Current information


The ecumenical kindergarten has two groups and can care for a maximum of 70 children. Integration places are reserved for 5 children. The nursery school is available to all children as an full-day facility.

On the ground floor of our house we care for up to 40 and 45 children in the "colourful group" with an age structure of three and a half to seven years. Three high rooms in manor house style with connecting doors serve as functional rooms for the children, which are furnished accordingly. These are complemented by three further rooms on the 1st and 2nd floor. The two bedrooms, which are staggered according to age, are also located on this floor.

The following functional rooms are used by the children:

  • Studio
  • Construction room
  • Role play room
  • Reading and play room
  • Experiment room
  • Pre-school room
  • Movement/multi-purpose room
  • Kitchen
  • Workshop and
  • exploratory corridors.

In addition, there is a shared wardrobe and two bathrooms on the ground floor and one bathroom on the 2nd floor.

On the 1st floor, we welcome 25 children aged one to four years in the "Yellow Group". Three functional rooms with connecting doors are used by them. In the rooms, the children find corners for building, reading, dressing up, making music, painting and moving. These functional rooms are complemented by a studio, a large shared bathroom, a separate wardrobe and a terrace, which we also use for meals during the warm season. One of the functional rooms also serves as a bedroom for the children.

Outdoor Facilities

Our park-like grounds cover an area of 4500 sqm. It is surrounded by an alternating planting of flowering shrubs as well as fruit and berry trees and bushes and is additionally protected by a wooden fence designed by the children.

The outdoor area was redesigned in 2004 according to suggestions from the children, parents and the team

Large, old trees provide shade in summer. A high, long mountain stretches through the middle of the terrain. Shrubs, small groups of bushes, hedges and hills offer a variety of play and hiding places for the children. Natural play equipment offers the children the greatest possible development of their imagination while playing. Furthermore, there is a children's workshop in the outdoor area for the realization of small construction projects and a children's tool shed, filled with various vehicles and play material for outside.

Daily Schedule

6:30 a.m. - our house opens

The children are looked after by a nursery school teacher.

The arrival and greeting of the children and parents is very important to us. We want to notice how the children are feeling in the morning (e.g. tired, happy, sad, depressed, pain of separation). The children should be allowed to show their feelings and we take them seriously and react accordingly to the situation.

approx. 7:30 a.m. - Breakfast time

With a prayer appropriate for children, we thank God and find a moment of silence. Table decorations and a candle will contribute to the quiet atmosphere.

Each child brings their own breakfast. We ask all parents to find a good compromise between the requirements of a healthy diet and the wishes of the children when choosing breakfast.

A healthy breakfast is important to us. Therefore we ask all parents to bring the children before or after breakfast.

Once a month we have a healthy breakfast. On this day, the children do not bring their own breakfast from home, but prepare it together in the group. In the days before, we plan and shop together and everyone can contribute their wishes and ideas. We collect 1,00 € per child/month for the common breakfast.

approx. 8:45 a.m. - Morning circle

The morning circle is a time for the children to reflect, listen, participate, create and talk to each other.

The morning circle takes place together with all kindergarten children.

The individual topics are based on the Christian cycle of the year, but the environment and nature as well as current problems can also be the topic of the morning circle.

In order to allow all the children to arrive in peace and to give them the opportunity to rest during the morning circle, we consider it necessary that no children should be brought to the nursery between 8:45 am and approx. 9:00 am!

approx. 9:00 a.m. - we open our doors for open group work

During this time, the focus is on play as an important field of learning for the children.

Through stimuli or project work, the children are motivated to imitate, participate, experiment and become creative themselves.

The children choose the offers of different areas voluntarily and according to their stage of development. (There are the artistic, cognitive, creative, motoric, social, emotional and religious areas).

The children can play and romp in our large garden every day. Please remember to wear suitable weather clothing!

approx. 11:15 a.m. - lunch is served in the three groups

A child-appropriate table prayer will again create a moment of silence.

Everyone decides for themselves what and how much they want to eat.

The educator eats together with the children at the table.

For nap time, the children who stay until the afternoon slip into their sleeping clothes.

We put the children in the right mood for nap time with stories and songs.

13:00 - all morning children (max. 6 hours of care) must be collected.

approx. 14:30 - snack together

The kindergarten provides a healthy snack.

Afterwards there is time to play together and let the afternoon fade away.

16:30 - our house closes


We offer three main meals and one snack in our facility. Breakfast is brought by the children to the daycare center. We provide milk from the organic farm Mahlitzsch, water, tea, juice and yogurt. We educators attach great importance to a healthy and vitamin-rich diet of our children. The use of products from the region is very important to us. Lunch is therefore delivered to us by the kitchen of the Social Projects in Meissen. In this way, we guarantee full-fledged, regional and seasonal food as well as short transport routes.

We prepare the vespers and snacks ourselves in our kitchen. Interested children have the opportunity to take over work steps and to participate in the preparation.

For the sponsor, the institution is a complete work, which was created in his sense and with the implemented concept corresponds to his claim to childcare. The child-centered and religiously oriented work in the institution is the intended pedagogy of the supporting association.

The Christian education of children takes into account their respective life situations. It is an integral part of our holistic education and requires an atmosphere of trust in which the children can develop according to their abilities and interests and are enabled to act together.


The association "Ökumenischer Kindergarten Meißen e.V." joined forces in 1990. The intention of the association was the foundation of a Christian image of man supported by a Christian image of man. Day care center whose spiritual center is based on the gospel. The association is primarily formed from the parenthood of the day care center. This is supplemented by members who want to support the day care center ideologically. The sponsor is responsible for the concept, personnel, space and financing of the day care center. The first point of contact in the day care centre is the director. The joint continuous meetings with the carrier ensure a good flow of information.

In 2009, Alexandra Prinzessin zur Lippe took over the patronage of our house.
