In our Kita/daycare nursery, a regular daily routine is just as important to us as rituals that we perform daily and/or seasonally. We allow the children to experience our daily routine in a playful manner. Furthermore, we also impart knowledge to them in a way that is age appropriate. The children are allowed to give free rein to their imagination during free playtime and to live out their need for movement outdoors in the fresh air or in our jumping corner.

The Kita/daycare nursery is open from Monday to Friday. We care for children aged between 6 months and 4 years of age.
The first children are dropped off to the early morning session, which takes place together with the Preschool and Kindergarten in our early service room
All children are collected by their group teachers and go to their groups. Children can be dropped off until 9.00am.
We eat a healthy and varied snack together. First we eat our fruit platter and then we provide other small snacks such as crackers, bread, cheese, cold meats, yogurt with cornflakes, etc. Of course, we take allergies and intolerances into consideration.
After snack, we perform our morning ritual. All children meet in our circle after washing their hands and we sing our welcome song together. All children are allowed to take their photo and “get on board” our Kita train. In the morning circle, we explain to the children whether they’ll do an activity, play freely or go outside.
The first children are collected at 11.30am and we say goodbye to them. The parents receive feedback from the group leader on how the day was at the nursery.
All the other children meet for our midday ritual: the midday circle. We sing different songs and play finger or movement games that tie in with our current theme or the season.
After our midday song, we eat our lunch together, which Restaurant Mattenhof delivers to us. The restaurant cooks with seasonal and regional produce and caters to all our wishes.
We prepare the baby food ourselves. We cook the vegetables that the baby is allowed to eat and we freeze any portions that remain uneaten.
First, the children brush their teeth independently and then the childcare staff brush their teeth again, accompanied by a toothbrushing song.
Naptime begins and the children who are not asleep rest in our book corner. They look at a book while listening to soft music and take a rest from the morning. All other children go to sleep in our naproom.
The children are allowed to sleep as long as their parents wish them to.
Some children are picked up and we say goodbye to them. The parents receive feedback from the responsible caregiver on how the day was at the daycare nursery. Some children are brought to us at 13.00pm and spend the afternoon with us.
We do various activities such as reading a book aloud or going to the jumping corner or else we do some creative activity. The children can also play in the free play area or we take them outside to play.
We sing a snack song and eat our healthy snack together.
The children can be collected from 16.30pm. From 17.20pm we are on late duty and play until the parents arrive. The daycare closes at 18.00pm.
We normally hold the following events annually:
