Current information

Introduction/specifics

The Evangelical Reggio Children's Centre was opened in 1996 under the sponsorship of the Evangelical-Lutheran parish of Günzburg. Our daily work is supported and visualised by the modern architecture of the building.

We look after children aged 10 months to school age in 2 mixed-age crèche groups and 3 age-homogeneous kindergarten groups. During free play time, the children have a variety of opportunities to meet other children of different ages at the centre. This gives them a wide range of experiences and thus the chance to experience tolerance, mutual respect and trust in the community.

Our work is based on the educational philosophy of Reggio pedagogy, which emphasises the rights of children and a strength-oriented view of the child. The encounter of people with different personal abilities, from other cultures and religions is a gift that expands our and the children's world view and makes life colourful and rich.

Rooms

Our rooms


In the morning, the kindergarten children are greeted at the reception desk and can then choose one of the various functional areas.

In the age-homogeneous main groups, the kindergarten children come together for the discussion circles. Here your child has the opportunity to get involved and participate and to learn and play together with children of the same age.


The youngest kindergarten children

In the group of the youngest kindergarten children, children who already have day nursery experience and children who are attending an educational centre for the first time come together. They are all experiencing a transition and need different amounts of time and individual support.

In the role-play area, equipped with a dressing-up and doll corner, a children's kitchen or a shop, the children have the opportunity to play out situations they are familiar with from their family environment and slip into different roles. This enables them to build increasingly secure relationships with each other, gain independence and confidence and try out different conflict resolution strategies.

In the mini-studio, the explorers can familiarise themselves with different materials and tools. Sensory experience, playful experimentation and exploration are the top priorities here.


Construction room

The children have already gained a lot of experience at the centre. As the children become more independent, their friendships become stronger and their interests change. We respond to this change in needs by moving to a new functional room together. This developmentally appropriate room addresses the interest in building and constructing, developing and planning.

The room offers a variety of materials such as building blocks, tubes, tyres, platforms, an overhead projector for shadow play, architect's paper, etc.


Research and experimentation, written language and maths

The older children are increasingly aware of their role as researchers and want to find out how things work and how the world is connected. They move into their new functional room, which is science-inspired in the last year of kindergarten. Various microscopes and USB cameras in the researcher's meeting place, a magic laboratory equipped according to interests and topics, a reading and writing workshop and a maths oasis are now among the new challenges in this functional room.

The studio

In addition, the 4-6 year olds can also express their creativity and inventiveness in the studio. Two- and three-dimensional works of art are created in the studio, children work with clay or sew on the sewing machine.


The garden

Our outdoor area is freely accessible to the children every day. We have largely dispensed with traditional play equipment and favoured natural play situations. A bamboo jungle, for example, provides the opportunity to build secret hiding places or a slope on which the children can climb and slide.


The gym

Every morning there are two gym sessions, which five children from each group can join. In the gym, they have the opportunity to play various movement games, play with different materials such as newspapers, cardboard boxes or balls and gain new movement experiences or face new challenges at set-up movement construction sites.


The role play area

There is another role-play area on the lower floor. Here the children can dress up and slip into different roles.


Light and shadow

Various light objects and light tables are available in the bedroom. These invite children to experiment with light and shadow in a quiet atmosphere. The materials can be used to create unique colour and light effects that stimulate the imagination and creativity and encourage the children to explore and marvel.

Food

Our children's restaurant

 

The kindergarten serves a balanced, healthy and varied breakfast buffet every day. Anke, the teacher at the children's restaurant and certified gourmet ambassador, prepares this daily with a small group of children. Mondays and Fridays are "muesli day", on Tuesdays there are fresh pretzels and rolls from the bakery and Wednesdays are vegetarian. In addition, the "Quarkeria" opens about twice a month. Here, two to three children help to prepare (fruit) quark and then manage the serving of the Quarkeria. In addition to the normal breakfast buffet, the children can choose and "order" a quark with different toppings.

Breakfast starts at around 8.30am and is available until around 10.00am. During this time, the children can decide for themselves when and with whom they would like to have breakfast.

Lunch, including dessert, is provided by an external supplier. In addition, healthy snacks are regularly prepared in the morning, which are then offered in the afternoon together with dessert in the form of a buffet.

For parties, celebrations, excursions and spontaneous picnics in the garden, there are always plenty of helpers on hand to support Anke in preparing delicious meals.

The children's individual ideas and wishes are taken on board and realised. For example, one child proudly brought a vegetable he had harvested himself and then prepared it with Anke. Another child drew a plan for a cake and was then allowed to realise it.

Basics

The Reggio pedagogy


Our work is based on the philosophy of Reggio pedagogy. This term is used here in Germany to describe the concept and practice of the communal day-care centres in Reggio Emilia (northern Italy), which were established there after the Second World War. This approach is one of the most ambitious elementary educational concepts in the world. In 1991, it was recognised by an international group of experts as the best approach for work in daycare centres.

Reggio pedagogy is an educational philosophy in which children's rights and a reflected image of the child take centre stage.

Key features of Reggio pedagogy that accompany us in our everyday work:

    Few traditional play materials, focus on everyday materials, such as packaging materials, microscopes, daylight projectors, porcelain crockery, glasses and tools
    "The room as the 3rd educator" is designed according to the individual needs of the children and offers a wide range of opportunities
    Learning in projects
    Documentation makes learning processes visible
    Individual development
    100 languages of the child
