Our evangelical profile

“Let the children come to me and do not hinder them, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matt. 19,14)

These values ​​are made concrete and lived in our mission statement and the daily work of the children's home.

Children learn through role models. As a church community, sponsors and employees of the children's home, we are role models and convey Christian values ​​and orientation to the children in our facility.

Our Christian faith also obliges us to be tolerant of other denominations and religions.

Our facility is open to children of all faiths and also to non-religious people.


Key objective:

Our goal is to support children holistically through real-life learning. We want to live and experience together with the children. In this way, we develop topics with the children that arise from their life situation, their questions and observations and thus give them a wide range of experiences. We focus on the educational and development areas of the orientation plan. (Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Culture)


Educational and development areas of the orientation plan and our offers


Movement education such as gymnastics, rhythm, dance, football movement games, forest exploration


Musical education such as songs, singing games, sound stories, dance, aesthetic education such as crafting, painting, designing with different materials, working in our workshop, experiments, food preparation


Rhymes, finger plays, role plays, picture books, discussion groups, plays, poems


Artistic-aesthetic offers, discussion groups, observation of natural phenomena, teaching strategies for problem solving, finding rules, understanding cause and effect relationships

Feeling and Compassion:

Help in perceiving and dealing with one's own emotions and those of others in the form of discussions, pictures, plays, music, conscious and reflected cooperation with a large mix of ages in the group, sponsorships, rules and rituals

Meaning, values, religion:

Imparting a positive basic attitude, rules, rituals, conveying the need to protect flora and fauna, respect when dealing with other people, praying together, listening to religious stories, organizing church services

Free spin:

The importance of free play in our work, that's how important the game is:

“If you want to build tall towers, you have to spend a long time on the foundation.” (Anton Bruckner)

There is no activity that takes up as much time in children's lives as play. Play is the child's job and is very important for personality development. But in contrast to adult jobs, in which the result of the activity is decisive, the following applies to children:

“What is essential to the game is the action, not the result.” (Armin Krenz)

The child can discover and understand everything through play. This means active engagement with the environment and serves both to cope with reality and to immerse oneself in a fantasy world.

Through play, the child acquires important knowledge that enables him to experience and implement diverse learning processes.

Joy is the driving force of the game.
