Help me do it myself. Show me how to do it. Don’t do it for me. I can do it alone. I want to. Have patience to understand my ways. They may be longer, I may need more time because I want to make several attempts. Encourage me to make mistakes and make an effort, because I can learn from them. Maria Montessori

Children each have their own personality with talents, strengths and weaknesses. How and when a child learns is very individual to them.

Therefore we regularly adapt the learning environment to the needs and interests of the children.

Activities in the forest and in the surrounding area are as much a part of the daily routine as excursions to the zoo and to the farm. Early musical education, sports and swimming enhance our timetable.

We encourage the children to understand their own learning. The children learn to organise themselves to achieve their goals.

Performance and the visualisation of success strengthen self-confidence and the motivation to venture into the unknown. Working together is of great importance.

Our Kindergarten meets The Zurich Kindergarten curriculum requirements.
