From the concept of kindergarten:

„The education of even a small child, therefore, does not aim at preparing him to school, but for life.“ Maria Montessori

The daycare centre works with different educational approaches. In Montessori preschool, children are grasping the same concepts as their peers
in a traditional classroom, but the idea is for children to learn individually and at their own pace by moving freely around the room and choosing from a wide range of hands-on, age- appropriate activities that are designed to teach specific skills. The primary aim of Montessori kindergarten is to help children learn concentration, motivation, self-discipline and a love of learning. It is very important to know, that the kindergarten works according to the seasonal Catholic Marchthaler calendar e.g. festivals, celebration.


– Advent cafés for families
– Summer party at the end of the kindergarten year
The day care centre has been located in an old villa for almost 60 years, which has Benn reconstructed several times over the years and modern and
classic elements complement each other. This ambience creates an architecturally attractive, friendly place.
