Afternoon Program

Every afternoon of the week offers the children a different program. Educational and inspiring, the children gain new learnings and experiences.

Monday: Today we go to a nearby spacious sports hall. We do different activities and games, using a variety of equipment, supporting the children’s gross motor skills and coordinative development. Our experienced sports teacher leads the fun, in a well-structured and age-appropriate lesson.

Tuesday: Arts and crafts activities – let the children’s creativeness unfold!

Wednesday: Cooking, baking and sensual experiences are the themes of the day.

Thursday: The afternoon is all about music and rhythm. The children create their own instruments and music, make musical activities and much more.
Friday: We all love this day: It’s forest day! All Fridays all year round we spend the morning in woods nearby. The children enjoy exploring the surroundings, collecting materials for creative crafts, playing games and cozy snack time.
