About Us

The staff of the Kinderinsel consists of six pedagogical specialists and one housekeeper.

A good staffing ratio, especially when working with our U3 children, is part of the philosophy of our facility in order to provide good educational and childcare work and to respond individually to the children. In addition to our core team, we have a core of temporary staff who support us in times of vacation or illness.

It is important to us in our pedagogical work that we can offer the children a good care ratio even then.

An appreciative and respectful team culture and cooperation are close to our hearts. In weekly team meetings, we reflect on group activities and our pedagogical work, we design weekly plans, and plan new projects and celebrations.

Continuous training and further education are an integral part of our work, as this is the only way to further develop our staff’s areas of competence and to gather new scientific knowledge that can be incorporated into our pedagogical work.

We see ourselves as a place of training for school interns and are happy to support suitable applicants in getting to know the profession of “educator”.
