About us

Educational profile:

The children are warmly welcome at our fine premises; we provide supervision during kindergarten times, and take care of the children’s physical, mental and intellectual wellbeing.

We create framework conditions in which children can act independently, depending on their level of development. Among many other things, this means providing attractive, well laid out group areas, and an outdoor area with a wide range of playing stimulation. By arrangement and in accordance with rules established together with them, the children can move freely throughout the entire centre, including visiting and playing in other rooms.

Playing is an essential part of childhood, and is the most important way for children to explore themselves and their environment (e.g. through role plays, construction games, exercises and singing, and non-simulation games. Childhood experiences are primarily gained through playing.

Those who play speak, listen, are brave, feel, and are not alone!

To promote playing development, and encourage the children’s independent personalities, it is important to give them opportunities to experience things and trust their own actions. The children set their own goals, which enables them to assess themselves better, and allows real successes to be achieved.

We perform our educational tasks as a family-supporting child-care facility, always in close co-operation with parents.
