Introduction/specifics

This is what we stand for:

We see every child as an independent personality who curiously explores, discovers and understands their world.

One child is loud and raging, the other is calm and withdrawn; every child is different and yet they are all the same.

That is why it is our goal to support and accompany every child in their development with a lot of patience, appreciation, respect and empathy.

Group description:

We are a two-group kindergarten with one group of butterflies and one group of dragonflies.

Our groups can accommodate 20 children at a time.

The team:

We are 4 part-time specialists and changing interns, who complete part of their training with us.

Rooms

We have 2 cozy rooms in which your child can linger.

We also have a wonderful playground and a small intensive care room.

Our kindergarten has another special feature, we share our premises with the Waldorf Kindergarten Sonnenblume.

There are various areas that invite you to learn, discover, experience, try out, paint, do handicrafts and much more.

 

Outdoor Facilities

Our playground is very large and we have plenty of shade even in summer.

We enjoy it and that's why we like to go out often.

Our playground has a sandpit, a slide, two swings, a large climbing frame, a tunnel and plenty of space to run and play.

Daily Schedule

Our everyday kindergarten life:

The delivery time is from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., after which the entrance door is locked.

During the delivery time, the children are in their respective group rooms until after the morning circle.

Our morning circle starts with a welcoming song, then we clap the names, count the children present and think together who is missing. Then the date, day of the week and season are named on our calendar with the children.

Finally, we discuss the daily routine together.

After the morning circle, the groups are opened and, in addition to the free game, there are group-wide offers.

The first pick-up time is at 12:00p.m.

You also can pick up your child from the kindergarten from 12:00 p.m. to 12:30 p.m. or from 1:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Between 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. there is a second snack break and the doors of the kindergarten are closed.

Our kindergarten children are divided into four different age groups; it is always the age groups that come to school together.

The youngest children are our lucky beetles, then come the fawns, the clever foxes and the bear children (preschoolers).

The following offers are carried out across groups:

Monday: bookworm (bear children)

Tuesday: bear offer

Wednesday: duck land (clever fox)

Thursday: preschool (bear children) creative and "snack day" (all children)

Friday: exercise (in the hall / in the forest / walk) (all children)

We orientate ourselves with our offers, among other things, to the church annual cycle and celebrate with the children festivals such as: Christmas, Easter, St. Martin, Nicholas and birthdays.

Food

Your child has two periods of time in which they can freely decide when they want to eat; 

once in the morning until 10:00 a.m. and the second vesper time is at 12:30 p.m.

Your child can drink from us, either tea or water.

Quality Assurance

By creating our concept, we entered a development process that cannot be over.

We keep rethinking the circumstances and have visions of how, for example, our rooms can be redesigned.

That is why our work on the concept is never finished.

It will keep us busy.

In this written elaboration, we have put together essential information, goals, content and working methods to create a concept in order to give an insight into our everyday activities and actions. We are aware that this concept requires regular review, addition and change. This gives us the chance to respond to the child's world and to be able to offer an up-to-date educational concept.

We all regularly take part in further training courses in order to meet the growing demands in our profession and in relation to the children.

Cooperations

For us, the cooperation with parents, the school and other authorities is very important.

It is the basis of good children's development.

Only if everyone accompanies the children on their way together, helps and supports them, can we create a good basis for their future.

Teamwork with school

Our kindergarten works with various institutions.

These are:

Doctors, advice centers, occupational therapists, technical schools, early intervention centers, health authorities, integration officers, youth welfare offices, child protection officers, churches, speech therapists, music schools and other schools.

 

Teamwork with parents

Parental work and educational partnership:

When we talk about parental work, we must always start from the basic idea that education in kindergarten complements and supports the upbringing of the child in the family.

Therefore, an intensive and trusting cooperation between parents, legal guardians and educators is very important and essential.

Our common educational work should be based on mutual trust, tolerance and understanding and a certain amount of openness.

For many activities (summer party, St. Martin's parade, Christmas market, flea market ...) in kindergarten, we need the parents' commitment.

Our information is passed on to the legal guardians in the form of letters from parents, parents' evenings, development talks, as well as in discussions when bringing and picking up the children.

We have a large information wall in the hallway, on which various notices from us, the parents' council and also from the parents are possible.

At the entrance to the butterfly group and the dragonfly group, there is a pin board on the left-hand side with the most important and latest information.

In the entrance area there is also a post stand for letters from parents.

There is also the possibility of making an appointment for a conversation with the management or the educators at any time.

Specifics

Our kindergarten has another special feature;

Since January 2011 we have been sharing the playground and an additional room for our group-wide activities with the Waldorf Kindergarten Sonnenblume.

Common protection concept of the kindergarten sunflower and the kindergarten grasshopper

We, the employees of both kindergartens, have been in conversation for more than 10 years.

Together we discuss and decide on the use of the space available to us.

Everything happens in consultation, consideration, cooperation and assistance with and with one another.
