Bringing and picking up

Please always pick up your child on time. Unnecessary waiting can frighten children. If you do not manage to pick up your child from kindergarten on time, please notify the group educators (SMS) and the secretariat (sekretariat@dsnd.de) immediately. Please note that the teachers do not accept any phone calls during group hours. Children who come privately must be brought to kindergarten. Please make sure that your child's arrival was noticed by the educator. In order not to disturb the morning circles, which are important for the children to get off to a good start on the kindergarten day, please arrive at the kindergarten by 8:15 a.m. at the latest.

Please let us know if your child is unable to come to kindergarten. In this case, send a short note to the secretariat by email. An additional SMS to the respective group educators also helps us to see the group situation in the morning.

 

Bus use / pick-up authorization

Children from the age of 3years, who take the school bus, are brought to the group rooms by the respective bus escort. On the return trip, she brings the children back to the buses.

Children can only be picked up by people who can show a valid pick-up ID. These badges and school IDs are issued by the administration. If your child is invited to another child and does not go home the usual way after kindergarten, please notify us in writing by 4 p.m one day in advance, mentioning the date of the event, copied to the administration, by e-mail (sekretariat@dsnd.de) and the group educators.

We will inform you in advance about planned excursions and visits that we will undertake with children. You will receive relevant information by email. Please always send these information back to us immediately as "acknowledged".


Sick children

Sick children cannot come to kindergarten. The sick child must fully recover from the disease before joining Kindergarten again. This also applies in particular to the swimming and sports days. Infecting other children and spreading the disease must also be avoided. If your child falls ill with a serious, contagious disease (e.g. rubella, mumps, typhoid, etc.), you are obliged to notify the school at once.

If a child falls ill or does not feel well during kindergarten, we reserve the right to send them home immediately. It is therefore necessary that you can be reached by us and that the telephone numbers you have stored with us are up to date.

 

Own toys

Your children are allowed to bring their own toys on “Toy Day” (see weekly schedule) if they wish. Please discuss with your child which toy (please only one) they would like to bring with them. Your child should be ready to introduce their toys and share them with the children in the group. The kindergarten assumes no liability for the toys brought along.

 

Sharing Breakfast

On Wednesdays there is a "breakfast to share" in all groups. All the food brought by the children is covered for all children. Your child should decide together with you at home which healthy food they would like to bring with them on this day, e.g. fruit, vegetables (please already washed), boiled eggs, muesli, bread toppings and spreads, pancakes, quark dishes, yoghurt, juice, etc. (this is not happening for time being due to the pandemic)
