Opening Hours

Mo.-Fr. from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.

Welcome to Waldkindergarten


We, the "Plänterhorst", have had our location since 2001 on the grounds of the "Am Karpfenteich" daycare center at Treptower Park 70 (see also Am Karpfenteich daycare center). At our location we have a heated shed available as a pedagogical room and shelter, as well as the 3000 m² fenced natural and kitchen garden. In the Plänterhorst forest and nature kindergarten, 18 children aged 3 years are accompanied by appropriate specialist staff until they start school.

The opening hours are Mo.-Fr. from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The majority of the daily routine takes place in the Plänterwald and/or the natural garden. Ple(ä)ntern is a forestry term that means something like "to clear". This means that trees of different age groups grow up there at the same time.

We differentiate between our summer daily routine (May 1st to October 31st of a year) and our winter daily routine (November 1st to April 30th of a year).

An annual plan regulates our daycare year from 01.08. until 31.07. one year.

By building up a constant, mixed-age children's group, we want the children to have fun.

Experience variety and excitement, and promote their skills and individuality in the course of education.


Our pedagogical rooms, such as the nature and kitchen garden, are designed in such a way that they can be used in different ways by the children and thus represent an invitation to the children's world of experience. Education begins at birth. Here we tie in individually with the child. Goals that we pursue in our pedagogical work form our "Mosaik-WeG".


Mosaik – WeG Structure
Means different ped. Content and focal points that are networked in all our facilities. However, due to the different locations, different weightings are experienced.

  • education in everyday life
  • documentation and presence
  • Gestalt – Pedagogical contact concept
  • Clear room concept
  • Encouraging the child's competency areas
  • pedagogical attitude
  • Active implementation of the Berlin Education Program (BBP)
