BarUhle 2 consists of a partially open nursery group with an average of 21 children. They are supervised and accompanied by two full-time qualified educators, two part-time educators and one kitchen help. All children who are new to the facility are supported in the process of settling in following evaluated acclimatisation models for day-care centres.
Different activities take place every day. They adhere to the Hamburg educational recommendations and are aligned with the needs of the nursery children (individual, age-specific and holistic care). Our work is process-oriented, i.e. the focus is on the process and not the product.
Participating in the prepared activities takes place on a voluntary basis:
- Physical activity offers
- Nutritional offers
- Activities related to perception
- Activities based on music
- Garden days
- Creative activities
- Activities that focus on nature and environment
- District explorations
- Public transport
- Excursions with the Foundation’s own vans (e.g. farm, nursery trip)
- Water and tea (no drinks containing sugar)
- Low-sugar food
- Separate lunch for those with allergies, intolerances or for vegetarians
- Fresh fruit and vegetables every day
- Mainly organic and regional products
Observation and documentation:
To record development processes, development statuses, development changes and competencies, the staff makes regular use of development profiles. In addition, the development of each child is documented in the so-called “Ich-Büchern” (“Me books”) portfolio. The nursery school teachers write, for example, educational and learning stories, thereby making progressive development “visible” for children and parents.
Cooperation with parents
- Annual parental survey
- Parents’ council (“Voice of the parents”)
- Parents’ evenings
- Conversations at drop-off and pick-up time
- Annual development meetings
- Active contribution to celebration and events (Advent celebration, summer party, garden day, festival of lights)
The BarUhle 2 nursery opened in October 2004 in a separate flat-roofed building next to a paediatric practice as the eleventh facility of Stiftung Kindergärten Finkenau.
Qualified educators from a range of professions work at Finkenau’s facilities. Housekeeping and cleaning staff are also an integral part of the team. We are particularly committed to providing interns with qualified training.
Some teams receive additional support from volunteers or federal volunteers (“Bundesfreiwillige”).
Case discussions are held and pedagogical topics as well as conceptual and organisational matters discussed at the staff meetings that take place regularly. Our employees’ documentation and observation of the children’s development is an essential part of the work. All employees attend training courses on a regular basis.
