• Toddlers explore the world

    Babies are courageous and creative explorers of their world, if they can always count on emotional support by a loving attachment figure who emotionally resembles a stabile basis and a secure haven. A securely attached baby exploring the world has an unbeatable support and will start with advantages in school.

    Education needs Attachment

  • Loved children are smarter

    Stillen und Nähe zur Mutter lässt das Gehirn wachsen

    Children whose mother has breastfed them and kept them with sensitive loving care throughout the day for the first 2-3 years of life have a bigger Hippocampus, the brainsection for learning, forming memories and coping with stress.

  • Early stress has lifelong consequences

    Frühkindlicher Stress

    Group Daycare is a stressful experience, especially for the youngest children. The longterm consequences can be dramatic as shown in several scientific studies. And we have only just begun to understand the grave impacts of toxic stress on brain development.

    Early Stress and its lifelong impact on development and health



    The future of our children is our responsibility. Only when they grow to have a stable and prosocial personality they will have sufficient energy and creativity to master the future. Children need adults who love and welcome them unconditionally – merely because they exist.

  • Our Vision - what we do

    Bindung und Urvertrauen als Voraussetzung für selbstbestimmtes LebenEvery child should have the chance to develop savely and soundly in his or her own way. Attachment and fundamental trust are indespensable basis for a healthy and prosper life. Our foundation sets priority to the fundamental needs of infants and toddlers, because that´s what we owe them.

  • Breastfeeding – Development, health and attachment

    Stillen ist gut für die Entwiclung, Gesundeit und die Mutter.-Kind-Bindung

    Breastfeeding on demand? As often and as long as a baby wants ? There is much debate on the evolutionary way, but breastfeeding naturally gets more and more support by Nurturegroups and scientific studies.
