What children want
The Replerhof children’s programme concentrates on children’s needs
Our children need roots, to allow them to grow. What’s true about plants is true about people. That’s why it is not only good for children but also for us adults to look back from time to time to our origins in nature and to reconnect.
We are a part of nature, it is around us and within us. Sometimes we forget to listen to nature! When we step outside and surround ourselves with the trees and leaves, with mountains and the blue sky, our souls begin to move in line with nature. And we are well.
Our country club is a farm kindergarten for all children between 3 and 12 years old. We offer 35 hours a week of child care with a nature based programme.
Our qualified nanny Sonja takes the children from Monday to Friday between 10.00 and 17.00 on a journey of discovery – through meadows and forests and around the hotel and farm.
Our children’s programme is an invitation to take part in various activities. Alongside the fixed activities on the farm – feeding the sheep, stroking the rabbits, looking at the Ponies – free play time in our large outdoor playground or in the indoor playroom is also a guaranteed part of our child care. We also think it important to let children be children and would like to pass on our passion for nature and the animal world in the national park.
“There is no such thing as bad weather! Therefore I request that you dress your children accordingly, including a change of clothing when they are in child care. I want to bring your children closer to nature regardless of the weather or season.” - Sonja
We have a large playground for children, with slides and climbing frame, with swings and sand pit, an area to run around and let of steam, while parents can enjoy a glass of organic wine on our sunny terrace and watch the games from a distance.
Also inside we have a spacious playroom to romp about in, to play and do craft work. In the evenings we show exciting children’s films.
In the family hotel Replerhof it is not only adults that get to experience the enjoyment of the unique wellness treatments, but children as well: In our everyday routines we expect children to sit still and behave themselves. This expects them to understand their feelings and control them. When this doesn’t always happen it causes stress. Therefore it is good for children to decide between excitement and relaxation with a children’s massage in a comfortable atmosphere and learn to understand themselves better.
