The daily routine forms an orientation guide for the children aged one year and above. For children under a year old we use their individual sleeping/waking phases or physical needs as a guide.


In the kindergarten group breakfast times are flexible (8.00 am to 9.30am) – within this period (time and duration) the children can decide, independently and regardless of other persons, whether they are hungry or not.

Personal hygiene

Hand-washing, teeth-cleaning, nappy-changing, toilet and potty-training. The children have their nappies changed or use a potty/go to the toilet several times a day, as and when required.

Quiet time

Children who do not require any more sleep in the afternoons are given activities that they can engage in quietly.

Circle time

Regular unit with fixed rituals, such as greeting children, counting, relating information, finger games, stories, books, subject or project-related contents.
