilingualism.
The Children's Multilingualism Centre developed at the end of 2002 out of the project KIKUS – language advancement GERMAN (+ mother tongue) at preschool and primary school age. This had been running successfully in Munich since 1998 and was carried out throughout the German speaking countries at the same time.

• Our main aim is to make language and education accessible to all children, giving them equal opportunities.
• We advocate the appreciation of all languages and go under the assumption that multilingualism is an asset to the community.
• We are convinced that such language appreciation encourages integration and promotes cross-cultural competence.
• Our overriding aim is to create a sustainable future on a social and educational level.
