Everyday in Contact with Nature
Nature is a place of discovery and offers the most wonderful experience. Therefor, a regular trip to nature promotes child development in a special way. 
Children want, and should be allowed to move. That's why we go out into the fresh air with them at least once a day: short walks through the forest, trips to the farm or to the beautiful playgrounds in Bottmingen. In addition, the children can play every day in our huge garden and courtyard.  
Once a week, the children spend a whole day in nature on our forest day.

 

Healthy Meals Prepared by Ourselves From Fresh and Seasonal Ingredients
We understand that healthy nutrition is the base for a healthy child. 

Your children need proper nutrients to stay healthy and to grow up strong. Nutrition for children can also help establish a foundation for healthy eating habits and nutritional knowledge that your child can apply throughout their life.

In our kitchen, the meals are always freshly prepared by our team. In order for the children to experience cooking, they can help us with the preparation whenever possible.

We Foster Physical Development 

We consider it very important that children develop their motor skills and feel healthy. This occurs through singing, playing music, dancing, running and playing football, and by engaging with the outdoor playgrounds.

In addition, a music and movement teacher creates a weekly program at Villa Märliwald.

We Foster the Natural Joy of Learning
Selected topics such as animals, colors, seasons, festivals, movement, etc. accompany us for 5 - 6 weeks and are integrated into the daily routine.

We encourage the children - depending on their age and step by step - to take on everyday tasks independently, such as put on and take off your shoes, put away your plate after lunch, wash your hands, tidying up toys, brushing your teeth and many other things. 
Small successes in independence allow children to grow and promote self-efficacy.
