Structure of the crèche - NEW!!!

NEW from 01.09.2021/22 our crèche!

From 01.09.2021, we will now also be looking after the very youngest children from 3 months in our crèche, the Krabbel-Käfer group, in a loving and secure way. In a safe and secure environment, your child can discover the world through play and receive individual support. Our aim is that your child feels comfortable with us, grows up in a familiar and trusting atmosphere and is allowed to develop into a little personality. The necessary space, rituals, security and structure create the basis for this.

Our children experience a structured daily routine. We welcome your child from 8 a.m. onwards. Your child can be looked after in our group until 3.30 pm. Our fixed rituals include breakfast together, lunch followed by a nap and an afternoon snack.

There is plenty of time for free play and personal development. Our little bugs are allowed to explore the world according to their personal needs. We awaken all the senses with finger games, crawling verses, singing and romping. Depending on the weather, we also like to spend our time outdoors.

The children learn with and from each other through daily habits, the recurring rhythm creates orientation and security. Each child is supported in the group as well as in individual activities. We treat the smallest of our Käfer children with loving individual attention. During feeding and personal hygiene, our pedagogical staff can devote their full attention to your child in a trusting and individual manner.

Our nursery has a spacious group room, a bedroom with small beds, a bathroom for nursing and a kitchen where we prepare bottle feeds as well as baby food brought from home. On request, we are also happy to provide healthy food suitable for children. Please contact us for more information. Our bright and friendly furnished group room is directly connected to our outdoor area.

The gentle familiarisation process is based on the Berlin Model and will be agreed with you individually.

Structure of the bilingual kindergarten with pre-school

Our bilingual kindergarten is open to children aged between 2 and 6 years. About 50% of our families are at least bilingual.

Group structure

The bilingual kindergarten with pre-school consists of five mixed-age bilingual family groups in which up to 23 children are cared for. Each group is led by two pedagogical specialists.

Our youngest children (2 to about 3.5 years) start in the toddler groups. The groups are purely German-speaking and specially designed to meet the basic needs of very young children. The maximum group size is 15 children.

Childcare hours

Your child is most welcome from 7:30 a.m. for the early session. You can choose the pick-up time: 3:40 p.m. or 6:00 p.m.

You can find our holiday calendar and information about stages on the iDSB campus HERE.

Group language

Bilingual groups: German/French or German/English

Foreign languages

We ensure a child-friendly atmosphere for our pre-school children based on the immersion method. In the “language pool”, the children are supervised by a German-speaking and an English-speaking or French-speaking pedagogical specialist depending on the chosen foreign language.

Educational structure

Our teaching structure is based on the Thuringian Educational Plan, which is considered a high-quality educational standard. The children always take the center stage since we focus on an individualized learning process. In this regard, we have many open activities in the afternoons in addition to the kindergarten’s core hours. These are intended to arouse the interests and inclinations of the children.

We also focus on the quality framework for kindergartens and pre-schools that is stipulated by the Central Office for Foreign Schools.

Transfer to Primary School

An exciting pre-school program with thematic programs and basic skills training is the ideal preparation for the primary school. Please find an overview HERE.

Our welcome culture includes…

  • presentation of the bilingual kindergarten with pre-school
  • an individualized adaptation phase for every child accompanied by the parents
  • many opportunities to make friends with schoolmates quickly in our school programs
  • a school community that provides you with excellent tips and a network to help you quickly and easily find your way in Belgium
