How we create communication channels
A clear communication between parents and pedagogues is one of the most important standards in the Biberbau kindergarten.
Our daily Biberheft
As a practical aid for daily exchange, the Biberheft supports us as a kind of diary in which processes are documented, information and messages are exchanged and everyday life is reflected on.
Documentation and reflection on the Biberbuch
The development of your child is documented in the Biberbuch. With photos and stories, the attachment pedagogue reports on the child's development by writing dowm individual learning stories and thus also has a basis for our regular parenting talks with you. Later it will be a nice memory of kindergarten for you and your child.
Documents for at home - our parents' folder for you
How exactly does the familiarization work at the Biberbau? What do you as a family need to prepare and consider for a good start? Who are your contacts for various issues? When you start in kindergarten, many questions may arise. As part of the admission interview, you will receive a parents' folder from us with all the important information about everyday life and the processes in the Biberbau kindergarten. In addition, the parents' folder is also stored in the Biberbau intranet - so you have easy access to it at any time.
Talk to each other - parents' evenings and parties
Exchange and community - these are two important aspects for good cooperation and harmonious group formation. At our parents' evenings and the kindergarten parties, which both take place twice a year, you have the opportunity to get to know our pedagogues and other parents personally. You get a lively insight into everyday kindergarten life and can exchange ideas with other parents. If necessary, online participation is also possible.
Biberbau Digital - Our intranet and newsletter for parents
The Biberbau kindergarten in compact form for your pocket - or your PC at home? No problem: we will continuously provide you with the latest information via our parents' intranet. We provide you with a monthly newsletter with practical tips for implementing the Montessori principle with game suggestions for at home, show you the progress of our monthly topics in kindergarten and new photos from your child's everyday group life. At the same time, you will find useful information such as forms, contact options for individual contact persons and much more in the secure area “My Biberbau”.
Advice and exchange - our parents' council
The Biberbau parents' council offers a direct interface between our kindergarten team and you as a family: the annually newly elected committee with representatives of the individual groups, together with the site management and the sponsor, comes together twice a year. At the meetings, for example, innovations in site management and ideas from parents are discussed. You always have the opportunity to approach your parent representative with your own suggestions or advice. The team looks forward to your commitment.
Educational partnership through regular reflection
Individual talks about the development of your child are the basis of our educational partnership with you. Based on the continuous observation of the child, which is documented in the Biberbuch, and the documentation method according to Beller & Beller, we focus on the interests of the children. Our development talks are held twice a year by your child’s attachment pedagogue with you as parents. This gives you a very detailed and trustworthy description of the current development of your child. Participation in the development talk is also possible online.
The child at home - use our parenting advice
Do you have specific questions about your child's development? Do you feel overwhelmed in a particular situation or are you unsure which behavior is appropriate? Our experienced pedagogues and our site management offer you competent advice on all topics that you need at home. These can be questions about your child's development towards independence, conflict management within the family, but also general issues relating to parenting, sleeping, eating, media consumption and much more. Appointments with our parent counseling can also be made online.
We are happy to support you - online parents‘ workshops and specialist workshops
The Biberbau offers various workshops for interested parents, which are held by our pedagogues as specialist lectures with question and answer sessions. Eight times a year there is the opportunity to train on topics such as "Farewell to the diaper", "Media education for children", "Nonviolent communication between parents and child". The workshops take place online and in the evening - so you have the opportunity to take part despite a stressful day at work. Topics are selected and registering is possible via the Biberbau intranet.
Take advantage of funding opportunities for kindergartens - we will be happy to support you
A low family income should not be a reason that your child cannot visit the Biberbau. We offer parents competent support in applying for MA-10 funding. And the prices in the Biberbau kindergarten will also be reduced for families with a low income. Talk to us - we are happy to help!
Everyday support - our Biberbau Hygiene Box
For many families, the week is closely timed between work, school, kindergarten, household chores and organizing that everything is in place at all times to meet necessary needs. At least with the latter, we can relieve you a little by providing our Biberbau hygiene boxes: Depending on the booking time of your child, you can book a box every month with all materials for daily use - from diapers, toothbrushes, cream to bed linen. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you want to register for this offer.
We are here for you - your contact person at the Biberbau
Many people help to implement the philosophy of the Biberbau kindergarten in everyday life. Our team will meet you at different levels - and different departments are responsible for your concerns.
You can discuss all educational topics directly with the site management of the respective houses. She is your direct contact person from admission to our locations to parenting advice. As a manager, she also provides advice to the team on site and ensures the quality of the educational work with your child.
In the group of your child, the group leader and your attachment pedagogue are your direct contacts. The latter will carry out the familiarization with you and inform you about the group during the parents' evenings. The attachment pedagogue will also show you the individual development of your child in the development talk.
The Biberbau kindergarten has a separate administration so that the pedagogical team can concentrate on all children's concerns and also to provide a contact person for you as parents. As the sponsor, Köhling Familien Services gGmbH has the main responsibility for all administrative and organizational work in the Biberbau kindergarten. The professional administration is carried out by our management.
You will find all contact details and responsibilities in our team chart on the Biberbau intranet.
Your opinion is important to us - Biberbau parent surveys
Your feedback is important to us - after all, as the Biberbau team, we want to keep developing in terms of content and concept in order to create the best possible care environment for your child. In order to be able to determine exactly what moves you as a parent, we provide regular parent surveys via our Biberbau intranet. We not only hear your opinion, but also, if possible, include your wishes in our concept after evaluating the survey results.
The Biberbau opens its doors
On its Kindergarten tours the Kindergarten Biberbau offers insight into our concept, our house and the opportunity to meet our staff. We are looking forward to seeing you there!
After clarification withe the healthcare office, we are from now on allowed to offer Kindergarten tours again. We are responsible for guaranteeing a one meter minimum distance between our visitors and will therefore decide on our own if the visitors will attend in small groups to make sure the minimum distance is guaranteed.
