Day care routine

For babies (up to 18 months) the daily schedule is mainly determined by the individual sleeping and eating rhythm of each child.

For all children aged 0 to 4 years old, we follow the VVE program ( Each month there is a new theme and activities are done with the children. Children are stimulated at their own individual level according to the following types of development: physical, social emotional, and spoken language. Additionally, the children get the opportunity to play on their own and thus develop their own creativity.

In collaboration with each child’s parent(s), we follow the child’s home routine as much as possible. In conjunction with the influence of each child’s home routine, for children (18 months to 4 years old) we follow the below daily schedule as much as possible. This schedule gives the child guidelines and the predictability of a set schedule gives the children a safe and secure feeling since they know what to expect.
