Once a week every group gets a visit from our music teacher. She sings songs about the seasons or the holidays with the children seated in a circle around her. The children move and dance to the songs or play on instruments. The songs are repeated at other times during the day. Another important activity for the smaller children is being read to. Our reading coach regularly selects new books. And if the weather permits it, we spend time outdoors every day. To move around freely or play on our own playground. Every year we celebrate the beginning of summer in our own garden together with all the children, their parents and the whole team. The same group goes on a day trip once a year. A nice way for you to get to know the friends of your child and their parents.
The children who come to our center after school can choose themselves in which activity they want to participate. The activities are based on nature and technology and include making bird houses, using the jigsaw or searching small water animals. The play rooms have special, thematic corners: there is a cushion corner for a quiet read or the children can draw at the drawing board, dress up in the dressing corner or play with building blocks in the building corner. When we go out, we visit the sands or the public playground. During school holidays we offer a special program of outings to for instance the beach, a museum or a children’s farm.
We also provide hot meals: tasty, fresh and healthy.
