Current information


The St. Michael kindergarten works according to the partially open concept, which means that the children have a fixed home group, but they can still play throughout the facility during their care.

The fixed home group meets every day during the morning circle. During the morning circle, relevant and important topics such as festivals, fire safety and birthdays are introduced and celebrated.

The St. Michael kindergarten has two regular groups

    Rainbow group regular group opening hours Mon.-Fri. 7:30-12:30 & Mon.,Tues.,Thurs. additionally & 14-16h

Outdoor Facilities

The St. Michael Kindergarten has a large and varied garden

This is listed below with its play equipment:

  •     a climbing frame, this promotes hand-eye coordination, such as the active tensing of muscles
  •     a seesaw, which encourages strength dosage, how much strength do I have to exert to be able to actively seesaw
  •     two swings, this encourages strength dosing, as well as concentration, how do I have to move my feet so that I have active momentum to swing myself.
  •     a large sandpit, in which the children can train their tactile sense, how does the sand feel when it is dry, how does it feel when it is wet? The children also learn to build something together (sandcastles)
  •     In summer, the children can actively play with water, cool off, explore quantities (how much fits into this mold, etc.).
  •     The children can pursue their urge to move in the garden, as there is plenty of space to run and test their strength. (the children can run once around the kindergarten)
  •     The children can balance on the slackline, training their balance and muscle strength
  •     The children actively use our vehicles (Kettcar, bus, balance bike...) to train their balance
  •     In summer, we plant fruit and vegetables in our garden so that the children become aware of food, where it comes from and in which season it grows. Afterwards

The St. Michael kindergarten pursues a number of goals:

  •     We work according to the situational approach, which means that the children are encouraged according to their interests and motivated in the situation.
  •     Our work is based on the Baden- Württemberg orientation plan, education, care and upbringing are linked to this.
  •     We work in a partially open concept, which means that there are two fixed core groups in which we meet in the morning circle to discuss and celebrate important and relevant topics such as the introduction of festivals and birthdays. Before and after the morning circle, the children are allowed to pursue their interests in free play.
  •     We work with functional corners and functional rooms, which means that the children can decide for themselves in which functional area they would like to play (building & constructing, movement education, ...)
