Team

Only those who are enthusiastic can inspire others.

We work professionally as well as with our hearts and understanding. These qualities and an educational approach to childcare make our team outstanding. It’s our special know-how and enthusiasm for a longterm and valuable pedagogical work in cooperation with the kids and parents that distinguish our company. A respectful and professional collaboration within the team as well as with the parents/guardians is possible through further training, team building and quality management spread over the whole year. The future team will be made of two groups. The children will be cared for by two qualified childcare employees, and apprentice or trainee per group.
