Extras Barrier-free, Integrative facility, care with lunch, for children with special educational needs, full day care


Our two-storey AWO day care center "Baumhaus" in Roßtal was opened in January 2018 and is located right next to the middle school, at Wilhelm-Löhe-Straße 13. The central location, bordering on the southern residential areas, offers a very good connection, as well as a number of walking and excursion possibilities. Our day-care center offers two kindergarten groups on the upper floor for children from 3 years to school entry and two crèche groups for children from 0-3 years on the ground floor. All children are welcome to us - regardless of skin color, national, social or religious affiliation. We do not exclude children and are open to their special needs. We are a family-complementing, integrative working institution with the aim of promoting the children holistically in all areas that are explained in the Bavarian education and upbringing plan. We work according to the situation-oriented approach. The biographies and living conditions of the children - not the adult's point of view - are the starting point of the early childhood education work. At the same time, topics, questions and projects are taken up that are important for the group stand. The concept of cross-group work is also important to us. Many offers, projects and events are designed so that children from different groups can participate. We work integratively. This means that both children with and without disabilities are cared for together in a group. Differences should be accepted and tolerated as normal from the start. It should be a matter of course to help and support one another. During the free play time, all of the KiTa rooms are available to the kindergarten children, such as a visit to the other groups, lots of exercise in the gym, games in the various function rooms, etc.


Our daycare center is located in a spacious, bright, two-story building, with the day nursery on the ground floor and the kindergarten on the upper floor. The center of the building is an atrium which is illuminated by a light dome in the roof. The atrium is used as a cloakroom and dining area in both the kindergarten and the crèche. There is also the option of using the atrium for joint meetings, discussions (children's conferences, etc.) and as an additional play area. The main entrance of the daycare center on the ground floor leads to a hallway that leads into the light-flooded atrium, in which the cloakroom area, the dining area of ​​the daycare center and a parent waiting area are located. The atrium leads to two large, bright group rooms, each of which is adjoined by a bedroom and a sanitary room with a changing table. While changing, there is the possibility to keep an eye on the group room through a window. The group rooms are set up in a manageable and child-friendly manner and should offer the children a wide range of exercise options. There will also be various play materials that are tailored to the needs of the children. Each group also has an adjacent material store for toys and handicraft materials, etc.

Another material store, the management office, a barrier-free toilet with shower, the kitchen with the associated storage room and the building services room can also be reached through the entrance hall. If you turn to the west after the main entrance (right), you come to a multi-purpose room with attached storage for gymnastics equipment and the like. The multi-purpose room can be used for exercise, role play, extensive educational opportunities, parents' evenings, etc. A spacious staircase with an elevator, which is only used for accessibility and for transporting food to the upper floor, leads to the kindergarten area. Here, too, the rooms are accessed via the atrium, which, like in the crib, is used as a cloakroom, dining area, parents' waiting area and additional play area.

The two outgoing group rooms each have an adjoining room as well as adjoining washrooms with toilets and baby changing facilities. The group rooms each have an integrated playhouse with a second play level and are functional and child-friendly. There will also be various play materials in the kindergarten that are tailored to the needs of the children. Whether it is a workbench, an experiment corner or a building corner, a painting and handicraft table, a cladding corner or a doll's apartment - you will find plenty of stimuli in our facility, can develop creative ideas and design your own game. Material storage rooms are also available here for the two groups adjacent to their group room. Another material store, a cleaning room with washing machine and dryer, two staff or guest toilets, as well as the staff room for team meetings, discussions with parents, etc., and as a break room can also be reached via the corridor area. All group rooms have direct access to the outdoor play area; on the upper floor via a covered outdoor play area / balcony, which allows access to the garden through a wide staircase. The crib groups have access to the outdoor play area on the ground floor via a terrace area.

Outdoor Facilities

The spacious outdoor play area is divided into an area for the U3-children, with play equipment and offers especially for toddlers and an area for the kindergarten children. In the U3-area there are opportunities to swing, climb and slide, a lane for bobby cars, etc., a sand playground with shade or cover, and a natural area with trees and bushes. A terrace with seating for the children will be created below the balcony and is thus protected against solar radiation and the weather. In the outdoor area of ​​the kindergarten, which takes up the greater part of the outdoor area, there are also diverse play and exercise options, such as a slope slide, a climbing "castle" with ropes, nets and platforms, a climbing ramp with rope, swings, and a sand playground Sun sails, a horizontal bar, etc. Here, too, there is a lot of natural areas with lawns, hedges, bushes and trees! There is storage space for toys and vehicles for both outdoor play areas. Access to our AWO-KiTA Roßtal is guaranteed barrier-free via a footpath from Wilhelm-Löhe-Strasse. In the entrance area of ​​the day care center there is direct access from the outside to a heated pushchair storage room.

