Central to our activities are the child and its family

Together, we want to promote a child-friendly society with equal opportunities for everyone and at the same time taking under consideration each and every child’s individual abilities. Based on social and democratic values we offer versatile activities, educational means and other pedagogical services of highest quality for children and their families.

Our goals and visions are…

a child-friendly society in which children can take an active part and the parents’ active role in their child’s education is supported and appreciated

equal opportunities for all children regarding development and education.

communities that allow children to be children and where they are given the opportunity to enjoy a happy and carefree childhood…

Teaching of values

We intend to guide the children to consciously value their freedom so that they can explore self-determination and experience the possibilities and limits that come along with it. While ourselves serving as role models we will teach the children that only non-violent measures can truly solve conflict situations. We stand with each other, support each other and thus strengthen the sense of community…

Goals of Education and Training

Quote: “Children are unique and distinctive within their inner wealth and individual dignity. It shows in their activities and affections, interests and abilities, talents, ideas, detours and limits. Depending on the circumstances of their upbringing, children have individual life experiences and histories.

On entering the kindergarten culturally diverse and varied, they need a versatile learning environment to animate and favour their individual development so that they can realise their own ideas and beliefs at their own speed.

Children want to grow, take active part, take on responsibilities and thus experience themselves as useful within the community.“

(German original in: Plädoyer für eine offene Pädagogik der Achtsamkeit; Gerhard Regel; EB Verlag Seite 39/40)

Our pedagogical mission

We consider it our mission to – working closely together with the parents – provide and realise holistic education and learning. We try to reach this goal by working closely together with the children’s parents and to strive for and cherish a fruitful relationship. This cooperation presents the foundation from which we aim to successfully complete our mission: to give every child the necessary freedom to develop its unique self and acquire the tools to actively and autonomously make decisions in its daily life.
