Current information


Since August 2008, the "littlest ones" (1 year to 2.9 years) have also found their place in the municipality of Gechingen in their own kindergarten.

Up to 10 children per group may attend the facility each day. We offer place sharing,

so you can register your children for between 2 and 5 days a week.

Your children are the focus of our attention. We create a structured daily routine for the children in a family setting.

They receive our appreciation, they are given the right to have a say and they can confide in us. Every single child is important to us. We aim to support the children in their mental, social and motor development by providing individual support.

Our educational concept aims to combine education and upbringing.

Our image of the child

  •      Every child is an independent person and is perceived as such
  •      Every child is at the center of our actions
  •      Every child needs their own pace
  •      Every child deserves a great deal of respect and appreciation

"Help me to do it alone!" Maria Montessori

The special feature of the Zauberwald kindergarten is a "multifunctional motor skills center",
that offers many opportunities for movement experiences!




The design of the group rooms offers the children the opportunity to

to go on a journey of discovery, try things out, vary them and combine them in new ways.

Each group room also has a separate bedroom.

Children need rituals and structures in order to find their way safely in everyday life and to give them orientation. There must still be enough space and time to respond to the children's interests, situations, individual needs and special occasions (e.g. birthday parties).

We want to offer the children a daily routine that is structured by fixed times for certain activities. This gives the youngest children in particular a sense of security and orientation.

In addition to a clearly structured daily routine, however, a healthy degree of openness and flexibility is required when working with the little ones. It is also based on the children's needs, such as eating, sleeping (rest) and changing diapers (personal hygiene).

It is important to us that free play plays an important role in the daily routine.

Teamwork with parents

Cooperation with parents

The kindergarten is not only a place for children, but also for their parents. The kindergarten is an institution that complements the family. The aim is for children and parents to feel at home with us. The prerequisite for this is open, honest and trusting cooperation.

It is important to allow parents to participate in kindergarten activities, to listen to their opinions and ideas and to take them seriously.


Once a place has been confirmed, parents are invited to a personal interview at the kindergarten. This interview serves to get to know each other.

Celebrations with parents

Joint celebrations throughout the year allow us to get to know each other and exchange ideas. Parents are encouraged to actively participate in these celebrations and their willingness to do something for their child creates a sense of togetherness.

Letters to parents, invitations, information board

Invitations and letters to parents for certain activities, parties, parents' evenings are kept in written form and passed on to parents. News is posted on the information board in the entrance area.

Development talks, door-to-door talks

Door-to-door talks can take place every day. They serve as a quick exchange between parents and teachers. We offer development talks once a year, or more frequently if required or desired.

Parents' evenings

At the first parents' evening of the kindergarten year, the parents' council is elected and general information is passed on. In the second half of the year, parents are invited to a themed parents' evening.

Parents' Council

The Parents' Council has the task of supporting the educational work in the kindergarten and promoting cooperation between the facility, parents and the provider.
