Outdoor Facilities

Outdoor area kindergarten

In our large outdoor area, the children have plenty of space and opportunities to experience discoveries in nature. Our climbing frame "Karlchen" offers various possibilities for climbing and thus promotes the children's movement development. In our large sandpit, the children can develop freely with different materials, boards, tires, etc., build sand castles or experiment freely. In summer, the mud area is activated and the children have the opportunity to stimulate their senses with water and sand.

A large open area offers space for our various vehicles, which also offers many opportunities to satisfy the children's urge to move. The garden also has three swings, a net swing and a hanging course.

Outdoor area crèche

In the separate crèche garden there is also a large sandpit and lots of different materials to experiment with. In summer, children also like to play with water and sand or splash around in a small tub of water. A space for vehicles in the upper area and a small climbing frame with a slide also invite children to be active.

Stairs and a small slope encourage the children to develop their movements and offer them various motor challenges.

The children bring a breakfast box and water bottle from home for breakfast together in the main group.

A thermobox with a warm lunch from home has proven to be a good idea for lunchtime (VÖ care form).

Unfortunately, we are currently unable to offer a hot lunch.

In addition, we receive various regional fruit, vegetables, cheese and yoghurt every week via an EU funding program. We offer this in different variations at mealtimes to inspire the children to adopt a healthy lifestyle.

A relaxed and positive table atmosphere is important to us at all mealtimes.
