A sunny autumn day
Discovering forest with children
We watched the glowing leaves in different colors as they fell dancing to the ground. Aisha told us that many animals especially insects seek protection against the cold in the foliage. Reindeers and wild boars eat many fruits, acorns and move much less to save energy while squirrels and birds stock acorns and nuts in their nests, so they would have enough to eat during the winter time.

Children discover the letters
Montessori material – learning with all the senses
By clearly visible characteristics of specific letter lines, such as curves (B, O, P, R) and inclinations (Z, A, X), children learn to distinguish letters from each other. By tracing the same lines with their little fingers, the children develop a better intuition for the letters. At the same time, the pronunciation finally allows the children to assign the sounds to the letters. Regarding that everything takes place in the form of games, learning the letters becomes funny and also very efficient since we stimulate three channels of perception (visual, auditory and kinesthetic).

Powder snow for young and old
What melts faster, ice or snow?
March brought us a lot of snow, which made us very happy. Shoveling the snow was so much fun! We looked up into the sky and watched the beautiful snowflakes slowly falling on the frozen garden floor, and some were falling on our faces. The water has suddenly turned to ice and exhaling created small clouds.

Best conditions for our little ones
Our baby group is growing constantly
The little ones have grown into a well-rehearsed and harmonious group. The babies are happy to see each other again every day. We play, dance, do handicrafts, gymnastics and sing. At least once a day they can of course romp and move freely in our large garden, at the lake, forest or elsewhere outside depending on the weekly schedule. Especially the basic needs of toddlers for closeness, food, and sleep are fulfilled sensitively and individually by our educators.
