Oh Happy Day......daily routine at Kupferhof

By Andrea Fleischmann | Project Leader

After wake up between 7.00 and 7.30 am the kids get washed and dressed for breakfast. Breakfast, like all meals, is taken with the group in the dining room. Breakfast time is from 8.00 to 9.30 am.

At about 10.00 am the kids gather for the daily morning circle to start the day with a morning song: a ritual that brings the children together and signifies the start of the day.

Until lunch (from 12.00 to 1.00 pm) there is time for walks, excursions, time to make music or to play in or outside, leisure time or time for therapy. The nature-near location of Kupferhof and its facilities assure varied activities.

After lunch and a short rest time the kids are well prepared for the afternoon program, only interrupted by afternoon tea at 3 pm. A team of clowns visit Kupferhof regularly as well as therapy dogs. Other planned projekts may be baking, painting, crafting or excursions or.....

Between 5.30 and 7.00 pm the kids gather again in the dining room for dinner.

Afterwards day will be completed with another daily ritual, the evening circle.

Then the children are prepared to get ready for bed. Again the care staff tries to follow individual bed time rituals.

 

Although this daily schedule sounds like an constantly repeating tight time schedule every day is different. All children are treated differently due to their disabilities or abilities or their mood, their wishes or individual rituals. So some children may play in the garden, while others have fun inside and again others get special therapy .Nevertheless the children are encouraged to spend time and to do things together because this promotes their social and pysical skills.

One reason why the kids have meals together.

Our primary goal is to enable all our guests (disabled children, parents and siblings) a few enjoyable days in relaxing surroundings.
