Current information


Rainbow Daycare Centre

"Education is not the filling of barrels, but the lighting of flames" - Heraclitus of Ephesus
In order to ignite the flames of each individual child, we see it as our task to find out exactly where we need to hold the match so that the spark of discovery can become a living flame. Together with the children, we go on a search, inform, explain, accompany and encourage them in their individual and collective educational processes.

Head of the centre: Angelika Schmidt 

Deputy head: Sebastian Preußer


Special features:

Education requires a bond: "Only if I can trust will I dare!"

If the child feels safe, accepted and in good hands, it can pursue its urge to explore with an open mind. Reliable caregivers, a regular daily routine, stability in the children's group and structured rooms that offer orientation are of great importance in educational work.

Due to the long opening hours, it is not always possible to have a caregiver around all day. This is why we attach great importance to offering the children reliable caregivers in our various areas when organising the duty rosters. This applies, for example, to early morning supervision, morning meetings with the different age groups, in the rooms, when eating, sleeping, resting and so on.

The accompanied transition from the toddler area to the big house is of particular importance in our daycare centre

Children need peers. But they are naturally also interested in what the "grown-ups" can already do. The older ones are admired and are important role models who favour learning by example. We are always looking for ways to enable our children to make excursions from the toddler area into the world of the grown-ups. This should support their joy of discovery as well as facilitate the later transition. It is important to us to offer the children mutual permeability between all age groups.



In the former primary school building, our centre has been adapted to the needs of children aged 1-6 according to the "Hamburg room design concept". The large, well-organised educational rooms offer plenty of space for up to 70 children. The design of the facility is based on the fundamental idea of our educational concept, which emphasises the importance of children's self-education processes. We always actively support the children in a stimulating environment.


Daily Schedule

Daily routine U3

Structures and rituals in the daily routine help the children to organise a variety of impressions and make them manageable. This helps the children to move around safely and increasingly independently.

07:00 - 09:00 Good morning in this house

We open our daycare centre doors at 7:00 am.

To begin with, we spend time together in the early service area.

Thanks to the age mix during this time, our youngest children socialise across age groups right from the start and get to know the first rooms and teachers from the big house. A nursery teacher from the toddler area ensures a familiar atmosphere when taking over and, if necessary, retreats to the toddler area earlier. At the latest at

8.00 a.m. at the latest, we all make our way to our premises. During the arrival time, there is an opportunity for a brief chat about any special incidents or how your child is feeling. This gives us a good start to the day together.

 From 07:00 Free snack

The children decide when, with whom and where they would like to enjoy their breakfast. They are closely supervised by the nursery teachers and supported in their natural urge to be independent.

07:00 - 11:00 Free play, activities, stimuli, getting to know the rooms, garden, ...

The children experience our premises as a safe retreat.

During the course of the day, the children have many opportunities to socialise and pursue their own interests and plans. Both independent and guided research, discovery and experimentation in a rich, stimulating environment lay the foundation for understanding complex relationships. 

During free play, there is plenty of time for singing and making music every day. They learn with and from each other in a sociable group. Depending on the group constellation and interests, short activities such as sensory experiences, colour matching and much more are also offered in this setting.

are offered. This means that they are already familiar with some of the games, songs and rules before they move into the big house. The children can decide for themselves whether they want to take part in these activities.

11:00 - 12:00 Morning children (pick-up time 12 noon)

After free play, the children go on a discovery tour in the big house or in the garden with a teacher from the toddler area. The morning ends with a final round of finger games and songs.

11:00 - 14:00 Lunch and bedtime

Our lunch is delivered by Apetito. The children get to know a wide range of dishes and become increasingly confident and independent in handling cutlery. How long lunch lasts depends on more than just the dishes. If children are tired and express a desire to go to bed during lunch or even fall asleep in the middle of eating, they are immediately escorted to the bedroom. The sleep phase is organised individually. For some children, it is enough to have a carer in the room or a cuddly toy in their arms, while others need a hand or a cuddle.


