Unit Pupporna is located on Askersundsgatan 14.
At the unit Pupporna , we have a place for altogether 28 children.
The children in age 1 -4 years old are in great need of routines, security and order. Every day should look the same and every thing should have its own special place.
All children have a need to develop their independence. They need also help to do things by themselves. A little child is very interested in the daily chores that we, adults, do everyday. We put a great emphasis on this factor.
Pupporna unit’s entire environment is therefore adapted to children’s size, needs and interests. It should be fun and appealing to explore, play and learn. A day at
A day at Pupporna consists of a work session, circle time in Swedish or English, outdoor activities, meals and rest.
During the work session children are working with Montessori material, paint, bake, read and play.
At Pupporna, children get an opportunity to perform various tasks that they can see adults do at home, such as setting the table, clearing the table, sweeping, cutting fruit, etc.
At Pupporna we talk Swedish and English with our children. The staff who have English as their mother tongue speak only English, everyone else speaks Swedish.
Circle time can be in Swedish and in English. During circle time we talk about days of the week, months, seasons, weather, and discuss different themes: family, animals, body, etc.
Motion is particularly important in early childhood and therefore, we have a daily outdoor play and a trip to the forest or other places every week.
