Team: The same two nursery teachers look after the children every day and are therefore stable, reliable care providers. In addition, there is another permanent team member, who supports the daily group activities and can also take over as a substitute in the case of illness. Interns who complete a practical part of their training or studies are also a regular part of the daily group routine. 

Introduction to the Approach of the Wuselhöhle:
Children are cared for in a safe setting where all their basic needs can be met. These include comfort, attention, movement, appreciation, and rest. The approach of the Wuselhöhle is to provide children with a variety of experiences and to allow them to be self-determined. We work with fixed rituals and structures to give the children a sense of security. We understand our work not as education, but as accompanying and supporting learning processes. Children learn and discover with all their senses. For this, children need a safe, protected setting in which they can experiment. The Wuselhöhle offers exactly this setting.

Oma-Opa-Hilfsdienst in Bremen Mahndorf

For casual childcare jobs, the support of the grannies and grandpas from the Oma-Opa-Hilfsdienst can be booked against payment. Students have had good experiences with this service. This is what they say about themselves: “Our carers usually look after children from baby to school age for a maximum of two to three half days a week. In an emergency, we help as quickly as possible, if necessary, also without charge.”

Further information is available on the website: (in German only)
