Kindergarten: Nursery, Reception and Year 1 (for 3 to 6 year olds)

Our concept is based on the idea that children are better able to learn and learn better when they are happy and feel comfortable, free and safe. They retain the most knowledge when they are able to experience and try things out on their own while the image of the world for children is made up of a mosaic of various fragments that are they then learn to connect and find associations between the fragments.

We see education as a walk through a world full of a huge variety of topics and pictures, all of which are interconnected. Rhythm is a part of song, song is a part of music and music is a part of life.


Teaching itself reflects this concept and is divided into thematic blocks within which children gather knowledge from the world around them and themselves, helping them acquire well-rounded abilities and life skills. Art, movement and games are all educational resources and help develop critical thinking skills. The individual topics are formally assigned their own specific time and space but are free to intermingle and frequently smoothly integrate with subsequent topics that are covered. We take great care to ensure that theory is well connected to practice and that children learn through hands on and direct experience in the form of various excursions, trips, sittings, performances and more. Well-rounded development of his or her emotional, social and cognitive abilities is also critical.

Our goal is to create an environment in which children can feel happy and safe while ensuring that parents will have a welcoming feeling of acceptance. Our aim is to ensure our "Funiverseling of coity" operate in the form of an open community with open lines of communication and close ties where children, their parents and employees all have their own irreplaceable place. For this very reason we offer parents the option to participate in regular formal and informal meetings and to have an influence on events in our community. Every month we keep parents informed of the latest news, on what has been going on and what is coming up in the near future. We consider open and direct communication to be one of the basic pillars for successful and, more importantly, constructive cooperation between our kindergarten and families.
