The Montessori Children's House " Die kleinen Strolche" e.V. is an initiative of parents. We have two groups with a total of 35 children . The " Krabbelkäfergruppe" , a group of 10 children aged 0-3 years and the " Dinogruppe" , a group with 25 children aged 3-6 years . Both groups work integrative. In 2010, we have begun to expand the concept of our institution according to pedagogies of  Maria Montessori  and gradually establish a Montessori Children's House .


In our children's house are both for the "Krabbelkäfer" as well as for the "Dinogruppe" per a group room with a directly adjacent side room. Each group has a separate laundry room. The design of the scope is aligned in both groups, depending on the level of development and interests of  the children.  In addition to the Montessori materials  is also different  employment opportunities available. In the  gym, the kids always have the opportunity to try themselves in various ways: climb, jump, hop, build, romp, run ... alone, with friends or as Guided lowered! The "heart" of our house is our "mud room". Due to the various perception deals with shaving cream, water, sand, cream, color, or different natural materials, the children learn a wide range of sensory delights.

Activity also requires rest periods. In the "cuddling and reading corners" the children have the oppertunity to calm down. In a tranquil atmosphere, the children have to look at the possibility of picture books or listen to stories. Bed- and withdrawal options, see the children in our two-bedroom apartments. In one of the rooms also a "Snoezelecke" is integrated, which invites you to relax and dream.

Every day, the children get a fresh meal, which is cooked by our two cooks.

Teamwork with parents

The partnership with parents is very important in setting up with us. Since we are a parents' initiative, is parenting the official employer. Elterninitiative primarily means that parents are more than in other kindergartens usually involved in the daily affairs of the children's home. The cooperation is very important for us. We want parents who get involved within their means in the daily life of the children's home and create together with the team a positive atmosphere in which parents, teachers and especially the children feel comfortable. Each family is committed per Kinderhaus year 12 hours on so-called parents to afford services. These services parents can be quite different: to make driving services and / or accompaniment on outings, design their own actions with the children, internships, assistance with summer cleaning, shopping with the kids ... There is a friendly open and informal atmosphere between the teachers and parents. A close cooperation between all involved in education is a basic requirement in order to support the development of children the best possible way.


We work according to the principles of Maria Montessori. The central point of the Montessori - pedagogy is respect for the child's personality and the attitude of the educator towards the child.  Brings you meet the individual child esteem, patience, understanding, respect, restraint and love. From birth, each child carries a "inner blueprint" in itself, its own development potential. The object of the educator is to allow the child to exploit this potential for development. The natural urge of every child to develop by itself, the teacher takes into account, in that it is the child a companion. They created the environment so interesting that it corresponds to the learning of the child hunger and that the child can usefully work with the existing material.  One of the main tasks of the educator, among other things, the precise observation of every child to know the current needs and interests, and the level of development of the child, support it accordingly and can promote.  She is the contact person and gives assistance, if this is requested by the child. It helps the child, but does not intervene prematurely in his actions, keeping interference to other away from him.  Above all, they respected the desire of the child to want to do everything themselves, offering him the opportunity to become gradually independent of the adults.  For us it is important always to develop and expand our expertise in particular in the field of Montessori education. we use regularly training offers a wide range of institutions. By events, we get new ideas. There is an exchange and develop
