We accompany and support the children in learning about the world, understanding it and making it their own. We see it as our primary task to help the children become independent personalities so that they can go to school with a large portion of self-confidence.

The basis for this is a good and trusting relationship between the child and its caregiver. Only where children feel safe to make mistakes do they have the confidence to do something. If the child experiences that it is accepted as a whole person, it can develop trust and develop positively.


All Johanniter facilities in Rhein-Oberberg are integrated into our quality management system and certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015, as well as according to the guidelines of the Bundesvereinigung Evangelischer Tageseinrichtungen für Kinder e.V. (BETA). (BETA). A special focus of our work is the promotion of physical activity. In summer 2010, the Johanniter day care centre in Wipperfürth was recognised as a certified movement kindergarten by the Landessportbund NRW. Since 2015, we have achieved the "Pluspunkt Ernährung" certificate. Through recertification, this was confirmed for another four years in 2019. 

The certificate "Haus der Kleinen Forscher" was awarded to us in January 2020.


Take a look at our facility via our virtual tour:


The Johanniter Kindergarten in Wipperfürth was opened in 2000. Our rooms are designed to provide space for movement and retreat at the same time. Restrained furniture, few tables and chairs, different levels and small areas that can be used as retreats for different needs do justice to both the younger children's urge to move and the older ones. The furnishings can be used in different ways The materials are selected in such a way that, on the one hand, they stimulate a wide variety of activities and experiments, and on the other hand, they do not overwhelm the children with their abundance and too many stimuli. By using everyday and natural materials, the senses (perception), imagination, language and social behaviour are intensively promoted. The materials have their fixed place and are arranged in such a way that they are easy for the children to find and discover. We as educators accompany the children, observe them and offer them the materials they choose as a challenge. Each of the three group rooms has an adjoining room and sanitary area. Each group room has a small storage room. There are fully functional kitchens with dining areas in the group rooms. The adjoining rooms of the group rooms have been converted into function rooms, which supports the partially open work.


A good and attractively prepared environment in the group rooms challenges the children to be active. The children have the opportunity to experiment, compare, try out, marvel, discover and much more. A sleeping area and two changing areas are provided for the younger children. A differentiation room (staff room) is available for small group activities or individual support. The large gymnasium with its many materials offers the opportunity to try out gross motor skills. Each group has its own gymnastics day (see also daily schedule). Parent meetings take place in the office or the staff room. The group rooms are named after the stars. There is the moon group, sun group, star group. Since each room is designed a little differently, the children have a variety of movement and perception experiences at their disposal. Outdoor area The versatile outdoor area is laid out in terraces. In the upper area, facing the street, there is a bird's nest swing, a play area and the possibility to drive vehicles. A small playhouse invites to role play. There is a separate sandbox for children under three. A slide or a small path leads to the lower area. Here, a large, covered sandbox invites to play, a climbing frame and another piece of meadow complete the play area. Behind the house is a small garden with two raised beds. The children enthusiastically experience the opportunity to plant carrots, radishes and strawberries and watch them grow and flourish. A herb spiral created by the parents trains the children's sensory perception.

Daily Schedule

Breakfast is the basis for a good day, to fill the energy stores. Whether it should be bread, yoghurt or muesli (with almonds, nuts or sultanas) is purely a matter of taste. Fresh fruit and vegetables are always available. A variety of toppings (sausage, cheese) complete the rich offer. , tea or milk are available as beverages at any time. No child is forced to eat up. The children are guided to taste the food in order to be able to form an opinion about the taste. The child decides for itself when, how much and with whom it would like to have breakfast.

We receive our lunch from the company dk-Leichlingen. This is a certified food provider according to the guidelines of the DGE, who supplies us with freshly cooked lunch every day. We have a choice of three menus as well as the option of adding other components, such as salads or fresh fruit. Food allergies and religious requirements are of course taken into account in joint arrangements. On special days, individual groups go to the local weekly market to learn about or buy more food. Cooking our own vegetable soup with sausages is particularly popular.

Our basic pedagogical approach

Education is more than knowledge

- Children are unique personalities

- Learning with all senses

- Discovering the world through research

- Experiencing Christian values

- Acting in partnership


Our Image of the Child/How Children Learn

At the Johanniter Kindergarten in Wipperfürth, we see each child as a unique personality that we recognise and value. It is particularly important to us that the children feel accepted and comfortable in order to be able to develop their self-education process. "Every child is a master builder of himself" (Maria Montessori). Children are actors in their own development process who want to discover, research, experiment with questions, play, work, sing, paint and much more in order to discover and conquer their world. To do this, they need a stimulating environment that encourages them to discover and try things out. Our appealing room concept offers them the possibilities to develop according to their age. We, the educators, accompany the children with their different personalities on this path and offer them continuous security and trust. We support them where they need help, praise, encourage or comfort them. Rituals and rules, which are agreed with the children as much as possible (participation), provide the necessary framework for finding one's own position in the community.