Daily Schedule

The daily routine in our day-care center is, as far as possible, adapted to the wishes and needs of the children. Active participation by the children promotes self-esteem, a sense of responsibility and democratic coexistence. Recurring processes and rituals give the children orientation and structure. Nevertheless, the daily routine allows appropriate flexibility and the ability to respond to current needs according to the respective circumstances In the morning, the children are warmly welcomed to give them a good start to the day. As soon as the delivery time is over, the day begins in each group with a “morning circle”. The following free game is very important to us, because here the children have the greatest possible freedom of choice about the location, material, friends and duration of the game. Almost all rooms, as well as the garden, are freely available to the children during this time. Every day we offer guided activities for the whole group or small sub-groups. We attach great importance to fun and games outdoors. It is therefore important to us to spend time with the children in the garden or in the surrounding area every day. At lunchtime, individual children are picked up, the others have lunch in their group. Afterwards, the younger children in particular have the opportunity to “snooze” to rest. The rest of the children also enjoy a rest phase in the group, during which a story is read out in a cozy atmosphere. Then the children have another free play time. In the afternoon we offer other employment opportunities, including courses, if the number of employees allows. During the flexible pick-up time in the afternoon, the children can be picked up at individual times.


to eat and drink Breakfast / Vespers: We value a healthy and varied breakfast! (No sweets, jams or Nutella breads, etc); there is a “sweet tooth day” once a month! The children bring breakfast with them from home. Please pay attention to cans and containers that your child can open / close as independently as possible. Furthermore, we ask you to refrain from disposable packaging to avoid waste! Having lunch: It is possible to order a warm lunch. The warm lunch is freshly prepared daily in the kitchen of the “AWO Mobile Menu” of our AWO KV in Zirndorf and delivered directly to the facilities. If vegetarian food or food for allergy sufferers is desired, this can be taken into account. We involve the children in the menu selection and the cook of the “AWO Mobile Menu” is happy to accept the children's wishes and implement them according to the possibilities. Beverages: The children don't bring drinks! (This also includes drinking yoghurt) EXCEPTION: on excursions and nature days, the children bring drinks (preferably WATER) in a tight bottle! There is a wide selection of drinks in the KiTa: tea and water (still and medium) There are juice spritzers on special occasions! Tuesday = milk day Afternoon snack: At 3 p.m. we sit down again with the children for a small snack. For this purpose, we put up a list of what snack items you can bring with you (e.g. breadsticks, mini salamis, cheese cubes, wholemeal bread, bread chips, small pretzels, ...); from this we put together delicious “snack plates” for the children. There is also fruit and / or raw vegetables. EU school program for fruit, vegetables and milk: We take part in the EU school program for fruit and vegetables and milk; We receive weekly fruit and vegetables, as well as milk and yoghurt from a regional supplier (currently “Blumen Fröschel” from Roßtal). The number of children aged 3 and over is taken into account (reference date rule). These fruits and vegetables are supplemented by donations from their parents. Every day we provide the children with appropriately sliced ​​fruit and vegetables!

"Play is the child's elementary, self-active form of expression through which life management and self-education take place. The purpose lies only in the game itself. Play in the narrower sense is the central activity of a child with which it makes contact with its environment. The child receives through the reactions of the play partner a knowledge of his own abilities, weaknesses, feelings and wishes. In this way the child can develop an image of himself and build on it. The game is a spontaneous activity, starting from the child. [...] The game comes in day-care centers. Children develop through play, gain experience, process impressions and experiences, and unconsciously acquire a lot of knowledge and social skills. " Source: Vollmer, K. (2012): Spiel. In: Vollmer, K .:
Specialized dictionary for educators and educational professionals. Freiburg: Verlag Herder. In the free play, the children have the opportunity to choose the type of game, playing partner, location and duration of the game themselves. Here the children can learn, experiment and develop their own solutions with all their senses. They take responsibility for their own actions and expand their field of experience on an emotional and social level. The task of the educators in free play is to support and accompany the children in their play. By paying close attention to the children, the teachers receive important information for their work. She can see what issues the child is preoccupied with, how they understand the world, what trains of thought they have, what learning strategies they have, who they are related to, how the child deals with conflicts, where they need help and how language development is going. These observations are the basis for the written definition of the level of development and for discussions with parents.

Educational work according to the Bavarian education and training plan Education and development begin at the time of birth; every child is different from others in terms of personality and individuality. This is exactly where the Bavarian education and upbringing plan comes in. Education is a social process that takes place in toddlerhood together with parents, grandparents and other caregivers, in kindergarten with educators and nannies, in school with teachers and always with other children. From 0-6 years of age and the beginning of school are the most learning-intensive and developing years.