Daily routine Ü3

Structures and rituals in the daily routine help the children to organise a variety of impressions and make them manageable. This helps the children to move around safely and increasingly independently.

07:00 - 09:00 - Arrival at the daycare centre

We open our doors at 7.00 am for the early risers. As a rule, children between the ages of 1 and 6 come together here so that they can socialise across age groups right from the start. During the arrival time, there is an opportunity for a brief exchange about special events or your child's state of mind. The rooms on the upper floor are opened shortly after 8.00 a.m. and are freely accessible to all children.

7:00 -10:30 - Free snack time

The children decide for themselves when and with whom they would like to enjoy their breakfast. There is sliced fruit/vegetables prepared by the children on the table every day. They set their place independently and clear away the crockery after eating. Our youngest children are accompanied and supported during breakfast.

09:00 - 09:15 - Short welcome in a large circle

Now that all the children are in the centre, we start our welcome circle together. We begin with a song. We then discuss the course of the day, upcoming activities, projects, matters of the heart, etc.

09:15 - 09:45 - Cross-age project work / age-homogeneous morning meetings

Monday to Wednesday is time for project work. Topics from individual children or small groups are taken up and made accessible to other interested parties. The children work together to find answers, develop a plan and realise ideas. They are accompanied by the teachers and supported if necessary.

On Thursdays and Fridays, age-specific morning meetings take place in which current topics of the individual groups are discussed. The Frogs children (the link between the toddler area and the big house) meet daily in their age group for circle games, singing, music and smaller projects.

09:45 - 13:00 - Free play in our adventure areas and in the garden

Children learn with and from each other. During free play, they have the opportunity to spend time with their friends and pursue their own interests and plans. Play experiences in a rich, stimulating environment with stimuli lay the foundation for understanding complex relationships.

Pick-up times: According to the registration, the children are seen off by the carers at 12:00, 13:00 and 14:00 and accompanied to the gate.

Lunch: Our lunch is delivered by Apetito. It is accompanied by rituals and offers plenty of room for independence. To create a relaxed atmosphere, the children go to lunch at two different times:

Children who sleep 11:00

Children who are resting 12:00/13:00

The children who sleep have their own bedroom with their own blankets, pillows and pictures designed by their parents. They can make themselves really cosy with a cuddly toy they have brought with them.

A carer is always nearby when the children are sleeping to give them a feeling of security. We deliberately offer quiet activities such as ironing bead pictures, quiet table games and looking at picture books to the children who are resting. Some children look for a cosy place to rest and process the impressions and experiences of the morning. We always endeavour to offer the children a structured daily routine that provides security and orientation. However, the times listed are only approximate and depend on the group situation and staffing.

We implement the Baden-Württemberg orientation plan, in which the educational mission is concretised, with the help of the "infans" action concept. The positive view of the child as well as the organisation of early educational processes form the basis for this concept and lead to continuous further development. The aim is to provide the children with a framework in which they can develop all their characteristics, talents, resources and strengths in our open-plan centre.


As colourful as a rainbow, our team is made up of 18 educational specialists, three PIA trainees and one FSJ trainee! Our work focusses on one thing above all: your child and his or her individual support.

Our daycare centre manager, Ms Angelika Schmidt, and deputy manager, Mr Sebastian Preußer, are primarily responsible for this. Their door is always open for all questions, comments and concerns from children, parents, carers and staff. Their areas of responsibility include the organisation and content of the daycare centre. They are also responsible for ensuring consistently high quality childcare, staff development and close cooperation with parents and carers.

Collegial and professional dialogue takes place in regular team meetings, discussion times and pedagogical days. Our expert team takes advantage of the wide range of opportunities for regular training and further education. This ensures that all employees are able to contribute their strengths and professional qualifications to everyday life. An everyday language support worker supports the entire team with suggestions, ideas and projects. As a training centre, we support and accompany various interns and pupils during their training. Two housekeepers and a caretaker round off the staffing.


