The staff caring for the children in our pre-school are trained and qualified pedagogues as required by law. They receive ongoing training biannually and keep in touch with the latest developments in their field.
We have monthly development meetings with the staff. Through grants from the EU we are able to provide our personnel to travel abroad, e. g. Spain and Ireland and get inspired.
The staff ensures that all children in their care feel secure, develop and grow in at their own pace according to their individual abilities and stage of maturity.
It is important that the staff give an example of their adherence to the values and methods described above in accordance with the curriculum which emphasises: respect, solidarity, freedom and the equality of everyone

Languages and learning go together helps in developing the child's identity. To encourage the language abilities of the children the teachers are at least, bilingual.
Further education & activity development
The teachers are responsible to follow the curriculum as described and to follow guidelines and principles. There are weekly teachers’ meetings where the staff can exchange experiences and evaluate their work. It is also an opportunity for continuously improving the quality of our work, the children’s comfort and the cooperation with parents.
Teachers are expected to convey hope, love and respect to the children where no one feels left out or injured and where the teachers, parents too feel welcome.
