Current information


The Spatzennest is located in the heart of Allershausen. It is quietly and idyllically situated next to the Volksfestplatz, between the Glonn and the Mühlbach, surrounded by meadows and fields. Since 1992, children from the age of 3 until they start school have been attending the facility. Since September 2021, the Spatzennes houses 6 groups with approximately 134 children and staff. They find various additional rooms in the building and the children use the extensive garden area every day.



In our numerous, stimulatingly designed rooms, the children find various play and activity opportunities. Three rooms are equipped with play galleries. These rooms are the children's preferred place to play and stay in their home groups.

Lunch is served in the kitchen and in the groups together with the children.

Intensive rooms

An intensive room is available for each group. These rooms are used for small group work, science experiments, pre-school German lessons or activities with the pre-school children.

Creative and work room

Here music, relaxation, painting, handicrafts and other activities take place.


Each group uses the movement room on a fixed day for running games, movement building or psychomotoric movement units. Early musical education, conducted by a trained teacher from the Ampertal Music School, takes place here as an additional offer for all pre-school children. In addition, parents have the opportunity to register their child for a dance programme offered by an external provider on Monday afternoons.

"Childhood = Adventure Time"

"Full of the joys of life, we conquer the world together with all our senses."

This is our mission statement and our pedagogical orientation. We implement this with love and commitment. It is especially important to us to accept each child with his or her personality in an appreciative way. We are allowed to accompany, strengthen, encourage and guide your child on a part of its life journey. This is based on mutual give and take and a trusting educational partnership with the parents. We discover the diversity of life and learning with fun and joy.

We have been an inclusive kindergarten since 2021, opening up (in projects, times for visits to other groups, mixing of children in the garden, gathering group in the mornings and late afternoons, ...) both internally and externally (fixed visiting times at the senior citizens' home, presence at community festivals, excursions to the surrounding area - playgrounds, church ...).

All this happens with a certain degree of freedom, co-determination and warmth of heart. With play, fun and adventure and enough time to be happy.

In this way, defeats, mistakes or conflicts are not another problem, but a step that we will take together on the stairs of life by trying to find solutions on our own.


The Spatzennest team consists of Marion Ellenbrock, the kindergarten management and the qualified staff in the core groups. You are welcome to get to know us personally at the open day.


We employ educators and nursery nurses and offer a wide range of training opportunities in the Spatzennest so that our children can also rely on good staff in the future.

Teamwork with parents

Educational partnership

Every year (beginning of October), a new Parents' Council is elected. We treat parents and their family culture with respect and make this clear. We see the coming together of many nartions as enrichment and as one of our most valuable resources. It is very important for us to exchange ideas and you have various opportunities to speak and act with us. Your views and opinions are of interest to us. We are therefore always looking forward to the evaluation of the annual parent questionnaire.


"Being different is normal. The difference of all people is not a problem to be solved, but normality. The system is adapted to this normality and not vice versa.

    Everyone who enters the Sparrow's Nest should feel welcome.
    It is normal to be different.

  • Children are unprejudiced and accept other people as they are. They realise that some children are different, but just as lovable. The children learn that it is important to support each other, e.g. an already experienced child helps a new child, the older ones help the younger ones, ...
  • In our Spatzennest there are also often children with special abilities and gifts. Examples are: ADHD stands for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Syndrome, ADS stands for Attention Deficit Syndrome (without hyperactivity), HSP stands for Highly Sensitive Person, various forms of giftedness, ..... At this point we would also like to mention left-handedness.
  •  We work in increased team cooperation and with a wide network of different disciplines.
