What are the activity programmes for toddlers?

Our fantastic programmes for toddlers aid development through playful activities focused on music, movement, nature and arts and crafts.

Because group sizes are limited to ten children, we can meet the needs of each child and develop their individual abilities. Our experienced staff are supported by a range of specialist materials, spacious facilities and a unique set of teaching principles.

How does it differ from a nursery?

Kinderklub Westend is a privately run educational institution that focuses on developing children's skills through playful learning. We provide a wide range of services that run for defined time periods, including children's courses, activity programmes, evening workshops and cultural performances.

What principles does the Kinderklub Westend follow?

The principles of Kinderklub Westend are based on the approaches of a wide range of educators and various educational philosophies. The structures and content are not set in stone as new scientific findings are taken into consideration.

How are the activity programmes structured?

The morning group sessions are structured around a fixed routine and include two activities focused on different topics. A typical morning routine looks like this:

Time               Activity        

8.50 – 9.00      Drop-off

9.30 – 10.30    Activity

10.30 – 10.45  Quiet play

10.45 – 11.15  Snack

11.15 – 11.30  Quiet play

11.30 – 12.30  Activity

12.30 – 14.00  Pick-up

How many groups can I book onto for the Toddler Club activity programmes?

You can sign your child up for two, three or even four groups. 

How much does a place in a group cost?

The monthly fee for one place in a group is €270 incl. VAT, plus a one-off registration fee of €150.

The price includes professional care provided by two teachers and one carer, all necessary materials, organically produced snacks and all nappies/toiletries.

When does Kinderklub close for the holidays?

Please see the Kinderklub calendar for holiday dates.

What can I expect from the Culture Club?

The Culture Club is a theatre programme that is open to all children and their parents, featuring a variety of carefully chosen performances from the worlds of literature, music and theatre. At present, we cannot offer teacher supervision at the Culture Club.

What should my child bring with them for their first day on the activity programme?

Please remember to bring the following things on the first day:

  • a medical certificate
  • a favourite blanket, soft toy or other comforter
  • slippers
  • a change of clothes
  • attendance book and workbook (provided by the Kinderklub)

What snacks are offered?

We take care to ensure the children eat healthily. The small snacks we serve include organically produced fruit and vegetables (served raw) as well as crispbread or fresh bread. Children are given still mineral water to drink.
We do not prepare or serve hot food.
