Current information


Welcome to the Catholic kindergarten Ulrika

We are a five-group facility for children from the age of one.

We see ourselves as a place of encounter with many holistic areas of
development, education and support.

Social learning
personality development
Participation for democratic co-determination
Educational offers (orientation plan)
Rooms/materials that motivate self-education
Forest and nature experiences, own garden
Space for a wide variety of movement opportunities
And much more...

Our image of the child can be clearly seen in the following "guiding principles":

A child is not a vessel that is filled, but a fire that wants to be lit!

We know that the child is an actor, wants to be and should be an actor in its development!


Implementation of our pedagogical work:

Each child has a fixed place in his or her group. The pedagogical offers/impulses take place within the group, across groups or in age-, development- and interest-specific groups.

During free play time, the children decide freely according to their interests and needs. "The child's play is the bridge to reality." (Bruno Bettelheim)

Participation has a high priority in our work.

Children are the creators of their everyday life in the kindergarten, we educators give them the framework for this!

Participation in the kindergarten means that the children are involved in decision-making processes in the daily kindergarten routine. They develop to perceive and express their own ideas, wishes and needs and to stand up for them.




We have a total of 5 group rooms in our facility.

Three of them are for children from the age of 3. Each of these rooms has an intensive room. In addition, there is our crèche area with 2 group rooms and a common intensive room. The bedrooms with connecting doors are directly adjacent to the group rooms.

Adjacent to the corridor is our washroom for all children and a nappy-changing room with a very small toilet.

The cloakrooms for all groups are also located in the hallway area.

The entrance area is used as a play area according to the situation.

In addition, there is a movement room with a climbing wall, gymnastics bench, movement elements, scarves, balls, balancing boards, etc..


Outdoor Facilities

Outdoor area

In the outdoor area, the children have many opportunities to practise and develop their motor skills. They have a large climbing frame with slide, a suspension bridge, a ground trampoline, a bird's nest swing, horizontal bars, sand and mud play area, as well as an open-air stage, etc. at their disposal.

The children also find a variety of vehicles, stilts, different balls, sand toys etc. in our outdoor area.

There is a separate area for our youngest children (one to two years olds) with a playhouse in the sand area, space for vehicles and a slide. Despite this "separation",

they always have the opportunity to explore the play area of the "big ones" in the company of an educator.

In front of the rooms for our youngest there is a small courtyard area for them, where they can play ball, sand, experiment with water in the summer etc.

The outdoor area is very important to us because we visit it almost every day. The awnings in the courtyard and the trees all around, three of them chestnut trees, provide a lot of shade in summer.
