A warm heart, in the right place. Naturally, that goes for all of our workers, including our experienced child carers with their holistic approach: Our educational child care is based on Maria Montessori principles, and provides a relaxed, creative environment which allows children to enjoy their holiday in the mountains in a meaningful, lasting way. Walking to waterfalls, working with wood, archery and picnics in the wood… At our hotel with childcare, we place enormous importance on age-appropriate programmes for babies, toddlers, children and teenagers on 70 hours per week.
While the toddlers are expressing themselves through art in the painting studio, the slightly older kids are out exploring and learning to identify plants, trees and herbs. Kids come on in leaps and bounds in their abilities. “The most important thing,” emphasises Florian, the long-standing leader of childcare at the Feuerstein, “is not the knowledge-transfer in itself, but the strengthening of social skills which is demonstrated and developed through group activities.” Just one of the reasons why the Feuerstein counts as a leading hotel with child care in South Tyrol.
