Sustainability

Nature

We are particularly committed to the topic of sustainability: in developing your child’s awareness as well as living example in the daily routines of the center. The children should learn to respect their environment and grow into responsible human beings.

In addition, we only use products, as far as possible, that have been produced without animal testing and only contain natural ingredients.

Nutrition

Balanced, organic and varied food is important to us. We freshly cook and prepare the meals in the in-house kitchen with a lot of love and joy. Thereby we particularly pay attention to sustainable production at the suppliers level and promote an eating culture with all senses. In addition to unpacked food shopping, we also integrate walks to farms nearby. Meat, poultry and fish are completely removed from our menu. Cooking together is the best way to make healthy food tasty for children. It’s fun and quickens the appetite! In addition, children learn to deal with food preparation in a playful way.

Swaddling and Fostering

We use cloth diapers made of bamboo out of conviction. These not only protect the sensitive baby bottoms, but also the environment. They are lined with a collecting insert so that the “big business” can be disposed of directly. The diapers are washed at 90 degrees and reused. We provide the PopIns diaper in the center. Washable models that you bring with you are of course always welcome. We would be happy to familiarize you with the reusable cloth diapers. In our center we use as many reusable everyday items as possible, such as towels, refillable dispensers or e.g. compostable toothbrushes. For all items we also aim to use products that have not been tested on animals.

Infrastructure

All buildings in the Leuengarten district comply with the Minergie-P standard and are equipped with a brine-water heat pump. All wood-metal windows have triple insulating glazing. The underfloor heating with room thermostat ensures a pleasant room climate.

Environmentally conscious team

We optimize our resources and plan sustainably for the long-term. Wherever possible, we avoid plastic packaging or the use of disposable dishes, and treat our food and raw materials with care.

Recycling

Recycling of packaging but also of materials for handicrafts are part of everyday life for us. This does not necessarily mean that we have to limit ourselves, as we combine it with good planning and forward-looking purchasing.
