TEJAY’S Concept

At TEJAY'S we put emphasis on a loving daily childcare with a lot of patience. Children should unfold their inner wings and thus discover themselves and their social skills. This is why from the very beginning we pursue a holistic approach in regards to early childhood stimulation and education, where playing and learning are interconnected. Tejay’s concentrates on nurturing the dynamic spiritual and physical development of small children in order to prepare them for their later life.
Tejay’s holistic early childhood stimulation is built on the foundation of loving child rearing. It is supported by three main parts, that have the same importance: The stimulation of cognitive development (education), social competence (personality development), and the discovery of ones own talents (creative and motor skills).

Our children have the right to the best possible education from the start, but also to be children and enjoy their childhood.

Children learn primarily by observing, experimenting, mimicking and playing. This requires the usage of all the senses. This learning principle can be illustrated by means of an example: A child cannot cut a piece of paper in a straight line. Normally, we would continue to practice cutting with the child over and over again, but by doing so we put importance on the child’s weakness and ruin his motivation. It is better to strengthen their senses: the child sees the line, can the child sense it? Can the child walk on a straight line? Grasp space? Through the experience with broad motor skills, children can then accomplish fine motor skills and suddenly your child will start cutting in a straight line and has a feeling of success and feels proud. The child’s self-confidence will be strengthened and this is exactly what we want to encourage.

We believe the most important component in personality formation are social and emotional skills that characterize and distinguish us on how we deal with other people, our world and the common rules of social living. Independence, self-responsibility and sense of community are the foundation for emotional competence. – fundamental for children nowadays.

We can effectively support children when they are part of a group to stimulate social and emotional skills. Children play together, fight, share, help each other, and negotiate compromises. They must learn to cooperate with others, but also to be assertive. Our Emotions are equally diverse and encounter us on a daily basis: fun and happiness, curiosity and impatience, fear and sadness, jealousy and anger. These new experiences are followed by many new challenges and learning processes. This is why they need our support.

What is important is that we try to grasp the problems and understand how children think to be able to support the development individually, without breaking or bending these small individuals out of shape.

Sport, music, logic thinking: talents are like muscles, they only develop when you build them up.

Our facilities have play and gym rooms that invite our children to climb, jump and practice their balance, so that they obtain a sense of space and heights, encourage a sense of balance and coordination and playfully train their body tension. The little ones develop a self-confidence in their capabilities as well as a healthy assessment of what their boundaries are.

In unseren Kreativräumen arbeiten wir mit verschieden Farben, Materialien und Techniken: Vom Farbmatschen mit Händen und Füßen bis hin zu Sieb- oder Glasdrucken. Wir formen und gestalten mit Gips oder Ton und basteln mit jahreszeitlichen Naturmaterialien. Wir fördern die Kreativität und trainieren die Feinmotorik und die Sinne über Haptik und Farbenspiel. Die Kinder bekommen ein Gefühl für Raum und Perspektive und üben Geduld und Ausdauer, Dinge zu Ende zu bringen.

Auch die Musik ist fester Bestandteil unseres Alltags bei TEJAY’s. Beim gemeinsamen Singen und Musizieren erlebt sich das Kind in der Gruppe, erfährt die Möglichkeit auf die Gruppe Einfluss zu nehmen, lernt aber auch, sich zurückzunehmen und auf andere Kinder zu hören. Außerdem macht Musik Spaß und bringt gute Laune.
