A fairytale story – The Fairytale tram

In the Kita Zauberflöte that became reality
The book “Star dust in the Fairytale tram” is a beautiful Santa Claus story, which was highly appreciated in our morning circle by our attentive children. Filled with curiosity, we wanted to experience the fairytale tram’s journey ourselves. And behold! The Fairytale tram really was traveling in Zurich. From the , Santa Claus and its angels personally led and supported by our educators, we all went on the fantastic journey. The magical atmosphere was written in the faces of our little passengers and the Christmassy city center made the route to a real fairytale.
We are the first Child Care that made this Fairytale tram trip 😊

Visit from Santa Claus

Singing in German and English
Like every year, Santa Claus thought of our dear children and visited us. He found many new faces in the Day care and was surprised how fast the older children have grown since last year. He read a nice short-story from his big book and rewarded the children for the beautiful singing in two languages (German and English) with a sack full of tangerines and sweets.

Farm visit: Henhouse

… and homemade apple juice
For the children, the farm visits are always very educational activities, which are constantly accompanied by self-awareness and lots of fun. It was exciting to see hens running around in the henhouse, pecking the grains skillfully with their beaks and scraping the ground with their toes. The children were also able to taste and enjoy the delicious home-made apple juice and the dried apple rings.

Day trip to Jucker Farm

Many pumpkins and funny goats
We have seen so many pumpkins there: colors, shapes, sizes were distinguished well and easily by the children. We could take some pumpkins to the daycare. From this we have made beautiful Halloween decorations and then made a fine, warming pumpkin soup from the leftovers. In addition to the pumpkins, we were also able to see many different animals there. For instance, funny goats greeted us joyfully with a meeeeehhh!

Great fun in the gym

Chop chop, horse runs gallop…
In order to create the best possible conditions for the children, we regularly go to the gym every Wednesday. They have the opportunity to bounce, run, play ball, do as they like and have a lot of fun.

Civilian service volunteers

Kasperli- Theatrical performance
Two civilian service volunteers have provided civilian service in our child care. They have given children great pleasure in singing, playing football, but also with their puppet theatre performance. Our little stars sat curious in the audience at the beginning, but they quickly became an active part of the theatre.

Art- project

Painting like the great masters
Cartney our English and Art Teacher explained to the children step by step how to paint easily a beautiful painting of a famous artist. The templates for the children’s artworks were, for example, the shearing cut collages of Henri Matisse or colorful, abstract pictures and landscapes of Gerhard Richter.

A fantastic project for the group work!

Excursion at the “Park im Grüene”

Transformation of caterpillar to butterfly
In May there was much to discover for the children – nearby, but also a bit further away, as in the Park im Grüene. On a leaf of a tree we have discovered a a huge white cocoon! This inspired us to discuss the transformation of caterpillar to butterfly. The book “The Very Hungry Caterpillar ” also helped us. Then we sang the song “Butterfly you little thing ” and danced.

Spring is the best time

Who can find first the first flowers of spring?
We have tracked the spring with the children. What are the names of those early bloomers? Crocus? Tulips? Snowdrop? And what about the animals? Squirrels and bunnies… Speaking of bunnies, where does the Easter bunny hide? A lot of fun was also guaranteed while dyeing eggs and adorning the daycare with self-made Easter decoration.

Enthusiastic children at the farm

This time we visited the calves
The children had a lot of fun during the farm visit. It was sweet to see how the little calves moved, how they ate, and how they happily trew from time to time a firm little “moo” at us.
We all became quickly fond of these calves and love to visit them soon again.

It has snowed… hooray!

How beautiful are the snowflakes!
The fascinating thing about the snow is that the children can enjoy many winter experiences outdoors. In our garden we built a snowman and sled.It was funny to discover the animal trails in the snow and compare these with their own footprints. The winter theme also accompanies us in the warm group rooms with beautiful circular games and winter songs. The handmade snowflakes with children make our kita-windows very much embellish.
