The Studentenwerk Göttingen offers full-time, loving and high-quality care, education and training by skilled staff for children from nine months to elementary school age in six day care centres. The facilities of the Studentenwerk Göttingen care for the children of student parents, university staff and generally children from the city of Göttingen. All institutions are guided by the principles of the situational approach and are inspired by the influences of reggio education as well as by Maria Montessori and Emmi Pikler.
The acclimatisation period according to the Berlin acclimation model represents another important cornerstone of the conception of our pedagogy. An important aspect of the accompaniment of the children on their development path is the cooperation with parents and families. We value good contact between parents and educators for the benefit of the children.
In all our facilities, everyday integrated language education has a high priority. "Language, as a key to the world" is a core element of our educational work and finds support in learning and developmental documentation about, with and for the child, which is prepared by the educators and is available as a portfolio to each child.
Our facilities are located in central and infrastructurally interesting locations in the city of Göttingen. To meet the wishes and needs of the children entrusted to us and their families, each institution has its own emphasis in pedagogical work. These range from bilingual and everyday integrated language learning and language education through integrative-inclusive offers, intercultural learning to aesthetic education, movement and care in a family atmosphere. In our facilities, all children enjoy full board. Bringing along food is, therefore, not necessary.
