The Hamburg curriculum recommendations have the goal of helping children to understand their relationship to themselves, others, and their environment. It divides the development of children into seven different areas:
Their personal and social development: Children learn to respect their own needs and those of others, to develop themselves, and to develop safety, trust and mindfulness in their interactions with others.
Their communicative and linguistic development: We support children and help them to speak and understand both English and German as well as providing them with their first experiences of reading and writing in both languages.
Their mathematical development: Children receive an application-oriented approach to mathematical concepts before they begin with calculations in the proper sense.
Their creative development: We offer children a wide range of materials and opportunities to develop themselves creatively, for example in the areas of art, music, dance, or poetry.
Their physical development: Age-appropriate physical development is not only important for health, but it also provides the foundation for children’s cognitive development. We encourage the development of children’s fine and gross motor skills, the ability to use tools safely, and an awareness of what’s required for a healthy lifestyle.
