Current information

What is important to us!

.. that every child feels accepted in his uniqueness and connected in the community.

We support and accompany children in organizing their day according to their interests, always in coordination with the needs of other children and adults.

In our daycare center, children from different social, ethnic and cultural backgrounds experience appreciative education and care.


Our kindergarten is set up on 2 floors, the childcare is divided into 4 areas.

On the ground floor is the nest area, which introduces our children from the first year of life in a protected environment to the day-to-day life of the kindergarten. In addition to two group rooms, the children and educators have a cloakroom, a bathroom and a relaxation room at their disposal. From the group room you can access the garden. Around their third birthday, the children move from the nest area to the next group.

On the first floor there are groups/function rooms in 2 identical areas, each with three group rooms (one of which is also used as a dining area) and a bathroom. The children's cloakrooms are located in the basement. For common use, a studio with language and reading area is set up on the first floor.

In addition to the main building, a container extension with group room, bathroom, cloakroom and multifunctional room has been set up on the grounds of the kindergarten.

The equipment of the rooms depends on the interests and needs of the children and varies. The children can build on large surfaces, in themed niches, e.g. in the play kitchen, role-play, creatively design and experiment with different materials, look at books, listen to stories, retreat into cozy corners.

Daily Schedule

Our daily activities give the children orientation and security and freedom...

From 7:45 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. all children can have breakfast. It's time for table talks.

After breakfast we invite all children to a morning round. We greet each other and discuss the day.

From 9:00 a.m. the children play indoors or outdoors. It is time for educational offers.

Between 11:00 and 12:00 the children have lunch. Afterwards, everyone starts individually with the midday rest.

From 13:45 the children can have a snack. Afterwards you can play in the garden or in the house.


The food offer of the facility is ensured by "apetito". The catering offer is based on the quality standards for catering in day-care centres created by the "Deutsche Gesellschaft für Ernährung e.V."

The children have three meals (breakfast, lunch and snacks) as well as a fruit meal and drinks throughout the day.

Intolerances are taken into account, individual and cultural needs are taken into account as far as possible.

We see children as active designers who acquire their individual knowledge about themselves and the world. The central development and learning process for this is the game.

We see ourselves as supporters and companions. We support the child's joy of playing. We provide them with various indoor and outdoor play opportunities. We provide help when it is necessary and accompany conflicts by providing protection and orientation.

By observing, we determine the needs of the children and adapt our offers. We take the children's ideas and implement them together.

We want to assist the children and increasingly encourage them to make their own decisions.

We warmly welcome the children from 6:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. We offer full board in our facility.

In our facility, acclimatization is based on the Berlin acclimatization model and takes about 4 weeks. We wish for an open, lively and constructive form of cooperation.


We are happy to open up experiential spaces outside the kindergarten for the children.

In the immediate vicinity is a retirement home that we visit regularly. Together with the residents, they sing, refuel or do handicrafts.

The nearby supermarket supports us at festivals and projects, here we can quickly do smaller purchases, e.g. if there is a spontaneous desire to bake something.

Teamwork with school

A word about preparing for school...

When we enter the kindergarten, we begin to accompany the children on their way through life, to prepare them for learning at school. We give them support for self-preparation by allowing them to gain a variety of experiences and learning to evaluate them. Children become fit for school in everyday life when they interact with others, communicate and test social skills in the community.

We maintain a cooperation with the neighbouring primary school on the Schwemmbach, but are also in contact with other schools in the surrounding area.

Teamwork with parents

Within an educational partnership, we see parents as primary caregivers who accompany their child from birth, know and love it and have developed their own intuitive knowledge about their child.

We see ourselves as experts for the phase of early childhood with professional knowledge, skills and experience.

Our offer for cooperation is as follows: First contact with home tour, admission interviews to get used to, "sniffing" and the joint design of the acclimatization, "door and angel talks", development talks once a year and as needed, parents' evenings, joint parties and the opportunity to get involved as a reading mentor or in the parents' council.
