The aim of GFKB crèches is to give children a place where they feel safe and comfortable. They are open to all children, irrespective of why their parents want to bring them to crèche.
Our focus is on children’s wellbeing and we treat every child as an individual. We don’t control or shape the child. Instead, we are by their side. We allow the child to have their own experiences and encourage their own decision-making where we can responsibly do so.
We see ourselves as an educational institution giving children the opportunity to expand their knowledge and their social and interpersonal skills alike. Small children develop their ability to think through actions based on their interests. Early years education takes place when the children interact with their social and physical environment. In that sense, education is equivalent to self-education. We see integration and inclusion as part and parcel of our duty in society. We care for all children in our crèche, from every cultural and social background. We also care for children with special needs.
The hallmarks of our partnership with parents are regular communication and mutual respect and esteem. We take a tolerant, non-judgemental approach to different family constellations and their different ways of life.
