Our Focus

The main focus of our work with the children is the developmental physical education, which influences every part of the process of growth.

By offering the children sufficient opportunities to be active, it affects their confidence and personality in a positive way. Among physical and health aspects, it also encourages and develops their social skills.


Language is the most important medium to communicate. We always aim to listen to the children and to provide them with many opportunities to enjoy communication.


Physical development is important not only to grow in a healthy way but also to promote the cognitive, emotional, social and linguistic process of the children.


Nature and environment allows the children to explore and begin to understand the world around them in many different ways. It encourages their natural curiosity and interest.


Creativity is life, joy, motivation, enthusiasm and much more. We want the children to be creative with all their senses by making music, playing in the mud, feeling, drawing, doing arts and crafts …and marveling.



Children, especially the younger ones, need a room that provides a well-known attachment figure and a feeling of security, where they can start their day and stay for a longer time-period. From here they are free to explore their surroundings step by step. This room is in our institution the respective group-room. Each of the three group rooms is liberally equipped and has a second level, an adjoining room and a washing room. The group- and adjoining rooms are being furnished by the teachers according to the children´s individual needs. In every group there are areas for playing, creative shaping, building and constructing, experimenting, roleplaying, resting, reading, and breakfast. These different areas and their equipment have an age-appropriate mix. Also it is possible to change them from time to time – based on the children’s needs or for example to express ideas from them. All three groups have window-fronts with a nice view of our surrounding rich in (play-) variety.

From every group the kids are able to enter our atrium. This center is one key element of our facility. A bright open space which is part of the entrance, spacious meeting point and a place for celebrations at the same time. Additionally it has a conversation pit for the parents and a library, which is managed by the parents. Once every week the kids can borrow a book, take it home and return it on the next week.

There are 2 baby-care rooms for the children who still need nappies. The equipment is child-orientated and provides personalized drawers where nappies, wet-wipes, cream and changing clothes can be stored.

The bright and spacious gymnasium is on the first floor. Each group makes sport on a defined day. Apart from that it can also be used for free play or other activities.

On the first floor is also an extra bedroom. Each child under the age of three has his/her own little canopy bed.

Further there is an office, a kitchen, a staff room, a bathroom and different storages in the house.

Outdoor Facilities

The surrounding outdoor area is arranged generous and can be reached directly from all of the three groups by own entrances. Several levels, a variety of Vegetation and possibilities to hide encourage to play and observe.

The children are provided with different toys (a slide, climbing frames, sand-pits and a trampoline) to choose from. During the summer the water game is very attractive. Here the children are given the possibility to gather many experiences with water and Sand.

Additionally to those build-in toys the children can find a multitude of Sand-toys, scooters, cars, stilts, tricycles and more.

Die Johanniter


Johanniter-Unfall-Hilfe e.V. (JUH; German for “St. John Ambulance”) commonly known as “Die Johanniter”, is a voluntary humanitarian organization, which is part of the protestant Christianity.

The trust in God and spirit of charity are the basis of our work – no matter the religion, nationality or culture of our counterpart.

A tradition of help keeps us motivated and inspired. It is noticeable in every dimension of our acting.

Our focus is always on the individual human being who we treat with respect.

With appreciation, trust and engagement we want to express Christian values. With tolerance and fairness we encourage positive affirmation.

From our point of view each child as an individual with its own needs and personality is an important part of the group and community.

The safety and well-being of the children who are entrusted to us is mandatory.

Together with the children we are looking for answers and solutions to their questions. We offer guidance by living Christian values and celebrating religious occasions. In doing so we include their various religious experience as well.


Our team includes state-approved teachers, child-care workers, management and a cook/housekeeper and from time to time internships or volunteers.


The headcount and educational background of the team is depending on the number, age and attendance of the children. But in each group are at least 2 teachers who plan and realize the educational work of the group and who are the contact persons for the parents.


Regular advanced trainings are part of our personal qualification and of our concept. We use them to enhance our educational work with the children. Therefore we do further trainings on a yearly basis depending on personal interests, relevant subjects and wishes.
