Baby and Toddler Group

Our family baby and toddler group is for the youngest children aged 0-3 years. Open from 7:00 to 18:00.
We follow Emmi Pikler’s educational concept.
The educators carefully accompany the individual development of the babys and the toddlers.

We look after your child from Monday to Friday from 7:00 to 18:00. Drop off is by 9:00. Pick up from 16:00.

The educational daily routine includes individual care, sequences in small groups, games and outdoor walks.

A diet adapted to the age of the children will be agreed upon with the parents. Powdered milk, special foods (allergies, light foods) are provided by the parents.

We cook the babies a vegetable porridge daily, consisting of fresh potatoes, carrots and an additional vegetable. Depending on the child’s age, the porridge is supplemented with additional ingredients. In addition, fruit puree is served in the morning and/or afternoon. All meals are accompanied by fennel, lime blossom or camomile tea.

We attach great importance to a balanced seasonal diet. The toddler menu also features meat and cheese dishes. Our baby food is organic.

“Give me time” – Emmi Pikler

Emmi Pikler’s educational concept is based on three pillars: language, movement and care.

Language is not just about learning to speak and building vocabulary. The children learn to communicate and cooperate.

During the first 3 years children learn to crawl, sit, stand and walk. At their own pace, they learn to control their own body, and thus develop autonomy.

Care is an extremely important aspect of relationship building, especially for the very youngest children. That is why every child has loving attention from an assigned caregiver who helps him or her with feeding, changing diapers, dressing etc..

Small children come into the world with an innate curiosity and explore their environment. In this way they learn for life. The learning processes are supported by appropriate material distributed in the room at child height. Functions and tasks are explored by the children through play.

In the nursery, we ensure a family atmosphere in which children feel comfortable, can live out their curiosity and have experiences adapted to their age.
