Nursery Group “Rasselbande”

Excursions and events
Regular excursions, e.g. to the market, to the game preserve  at Ochtersum, to primary schools or the joint expedition with the nursery’s bus, are part of our educational offer.
In cooperation with students or other nurseries we are watching theatre plays together or perform theatre- and  puppet theatre pieces ourselves.
The nursery group “Rasselbande” participates in the project ‘Bridge year – the last year as bridge year before primary school’. There are strong links between us and other nurseries, schools, universities, assocations and many other organisations. Together, we are planning and performing events.

Experiencing nature
The daily use of our garden with its many possibilities for adventures and games, the children can gather holistic experiences.  Thus, the fields of motor skills, senses, language and social interaction are particularly strengthened. There are regular excursions to playgrounds and sports fields in the nearby vicinity or the woodland of the Galgenberg, to gain even more nature experience. There is a weekly nature excursion day for each group.

Motor skills, fun and playing together are promoted by the daily active game at the garden, group- or multi-purpose room. For us, activity plays an important role. In 2007, the nursery group ‘Rasselbande ‘ has been awarded with the brand „BewegungsKita“ (active nursery).

Creativity and music
We offer various materials to the children to enable them to try out and create things. The early musical education plays an important role. It consists of active games, singing together, making music and dancing.

Due to a cooperation with the Musikschule e.V. Hildesheim, music gets incorporated into our educational concept in many ways. Once a week, teachers of this music school make music with all children of the Rasselbande, in different groups at our multi-purpose room or in the premises of the music school.

Parents are very much welcome
Parents may regularly visit parent-child-afternoons or parents’ evenings and play a part in the parents’ council of the Rasselbande or the project work.
Futhermore, there is a regular publishing of the ‘Rasselbanden-Info’ , which contains important information, dates, songs, recipes or crafts activities and an annual timetable at the beginning of the nursery year. For ‘new’  parents and children, there are informative meetings and an extensive phase of familiarisation.
