Together but doing our own thing
Together we sing songs and tell stories. During lunch time we sit together at the table, sometimes with a little baby on our laps. As babies follow their own eating and sleeping habits. There are several moments during the day that we split up the group, because the smallest and the older ones tend to have different interests and abilities. Playing in a smaller group can also be comforting to a child. We don’t have to do everything together. There are plenty of activities for the older children and activities focused just on the little ones.
Learning from each other
In vertical groups, children can learn a lot from each other. The smallest ones see the oldest as an example and imitate them. The oldest learn how to be considerate to smaller children and they can even help with giving them a bottle. So much fun!
Vertical groups is a familiar concept to us, but it might not be for you. It refers to the age structure of our groups. In a vertical group you can find children of different ages: babies, toddlers and preschoolers. Your child will join us, usually when still a baby, and will stay in the same group for four years. This is comfortable for your child. They stay in a familiar surrounding with the familiar faces of our professionals.
