In our large day care centre we look after the young children and therefore it is very important for us that the children enjoy being in our centre and like spending the day there.
The manageable group size of 9 children allows us to organise a daily routine that is varied and adapted to the children’s interests. We offer the children activities that are appropriate for their age and we can also divide them up into little groups for this.

The focus of the educational work is the children. They experience the life in the group as a complement to their family home, where they have a sense of well-being, where they are liked and respected. In this safe environment the children are meant to develop their physical, emotional, mental and social abilities and become independent personalities.
Our aim is that the children – taking into account their age – develop and become independent and self-confident children who are eager to learn. To do this, we would like to holistically support all areas of the personality. (Perception, cognitive area, movement, language, music, social behaviour.)
We offer a wide range of actions in these areas and differentiate them according to the age and the stage of development of the individual children. With these offers the children can gather experience and learn that they can change and create things.
It is often the little things, but it is a great success for the children.
This always supports the development of independence.
This includes among other things: eating and drinking independently, learning to walk, to speak, body care, learning to get dressed and undressed, learning and refining motor skills, discovering creativity and music and trying them out.
They experience how to deal with one another considerately and learn to help one another, to comfort others.
The development of language already begins in the early phase of life. As the children take part in our group at a very early age, they learn to speak in our centre. The children imitate the first sounds, use chains of syllables, speak the first words and finally complete sentences.
It is important for us to incorporate as many speaking opportunities as possible in our daily routine and to encourage them in a playful manner. We stimulate the language of the children with songs, finger games, hand puppets and looking at picture books as well as with support in speaking in everyday situations.
Our large day care centre is located in the student residence of the Student Support Services. Both rooms are directly next to each other. They are at ground level and are approx. 110 square metres in size.
They include a small entrance area, a large open playroom, a sleeping area, a kitchen, a washroom and WC. A half-height wall separates the dining area from the nappy changing area and the playroom.
Furthermore, the children can also use the little playground located in front of the house.
Cooperation with the parents
The cooperation between the family and us as day care providers is especially important for the well-being and the entire development of everyone involved. This includes, of course, arrangements and consulting.
Separation anxieties, which can occur in the early days, are possible for both children and parents. It is especially important for all parents to know how their children fared during their absence. For this purpose, we have “doorway discussions”.
In these conversations we discuss — among other things – special situations in the family, in order to be able to understand the child’s behaviour (e.g. the child slept fitfully or a new tooth is in the process of coming in).
Of course you will be informed about anything special during the child’s daily routine in the day care centre.
In addition we offer the parents when necessary to arrange an appointment so that we can discuss in detail the child’s current stage of development.
It is highly desirable that the parents are open and trusting in their relationship with us. This makes the work with your children for us much easier.
