Unser Versprechen

MEHR ERFAHREN

SICHERHEIT

Wir beraten uns mit unserem Kinderarzt, um sicherzustellen, dass die Spielzeuge und Aktivitäten für jede Phase der Entwicklung des Babys geeignet sind und dass sie sicher zu handhaben sind.

PÄDAGOGISCH

Unsere Bildungsexperten überprüfen und versichern, dass jedes Material und jede Aktivität einen bestimmten Zweck erfüllt, der entweder die kognitive, motorische und / oder soziale Entwicklung des Babys fördert.

HYGIENISCH

Nach der Rückgabe wird jedes einzelne unserer Spielzeuge gründlich mit einem veganen und kindersicheren Desinfektionsmittel gereinigt.

MONTESSORI

Wir verwenden die Montessori-Philosophie als Inspirationsquelle, weil sie praktisches, selbstbestimmtes, kooperatives, freudiges Lernen fördert und die natürliche Entwicklung des Kindes unterstützt.
