Friday, August 14th marks a memorable moment for the ISR community. The ISR Kindergarten on Niederkasseler Kirchweg officially opened its doors! Invited to the ceremony were all prospective and enrolled parents and their children, press, and special guests. Everyone was invited to enter the outdoor garden and celebrate the ribbon ceremony together on location in Niederkassel.

A sunny afternoon for a beautiful ceremony
The afternoon began at 15:30 for parents and teachers to meet and mingle, sparkling beverages were served, and the weather certainly played its part!
Once everyone had joined the ceremony in the children’s garden, the ribbon-cutting began. The ceremony was kicked off by Düsseldorf’s Mayor, Thomas Geisel, himself, where he invited 3 lucky students to help him in the ribbon-cutting.
Throughout the afternoon, there were kids games, entertainment from not just one, but two clowns, and some incredible live music. Speeches were given by the Owner of ISR, Peter Soliman, the Japanese Consul General, Mr. Iwama, and of course, Düsseldorf’s Mayor, Thomas Geisel.
The atmosphere shined as bright as the little future leaders enrolled at ISR Kindergarten, as they played and hopped happily throughout the playground and the entire interior of the Kindergarten. There was certainly never a dull moment. The children proudly found their seats which were so beautifully tagged with their name, along with the personalized toothbrush holders, and cubby holes.
At 17:00 the evening kicked off with some delicious appetizers that both the parents and the children adored. I mean, really, who doesn’t love Nutella and banana wrapped in a pancake and served on a slate slab?! There were wraps, falafels, salmon burgers, fritters, fresh fruit, and so much more!
Once all bellies were full and the children were ready to wind down, the incredibly talented entertainment staff continued to serenade the guests with their music. A perfect end to a wonderful afternoon celebrating the opening ceremony of the ISR Kindergarten.
Now, all that was left was for the little ones to hit the hay and prepare their knapsacks for a fresh new beginning at ISR Kindergarten the following Monday morning.
A very happy start to the new school season for all parents and children!
