The Pfützenracker nursery opened its doors in the spring of 2010 after a complete redesign that converted it from a kindergarten to a full nursery.
The Pfützenracker location now is of particular importance to Stiftung Kindergärten Finkenau. The history of Stiftung Kindergärten Finkenau began on these premises – the first facility was founded here.
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.