Cooperation with the Großbettlingen gymnastics and sports club

Since 2015, gymnastics lessons have been held once a week for future schoolchildren and 3- to 4-year-olds together with trainers from TSuGV Großbettlingen. The Württemberg State Sports Association supports cooperation between sports clubs and daycare centres with the special project "Kindergarten & Sports Club Cooperation". The aim is to promote the children's motor, cognitive and social-emotional development as well as their personality. Sport should also be perceived as enjoyable and meaningful. This also applies to children who previously had little affinity with sport and exercise. Funding is available for measures that are carried out jointly by the sports club and the day care centre. The funding is based on an invitation to tender in which the criteria for funding are set out.

Teamwork with school

Primary school cooperation

The cooperation between nursery school teachers and teaching staff is based on equal footing and offers very flexible organisation options thanks to its close proximity to the local primary school. In the intensive cooperation, the so-called Bildungshaus, the future first-graders gain their first impressions and experiences of everyday school life in the last year of kindergarten. Once a week, they spend part of the morning together with their co-operation class in the playground and in school lessons. Accompanied by their teachers and class teachers, they can get to know the premises, the older children and the other teachers in a safe and secure environment. Through close dialogue and agreements between teachers and kindergarten teachers, the kindergarten children are integrated into the classroom and lessons with age-appropriate tasks. This cooperation enables the children to make a smooth transition from kindergarten to primary school and helps to avoid anxiety. The children start their first day at school with strength and confidence and thus a new chapter in their lives.

Teamwork with parents

Parents or other carers know their child best. A mutual and trusting exchange is important and valuable for everyone. That's why we take the time to get to know each other individually and have regular dialogue. Door-to-door discussions are just as valuable as targeted parent-teacher conferences, which take place as required, but at least once a year. Our documentation in the portfolios, which are accessible to parents and carers at all times, serves as the basis for this. You will be informed about various topics and the latest news at parents' evenings. We are always happy to receive questions, suggestions and ideas from parents and carers. Individual drop-off and pick-up times offer families little space for encounters. We organise various activities to enable them to get to know each other and exchange ideas.


Certification of day care centre with a focus on sport and movement education

The vocational school for social pedagogy at the Fritz-Ruoff-Schule Nürtingen has been recognised as a motor skills centre in Baden-Württemberg by the Stuttgart Regional Council. For this reason, it has the opportunity to award kindergartens that are particularly concerned about their children's world of movement with the certificate "Day care centre with a focus on sport and movement education".

Following the successful examination and assessment of the specified criteria, we received the first award in 2012. Every three years, a representative of the motor skills centre visits the centre to check that the award criteria are being met. We are delighted to have received this certification for the fourth time in a row thanks to our daily exercise time, suitable premises, a trained exercise instructor, regular training for our teachers and our focus on healthy eating.

"House of Little Scientists" certification

Thanks to the "Ohrenspitzer in der Kita" project, our facility was awarded the "Best Practice Prize" by Forschergeist 2012 and received certification as a "Haus der kleinen Forscher". In 2022, we were able to fulfil the requirements for the 4th follow-up certification once again.

EMIL - learning to regulate emotions

With "EMIL", the ZNL Transfer Centre for Neuroscience and Learning Ulm has developed a kindergarten concept that has been tried and tested in practice and successfully evaluated. Our educational staff are familiar with this concept and apply it daily in the centre.

JolinchenKids - fit and healthy in the daycare centre

JolinchenKids is a nursery programme from the AOK that promotes the health of children up to the age of six. The programme focuses on nutrition, exercise and mental well-being. JolinchenKids introduces children to the joy of exercise and healthy eating in a playful way. Additional information is also provided to support educators and help to make health an exciting topic for children.
