Of mice, moles and fleas

In a day care group, up to nine children are cared for by qualified childminders in child-friendly rooms with the aim of education and support. This has created another flexible offer for parents with young children.

    Children up to the age of three are cared for in a small group by childminders who act as permanent caregivers. There are areas for age-appropriate stimulation, for rest and care times as well as a large outdoor area. In close contact with the childminder, the child learns with all its senses how to learn about the world. Rituals in the daily routine provide structure and security for the children. Meals are freshly prepared every day.

    Pedagogical content and goals
    The first and most important goal is for the children to feel wanted, safe and secure in the group. The daily routine is based as closely as possible on a family structure. They play, sing and do handicrafts together. Likewise, individual cleanliness and hygiene education is one of the most important tasks. The development of the child's personality, skills and interests is of great importance.
    Each child has his or her own bed so that he or she can take a nap according to his or her needs. Meals are also prepared while the children are present.

    Nutrition during the care time
    The children bring breakfast from home. Lunch and a snack (fruit) are freshly prepared every day. Attention is paid to a healthy diet appropriate for the children.
