Project Description: Montessori Kindergarden in Lower Saxony

The project is located in Göttingen in the south of Lower Saxony, Central Germany. As a Young Worker you will work in an integrated Institution with several Kindergartens with children between from one year of age to primary school age, including children with disabilities. The pedagogical concept is based on the principle of progressive education created by Maria Montessori as well as the latest pedagogical insights. For the kindergarden it’s important not to exclude anyone and create an atmosphere of tolerance and trust as well as a loving and understanding interaction.

“Help me do it myself”, they support the children in their developement by creating an environment that does not restrict the child but allows it to become active and learn according to ist personality. Children should have the opportunity to pursue its natural curosity and its urge to discover in order to develop in this way.