Quality Assurance

The quality policy of the Rhine/Oberberg regional associations is derived from the mission statement, the statutes and the goals of Johanniter-Unfall-Hilfe e.V.. Internal and external audits are carried out regularly to check the effectiveness of the quality management system and its maintenance, and to identify potential for improvement if necessary. The day care facilities for children are actively involved in the further development of the quality management system and its processes, documents and applicable documents in various committees.

Every year, the day care facilities for children draw up their facility-related quality objectives for the current day care year. When creating and formulating the quality objectives, the day care centre pays particular attention to the following principles:

  • Our educational and organisational services are oriented towards the needs of the children and their
  • Supporting the children's development into independent, self-confident personalities capable of living in a community.
  • Equal and respectful treatment of children and families in order to avoid or reduce disadvantages.
  • Ensuring a holistic educational partnership as a learning process based on partnership.


Cooperation with other institutions is part of our professional self-image and a necessary component of our work.

It refers not only to our cooperation partners, but also to other institutions and professional services.

Our cooperation partners are:

  • - Wipperfürth protestant church community
  • - Wipperfürth sports club
  • - metabolon


The early intervention centre "Herbstmühle" in Wipperfürth is a trustworthy contact for all questions regarding developmental support. In addition, speech therapists, occupational therapists and other specialised services (doctors, SPC...) provide additional support.

The Youth Welfare Office and the Health Office are important partners with whom we have a regular and trusting cooperation.

Furthermore, we work together with the traffic police and the fire brigade of Wipperfürth within the framework of our pre-school work.

Teamwork with school

The Child Education Act §30 regulates the cooperation with the school.

Our institution attaches great importance to a positive, trusting and goal-oriented cooperation with the surrounding primary schools in Wipperfürth. In addition to the exchange between teachers, parents and educators at our centre, this includes the annual visits of the preschool children to the school of their choice.  

Teamwork with parents

Working with parents in a spirit of trust and partnership is important to us. We take families seriously in their various life situations and adapt to them. In doing so, we clarify common developmental and educational goals in order to create the best conditions for the child's positive development. In doing so, it is important to us to also take into account the concerns at group and facility level for all children The day care centre is often the first institutional facility a child visits. At the same time, the family remains the child's most important frame of reference. The day care centre takes the second position. Both systems intervene in the child's life with their different experiences and competences. The parents are the experts for their own child. The educational staff form the professional side of the relationship triangle. Parents and pedagogical staff work together for the benefit of the child.

We offer parents

  • Parents' evenings with and without external speakers
  • Insight into our pedagogical work through observation, development discussions, door-to-door talks, counselling sessions, notices ...
  • Participation in festivals, celebrations and events to promote a good atmosphere of togetherness
  • Participation in the parents' council, council of the facility
  • Participation through involvement and the possibility to complain

Parental participation in the day care centre is stipulated in the Child Education Act §10.

In addition to the parents' council and the day care centre's council, parents have the opportunity to participate through the centre's support association or through active participation in events.

In daily door-to-door talks, we receive feedback and information from parents that is general or relevant to the upcoming daily routine. Parents help us to better assess situations by giving us an overview of everyday life in the home when needed. We staff members also give the parents brief feedback about the day's events in the kindergarten, because this also enables the parents, vice versa, to be able to respond to situations during the day.

Development discussions with the parents take place every six months. The parents give us an overview of how they experience their child at home and what is important to them. The teachers in the group also report on the child's current development process from their point of view and agree on common goals for the coming six months. If necessary, these discussions can also be conducted via video conference.

In continuous contact with the parents (door-to-door talks, development talks, etc.), we try to orient ourselves to the circumstances of the family and any special features of the child (allergies, intolerances, religion). This is why, among other things, regular internal and external audits take place as part of our quality management. Satisfaction surveys are conducted in writing or digitally at regular intervals or on specific occasions (festivals, etc.).

Our facility is accompanied by the specialist advisory service.

For reasons of sustainability and increasing networking, we offer families to send written communication by email. Monthly letters, queries or other organisational matters can thus be sent via an email distribution list.



  • The Johanniter Kindergarten is a recognised movement kindergarten with the Pluspunkt Ernährung (plus point nutrition).
  • Since 2020, we have also been a "House of Little Scientists".
