What your child needs
We offer much more than "just" childcare. We offer loving care in a child-friendly and family atmosphere.
Our team is committed to the development of each child and encourages the little ones to discover their world with joy and curiosity.
We attach great importance to the excellent qualifications of our team - both in the basic training as "specialist childcare", as well as in the continuous personal development of all employees through the acquisition of recognized additional qualifications in the field of child education and upbringing.
Varied and healthy meals that we prepare ourselves from fresh and, if possible, seasonal ingredients.
Regular exercise activities (exercise and dance) outdoors and in kindergarten.
Creative activities: drawing and painting, singing and music
Activities to strengthen self-confidence, confidence in self-efficacy and social skills
Everyday in contact with nature
Short walks , complete day excursions or weekly in the forest
Parks around, the zoo, the farm, and the forest are experienced with all senses. Because nature is the most wonderful experience and discovery space. A regular stay in nature promotes child development in a special way. Above all, sensory perception, motor skills, creativity, and imagination are stimulated and trained.
