Quality features of the cocon day nurseries

You’ve got high expectations when it comes to the care and education of your children? You’re right! Because the first few years of a child’s life are particularly formative. We are well aware of this responsibility and every day we are dedicated to giving the children the best possible support they need on their way and creating the free space to develop – into happy, healthy children.

Award German Kindergarten Seal of Quality

Since 2018 / 2019, both of our schools have been awarded the German Kindergarten Seal of Quality, which is awarded after an extensive audit by the independent organization PädQUIS.

„Elysée Kita“

Our daycare center in Bogenhausen is certified as an “Elysée Kita” by a panel of experts on the basis of the quality charter for German-French daycare centers.

In the daycare center’s daily routine, this means that in addition to the national language (German), communication takes place regularly and in an age-appropriate manner in the partner language (French). In our French-speaking groups, this is done according to the full immersion principle.

The project has the following goals, among others:

  • to create a structure that provides opportunities for all children to acquire a high level of competence in the partner language as well as basic knowledge of the social and cultural characteristics of the neighboring country
  • to stimulate, through the acquisition of this second language, a gradual lifelong build-up of competence in other languages
  • to stimulate interest in linguistic and intercultural experiences and knowledge

Educational partnership

When it comes to education, development and care, we work together with you as parents in a partnership – the basis for the best possible support and wellbeing of your child. You are the experts for your child – cocon teachers are the experts in education, development and care. It matters greatly to us that you are always well informed of our teaching work and that you have an insight into how your child is doing, what they are experiencing and what progress they are making. In this way we can support you in raising your child as best as possible. At the same time, cocon is reliant on your openness, your trust and feedback as parents.

Regular exchange takes place through:

  • The carefully kept documentation of our educational work
  • Developmental talks
  • On-the-fly conversations
  • Parents’ evenings and discussions
  • Themed evenings “cocon knowledge” and much more
  • And of course, always when needed
