We are the ultimate gourmets.
Development requires freedom. And there is pure pleasure in freedom. I regularly notice that we are the ultimate gourmets. Enjoyment is actually something very important: It opens up a place where we can work and live in a wonderful way. Activities we enjoy ourselves as educationalists have an infectious effect on the children.
Enjoyment starts at breakfast and continues when we get the books or paint boxes out. It should simply always be beautiful: Easy and cozy. Then we have the music circle before we go to the playground. Back in school, we enjoy a tasty lunch.
Waking up time after the afternoon nap is always particularly nice: We go into the sleeping room and sit between the children. Slowly one child after the other opens their eyes and is fit for the next round.
If someone moans we like to say: Come on, let’s have a nice day! There’s no moaning where things are nice and where there is lots of moaning, it usually isn’t nice. That is the nature of things. You can hardly believe it, but even the youngest ones understand that.
Children are specialists in enjoyment. In these first few years of life, children are simply there in an uncomplicated way and enjoy every single second.
Openness and relaxation are part of enjoyment. And brain scientists have already confirmed that relaxation provides the maximum level of creativity.
