The Kindergarten and nursery “Kalø Skovbørnehus” (previously: Rønde Frie Skovbørnehus) is beautifully located in the middle of a forest, only 5 min walk from the seaside. There are four groups of children aged 0-3, 3-4, 4-5 and 5-6 under the same roof with different outside activities and right now we have 50 children and 8 staff members.
The kindergarten activities follow the seasons very closely. When harvest takes place, there is a celebration to which families are invited. In winter, we make bonfires to make food and keep us warm. Sometimes when the weather gets rough, children and staff find shelter in the stables or do gymnastics/sports in the gym. However, in snowy winters we playi and sledge in the snow. There is also a lot of singing and playing, storytelling, drawing, painting and many other activities in which the volunteer is expected to take part.
The town of Rønde is only three minutes away from the kindergarten by car or bus. All necessary items can be bought in Rønde, which is located half an hour away from Aarhus, Denmark’s second largest city.
