“Being a kid”, have time, be yourself, are key words in our nursery. Our main focus is giving the children time, time to orientate, to arrive, time to find themselves, to explore their favourite location. It also means we take the time to discover “treasures” with the children: Especially stones, snails – that also means all these things are explored with all senses: How does it feel? Does a snail have a smell? Can I myself move this fast or slow? We think it is important for the children to find these questions – intrinsic interest can stimulate their own explorative curiosity – and they need that in our nursery.
On the other side we are a nursery for adventurers: The experienced daily routine in our spacious facilities allows the children to be independent, to identify their own needs and satisfy them. Currently, the favourite place of our adventurers is the big exercise room.
Respect, helpfulness and consideration are important aspects in our daily routine. We not only expect it from our children and our interactions but also want to implement these regarding nature and animals. Hence we are building nesting boxes and provision storages for animals in our nursery.
