The Concept

Maria Montessori

Montessori´s ideas support the urge for independence.

At Die kleine Villa, we try to encourage that and offer oppurtunities for the children to be independent.

We create an environment where the children are able to play and move freely.

They gradually learn to deal with everyday objects and activities on their own.

Emmi Pikler

The pedagogy of Emmi Pikler describes the basic needs of a child and how to meet them.

Only if children feel safe, protected and cared about, they are able to act on their own and try out new things.

The facilities

In order to meet the children´s needs, the facilities will be maintained and cleaned regularly and they will be prepared
and/or adjusted according to the children´s interests.

The facilities are furnished child- and toddler-oriented.

There are areas for personal preference, such as: free playing and moving (indoor and outdoor), doing arts and crafts, taking a rest,
reading (there is an extra comfort zone for that) etc.

Settling in

In order to settle in, the children gradually break loose from attachment figures and get more independent. It may not only be an emotionally burdensome situation for the parents, but for the children as well. To help the children be comfortable and settle in, we provide them with as much time and patience as they need. The parents will always help form the process of settling in.

An important principle is that the children decide themselves wether or not they feel comfortable and settled in, and not their parents. This requires a high level of flexibility from the parents,but only if the children are properly settled in, they can feel comfortable and be at ease with the daily routine at child care.

In most cases, child care is he first time that a child is seperated from their parents. In order to create the basis for a trustful connection between us and the children, we try to make the transition from family to child care as smooth as possible. Usually, the process of settling in and getting used to the daily routine takes about 4-6 weeks. In the first week, the child visits us with their parents so both can get to know the new environment. The parents and us will decide individually when the child is ready for seperation, depending on when the child feels comfortable at child care.

Important: a caregiver / parent must always be available for emergencies.

Collaboration with the parents

Collaborating with the parents is very important to us, as it is the basis for a well-functioning childcare. A short exchange when picking the child up in the afternoon or when bringing them in the morning can help the parents describe the current situation of their child and we have the opportunity to give a feedback on how the day at child-care went. In addition, our parents are always welcome to make an appointment for a more detailed conversation.

Development talks

Development talks are offered to the parents on a regular basis, at least one to two times a year. This way, the parents can have a more precise overview about their child`s development at child-care.

Hygiene

Personal hygiene is a key factor to a sound development and it plays a huge role for a child´s well-being. Therefore, imparting knowledge and skills on body hygiene (such as washing your hands properly or going to the toilet) is an important part of our work.

Nutrition

A healthy and balanced nutrition is the basis of our well-being, therefore we attach great importance to it. The meals are self-made and fresh everyday. Seasonal fruits and vegetables are important to us. At Die kleine Villa, the children learn table manners and gradually receive their own tasks such as helping to set the table. Water and tea are available the entire time

Daily routine

For children under the age of 3, a well-structured daily routine offers security.
They need recurring and reliable routines. The course oft he day is guided by a child´s needs.

8:00 am – 9:00 am: arrival and indoor playing

The day of each child begins individually and they slowly start playing inside.

9:00 am – 9:30 am: breakfast

It is important for the children to arrive in time, so that the group can eat together.

9:30 am – 11:00 am: outdoor playing (depending on the weather)

After breakfast, the group sits together and talks about the past day or weekend, the children exchange their thoughts with each other and eventually the group sings songs for children.
Afterwards, the children can decide on their own if they want to play inside or outside (Die kleine Villa is equipped with a private yard and enough space to play, e.g. in a sand box)

11:00 am – 11:30 am: washing and changing diapers

12:00 am – 2:30 pm: rest time/afternoon nap, followed by a change of diapers

2:30 pm: afternoon snack

2:30 pm – 5:00 pm: time for playing and waiting for the parents to be picked up

We try to encourage the children everyday to play outside in our yard, in order fort hem to get some fresh air.
