Rooms

rooms:

We have a large group room, where the painting and design area is located. Puzzles can be laid and table games played. This room is also used for breakfast. The second large group room has a dolls' corner and a construction corner. There are wooden building blocks and a large Lego box. A cosy picture book area invites you to discover books and to read aloud.          

We use the room at "half height" as a room for movement and senses. Up to five children love to play here alone and let their creativity run free.

We use the large community hall for our movement units and for the school project. Events in which parents participate also take place here.

 

Outdoor Facilities

Outdoor area:

On our outdoor grounds there is a large, densely overgrown playground with a garden house for toys. A climbing tower, a sandbox, two swings, a hill with a slide and various stairs, a seesaw, gym poles and a slide car road complete the offer for the children.

 

Daily Schedule

Daily routine:

The children can come from 7:30 a.m., but should be brought until 8:30 a.m. as a rule. We then arrange a short morning circle with the children and welcome each other. The children learn what is planned for the morning. Afterwards we continue with the free play. Free play means that the child decides on play material, play location, play partner and play duration.

During this free play phase, we offer the children activities related to our current theme, such as

- creative offers

- Talks

- Picture book reviews

- We get to know new songs

- cook and bake

- Exercise games

- Fantasy Travels

- Actions in the field of religious education studies

A further phase is the clean-up phase. By cleaning up together with the children, they learn to take responsibility for the group room, the toys and the materials. After thoroughly cleaning up, we go outside when the weather is good. If it rains, we often do a final circle in the room "at half height".

During the final circle:

- we learn and sing songs

- Exercise games

- Finger games

- Poems

- Kim games (memory games)

- listen to fantasy stories

- Narrative circle

Three days a week, from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m., the children can have breakfast when and with whomever they want. On the other two days we all have breakfast together.

Quality Assurance

Observation and documentation:

The children keep a portfolio folder in which they collect everything that is important to them. We use the booklet "Growing and Maturing" to observe the children holistically. The records of the observations made give us an overview of the individual learning progress of each child. In order to be able to document the language development of the children, we use the "Observation sheet language development from 1 - 6 years". The aim of the observation is to understand the behaviour and experience of the child. They are then the basis for the creation of our projects as well as the creation of individual support offers for each child.

 

Quality assurance:

At present, all day-care centres of our association participate in a further training course on quality management in day-care centres.

 

Cooperations

Cooperation with other institutions:

Below is a list of all institutions with which we work together:

Teamwork with parents

Cooperation with parents:

Children come to the kindergarten from their families as independent beings with very different strengths and preferences. That is why parents are the experts when it comes to the concerns of their children. They help us to get to know and understand their children, especially during the settling-in period.

For the well-being of the children we are committed to a good educational partnership. A family-friendly climate and good cooperation with the parents enable joint action. Parents support us above all where activities could not take place without their help (e.g. maypole decorating and celebrations, summer party etc.).

 

We are pleased if we have aroused your interest and invite you to visit us in our facility.
