Our nursery and kindergarten places are designed for children from the age of nine weeks until they start school. We look after your child in age-homogeneous groups. In our house, we give great importance to openness to the world and a reference-oriented approach to work. The well-being of your child is our top priority. Our committed and qualified pedagogical specialists discover the world together with the children and support them to develop into cheerful, socially competent, self-confident and learning personalities.
Every child in our nursery has its reference group with reference teachers and remains in its fixed group until it starts school. If possible, at least one specialist will accompany the children from the time they settle in until they start school. Based on the secure bonds of the children in their children's group, we pay particular attention to the children's openness to other people and new situations. Children from different countries of origin are looked after in our nursery. We understand openness to the world not only in a geographical sense. We want to pick up parts of the children's real world. Together with them and supported by the parents or partners in the Francke Foundations, we discover their culture as an expression of their own world. We are happy to work with the children's creative centre Krokoseum, the Botanical Garden, the foundation pastor, the family competence centre and the sports club SV Francke 08.
We are at home in a unique building. Spacious and bright rooms as well as floors that can be used several times in the house give the children the opportunity to explore, get to know each other and move. We have several "mud rooms" in which creativity is capitalized. We are particularly happy about the large movement room, which offers a wide variety of materials, from balls and tyres to a basketball net. And if the children cannot enter the garden in heavy rain, they are very happy to use our own giant slide.
Our children are enthusiastic about the large, child-friendly garden. Very quietly situated and far away from the noise of the street, they can experience nature up close and move carefree in the fresh air. The play equipment on the playground is reminiscent of India. The Francke Foundations have maintained close contacts there for over 300 years. Several sandboxes, climbing facilities and slides offer enough space for all the children in our nursery.
For a good success of our pedagogical work at present 20 pedagogical woman employees and coworkers, Day Care Centre Manager and her deputy in charge are responsible in the group service. As a rule, the colleagues in group service are state-approved educators and in some cases have additional qualifications such as in creativity pedagogy and curative education care. Some of our colleagues are in training as educators in the year of recognition, in part-time training as educators or as state-certified specialists for day-care centres.
Anke Kohl, our head of the day care centre, is a qualified diploma pedagogue with a focus on rehabilitation pedagogy, has state recognition as a social pedagogue and has an additional qualification as a systemic consultant.

Children with prolonged diarrhoea, vomiting and fever must always be taken to a paediatrician. If the child has an infectious disease, the children's facility must be informed immediately. In principle, no medication may be administered in the children's facility. In exceptional cases, with the approval of the doctor and parents, it is possible to deviate from this requirement. If your child was ill or had an accident, we need a health report in any case. For new admissions, we require a health certificate from the doctor, which must not be older than 3 weeks.
