We are moving…

For us, the Stra­ßen­kin­der­gar­ten, this means we will be moving appro­xi­mate­ly midd­le of 2023 to Lüzt­ner Stra­ße in Lin­denau. In the new buil­ding we will expand our size to 81 child­ren, inclu­ding up to 9 child­ren with inte­gra­ti­on status.

At the new place we can even­tual­ly imple­ment several of our visi­ons: we will have our own kit­chen to cook our own meals and the­re will also be a „gar­den for litt­le explo­re­res“ to grow vege­ta­bles and herbs tog­e­ther with the child­ren. So our future Stra­ßen­kin­der­gar­ten child­ren can dis­co­ver from seed to table how our food is growing.

The Straßenkindergarten

The Stra­ßen­kin­der­gar­ten is a par­ents’ initia­ti­ve with an own sup­por­ting asso­cia­ti­on, foun­ded alrea­dy in 1993. It’s a place for adults and child­ren to meet, feel com­for­ta­ble and inspi­re each other in the sen­se of a holistic deve­lo­p­ment. This hap­pens wit­hin the frame­work of fami­ly-sup­por­ting work as well as a part­ners­hip-based col­la­bo­ra­ti­on of all members.

The invol­ve­ment of par­ents and the co-deter­mi­na­ti­on of child­ren are the sup­por­ting pil­lars of our con­cept. The edu­ca­tors see them­sel­ves as com­pa­n­ions and faci­li­ta­tors as well as ins­ti­ga­tors for the child­ren and the­re­fo­re crea­te an atmo­s­phe­re which is allowing space for individuality.

In Stra­ßen­kin­der­gar­ten, child­ren and their fami­lies are wel­co­me, regard­less of their ori­gin, reli­gi­on, gen­der, social sta­tus and spe­cial phy­si­cal, men­tal and spi­ri­tu­al con­di­ti­ons. We stand for inclu­si­on and oppo­se exclusion.
