Company child care facility

Growing & 
accompanying

At the TGW Kindergarten ("TGW Zwergennest"), our child care facility at our Marchtrenk location, our employees' children (from one year old to the beginning of school) are taken care of in nursery, pre-kindergarten and kindergarten groups. The focus is on individual growth and support – fully in line with our philosophy of "People in Focus – Learning and Growing".

"Discover, Learning AND GROWING"

In collaboration with the University of Education Upper Austria, we have developed a concept that integrates various approaches to early childhood education. The children are cared for by several different caregivers and teachers for each group. This childcare philosophy makes it possible to deal with each child according to their needs and stages of development – play as well as eating, drinking and sleeping.

The childcare philosophy is one that focuses on respectful and affective care, free play and autonomous development of movement – according to the three basic principles: delicacy of feeling, relationship-based teaching and an approach based on dialogue.

"Durch das moderne Konzept
und den höheren Betreuungs-
schlüssel in den Gruppen,
als gesetzlich vorgegeben,
können die Kinder
selbstständig entdecken und
ihr Lebensumfeld erobern.
Eine wirklich tolle
pädagogische Umgebung
zum Arbeiten für unser gesamtes Team."

Concept
OUR THREE 
BASIC
PRINCIPLES
  • SENSITIVITY

    Treating the children with sensitivity is critical to us. Paying attention to their verbal and nonverbal signals enables us to respond to them quickly. Appreciating and accepting the child's point of view in this process is of central importance to us. This creates an atmosphere in which kids and adults – and the children amongst themselves – can interact warmly and show respect and appreciation.

  • RELATIONSHIP-BASED TEACHING

    Children receive support from the teachers in their activities and in building self-esteem. For this to succeed, the teachers must observe with appreciation, recognise what the children's needs are and respond appropriately. A secure relationship is the basis for the children's self-directed learning.

  • ATTITUDE OF DIALOGUE

    The concept of the "TGW Zwergennest" is based on the image of the child a researcher and active agent in shaping their own identity. The task of adults is to have conversations with the children as equals, show appreciation for what they say and how they think and take them seriously. The collaboration with the parents is decisive, both in dialogue as partners and in everyday interaction.
