Therefore, we offer a pre-school (Reception) for children who start school the following year.
Many of the children who attended our day care centre go on to enrol in the pre-school (Reception) that shares its location with our Phorms Campus Hamburg. With this in mind, we take a two-pronged approach to prepare the children for the transition. The general preparations include discussion groups and short projects on issues concerning pre-school children such as independence and self-confidence. For all of our activities with children, we consider it important to delegate responsibility to the children in order to build up their self-confidence and give them a sense of security.
In the Reception classes, the children gradually get used to being in a school environment. The pre-school rooms are designed to be similar to classrooms. Although the daily timetable includes plenty of play time, the children also learn to concentrate more and start to adjust to a school atmosphere.
