Anthroposophy focuses on the personal development and learning capacity of every child. The pedagogical staff (‘juffies’) are supervisors in this process.
The Gouden Poort and ‘t Rozenpoortje work from an anthroposophical pedagogy. Every child has the ability to develop independently. The child orients itself playfully on the doings of the adults around him.
Close to nature
In the anthroposophical playgroups, the seasons and annual festivals are central to the annual rhythm. The activities are close to nature. Children can experience the seasons with us because we go outside every day, even in rain and wind. This is reinforced by the songs, verses and stories that we adapt to this. We also have as many natural play materials as possible. This way toddlers can use their imagination to the maximum in their play.
Natural daily routine
The fixed morning rhythm, annual rhythm, natural materials and organic food play an important role. Children are cared for in an atmosphere of warmth and security. We offer a safe and inviting environment in which the child can play and experience and develop his own qualities.
We alternate active free play with moments to relax again. The daily circle, play and eating moments are clearly demarcated by rituals and songs. We bake our own bread. The smell of the bread in the oven stimulates the senses and teaches your toddler how food is formed.
The locations are serenely furnished and that gives plenty of room for development. You can best experience this atmosphere yourself. You are most welcome to come and have a look at one of our anthroposophical locations:
