At Kinderhaus Wurzelzwerge, we care for children from the age of one until they start school.
We work according to the "life-based approach" and therefore look at everything from the child's life and experience. In this way we can prepare the children for future demands in their lives. It includes methodical-didactic education and upbringing.
The development of cognitive skills, also with regard to the current and future life of the children, finds its concrete attention in the life-based approach.
We practice a democratic-partnership style of education.
In the life-related didactic position, the principle of experiential education and thus, in terms of learning theory, discovery-based learning is the main focus:

  • little directing,
  • allowing for multiple paths and outcomes,
  • relying on initiative,
  • encouraging action,
  • avoiding only verbal communication

The focus is on the child as an active creator of his or her life.
In our work, we are guided by what is significant in the current lives of our children.
We strive to build a positive, trusting relationship with all children.
This relationship is based on respect and mutual trust, because emotional security and affection form the basis for collective learning processes and for the development towards independence.
The special view of the child is expressed in the fact that the importance and knowledge of the individuality of the children and their different developmental courses is a decisive prerequisite for working in the life-based approach:

  • the children learn to take responsibility for themselves and others
  • they learn rules of living together
  • they learn about life in the community and experience respect and recognition of their own personality
  • life and learning are oriented towards the basic needs and present interests of the children.
  • children are active learners and learn in social contexts
  • they learn through playful activities and active play
  • children have the right to recognition and individuality

Life-related kindergarten work is planned, prepared and followed up.
In doing so, we consider the interests of the children as a group, as well as those of the individual child.
We carry out targeted learning opportunities, these promote mental agility, imagination and creativity. Also what is required in the school area, such as;
own activity, willingness to perform as well as well-developed social skills.
