Summer party in the kita day care center "Campulino"

On July 01, 2022, we celebrated the 4th birthday of our daycare center together with our children, parents and many guests.

The motto of the celebration was "Oh jee, Oh Schreck, the dirt has to go" and marked the end of our sustainability project. The children had prepared a small program and proudly presented it to the parents and guests.

From the youngest we heard the poem about the garbage truck and the older groups sang songs about plastic and garbage collecting, accompanying themselves on their self-made instruments.

Our parents prepared a colorful buffet. The wide selection of sweet and savory food was the crowd puller of the afternoon.

The pedagogues and interns offered the children different stations to be creative. The children had a choice of an obstacle course, paper making in the nature garden, making a tic-tac-toe game out of recycled materials, and target throwing. In the middle of the garden, our trash monster was created, from all the trash collected over the past few weeks. Each child who had mastered at least three stations received a Pixie book on the topic of sustainability as a reward.

Even though the sun didn't come out that day, at least the rain let up and we were able to spend this afternoon outdoors with all the parents and guests.

We would like to thank all the supporters, helpers and organizers whose commitment helped to create this highlight for our children.

We all remember this afternoon as very harmonious and entertaining.

Easter preparations

The school beginners of our daycare center have agreed to support the Studentenwerk in its Easter campaign for the students.
30 white eggs were decorated with much joy in the last weeks.

In the process, the preschoolers learned new design techniques, such as marbling, the napkin technique, or rolling in paint in a shoebox.
Now we wish the "big ones" a lot of fun while searching!

Project Light & Shadow of the Green Groups (23.02.22)

In the past 3 weeks, it could be observed that it was often very dark in a room in the green group area and many different lights shone from it. Here, the children tried out different light and shadow experiments and all kinds of light sources on their own every day.

In a small question and answer session on topics such as "What sources of light are there anyway?" or "What would happen if there were no light?" the children were first able to explain their ideas on the topic and share what they would like to try out and explore during the project. This resulted in great ideas, experiments and many exciting activities.

The project was very well received by all the kids and we would also like to thank all the parents who supported us with materials and ideas.


Pre-Christmas at Campulino

Many thanks to our dedicated parents who donated this beautiful Christmas tree to us. With shining eyes, our children admired the tree on Friday and hung their Christmas wishes on the branches.

We wish all parents and children a wonderful pre-Christmas season!

"The colorful world of creepy-crawlies"

...this is the project theme that the "Green Group" has been working on for the past five weeks. Since April, many children have been searching incessantly in the garden for earthworms and fire bugs. Small homes were also built for ants and beetles and equipped with suitable furniture made of leaves, soil and sticks. The teachers took this as an opportunity to create an exciting project together with the children.
Often they went out to the meadows and paths to collect everything with magnifying glasses and observe what was crawling. In the kindergarten, they then looked at everything together and looked up in books which insects they were dealing with. Of course, all the little animals were then released again and again.
Small games, relaxation stories, handicrafts and an exciting insect book box completed the project content. To conclude the project, some children made small insect hotels out of cans. The children wrapped colorful wool around the cans and then filled them with various natural materials in which small creepy-crawlies feel at home. The insect hotels now decorate our new kitchen garden and we are already super excited to see who will soon move in.

Weather project in the light green group

April April, he doesn't know what he wants..." The Campulino children of the Light Green Group took this very phenomenon as an opportunity to spend three weeks in April dealing with this topic in detail. Many important questions of the children were explored and clarified together. How does rain actually get into the clouds? How many colors does a rainbow have and how do we determine the weather? In addition to a small weather library, many great works of art and products were created through weather experiments, which are still used and observed daily by the children.

Children planted butterfly meadow

Last year (2020), the children of the Campulino daycare center already distributed the seeds for the butterfly meadow. With great joy, the seeds were distributed on a 1000 m² piece of meadow at the residential home Vettersstraße 70 in Chemnitz.

The project was sponsored by the Saxon State Foundation for Nature and the Environment (LaNU), which wants to make a small contribution to the preservation of our beautiful nature with the project "Puppenstuben gesucht - Blühende Wiesen für Sachsens Schmetterlinge" of the initiative "Sachsen blüht".

This year (2021), the children will be able to observe for the first time how the seeds begin to sprout and how various insects will enjoy the diversity of the meadow.
