In order to give children the structure and security that they need, we have a consistent daily schedule at Zwingenberger Zwerge. A reliable routine is important for small children, so that they know what to expect throughout the day and so that teachers can ensure stability and flexibility.

A balanced and healthy diet is essential for the health and well-being of children. In our daycare center children are ensured a nutritious breakfast and lunch, along with an afternoon snack. Family-style mealtime settings give children the comfort and security that they need and also promote social skills and encourage good manners.
A nutritious and varied breakfast and lunch is offered daily – our lunchtime meal is catered by a local company. We offer a small afternoon snack before the children will be picked up.
Diapers and Care Products
Diapers and all care products (diaper rash ointment and cream, etc.) are purchased directly by the daycare center. Parents pay a monthly flat fee for the use of all products.
