We are guided by the three principles of Maria Montessori:

"Children are different!"

"Help me to do it myself. Show me how to do it. Don't do it for me. I can and will do it on my own. Have patience to understand my ways. They may be longer, maybe I need more time because I do wants to make several attempts. Make mistakes and efforts, because I can learn from them. "

"The child is the builder of the future man, and there is no one who was not formed by the child that it once was itself."


In our children's home, educational specialists who have completed a qualification work as state-recognized educators who are in possession of a Montessori diploma or are in the process of training this additional qualification.

One specialist also has a qualification as a curative pedagogue, three specialists have additional qualifications in curative education.

Teamwork with parents

Parents are the most important role models for their children and their experts.

Families and daycare centers open up to one another, make their educational ideas and educational offers transparent and mutually enrich one another.

They value each other, recognize the importance of each other's environment for the child and share responsibility for promoting child development.
