Our pedagogical work is based on the situation-oriented approach of Armin Krenz. This approach is characterised by an appreciative view of human beings and a holistic pedagogy. The focus of the pedagogical work is on the child (with its individual life situation, its abilities, prerequisites, conditions and needs), its parents, the general group situation as well as on the pedagogical staff, who constantly reflect on themselves and their actions. The aim of the approach is to accompany and support the children in coping with their present and future life situation. They should be able to develop into independent, resilient, competent thinkers and actors as well as people capable of making judgements.

Armin Krenz's situation-oriented approach is firmly anchored in our daily work. Thus, we educators are concerned to perceive each individual child with his or her individual abilities and characteristics and to support them in a targeted manner. Through our daily work with the children, we gain an insight into the current life situation in which the child finds itself. In doing so, we take special care to support the child sensitively in difficult situations or new challenges and to accompany the child on its way. We maintain an intensive exchange with the parents and guardians of our children and always strive for good contact. The parents' council serves as a link between the parents and the team of the facility.

We hold development discussions with the parents at regular intervals. We inform them about the progress and development of their child. They also find out how their child integrates into the group in everyday life, what strengths and interests it shows, what special features it has and much more. The exchange with the parents serves the joint support and accompaniment of the child.


We cooperate with the SeiWaKai sports club, which offers training once a week at our facility. Furthermore, the music school in Meißen visits us every Monday, where children from the age of 3 can also be registered.

Teamwork with school

When children are admitted to our facility, education and upbringing begins in preparation for further education. Our day-care center works with various elementary schools in Meissen in accordance with the cooperation agreements. In order to ensure a successful transition from kindergarten to school, the children get to know the school and the teachers and, among other things, take part in taster lessons. We exchange information with parents and teachers about the level of education and development of our children, which ensures that the transition from day-care center to school is structured on an equal footing. In addition, we regularly hold pre-school lessons with the children in the last year of kindergarten, which include pre-school topics such as numbers and set theory, logical thinking, promoting fine motor skills, concentration, memory and much more.
