Introduction/specifics

Who we are:

Our kindergarten is located in the Butzbach district of Ebersgöns, surrounded by fields, forests and meadows. We can care for up to 20 children from the age of 3 until they start school.

What we offer:

  • Nature based pedagogy
  • Small group of children
  • Familiar atmosphere
  • Living and learning in and from nature

What makes us special?

The new concept of a nature kindergarten.

Food

Our lunch is delivered fresh daily by Tischlein Deck Dich. For breakfast, which the children bring from home, we also pay attention to sugar-free and chewable foods.

Basics

The premises and our outdoor area as well as the immediate proximity to fields, forests and meadows offer very good conditions for the concept of a nature kindergarten. The implementation of our pedagogical work is based on two fundamental pillars.

One of the two pillars is nature education. Learning from nature, is learning first hand Three days a week we are out with the children in the forest, field and meadows. The natural environment offers space and play material in abundance e.g. sticks, stones, leaves, moss cones, etc.). Nature with all its inhabitants and recurring rhythms in the course of the year provide profound sensory impressions.

The second pillar is Kneipp pedagogy. This includes 5 areas: Life order (rituals, structures), water applications (treading water at the stream, dew treading on the meadow), medicinal herbs (herbal spiral), movement (forest days, walks) and balanced nutrition (healthy breakfast, cooking days). Both approaches are very well combined and intertwine. The children learn in and with nature. Daily outdoor activities are a matter of course for us in almost any weather.

 

Teamwork with school

For us, preschool work begins when the children enter kindergarten. In our meetings with the first day of school, the children can try out their new role and prepare for the new phase of their lives. Here, topics specific to everyday life play an important role. These are not predetermined and are worked out together in the children's group.


Joint appointments (visits/talks) with the Gönser elementary school, annual excursions and an overnight stay are fixed rituals in this last year of kindergarten.
