As part of the Kleiderkammer session, and initially in order to keep the children safely off the streets, a small children’s work has begun. This is essentially play-centred. We can currently get anywhere between 2 and 9 children (aged 2-11) and an increasing number of teens also. The little ones are developing language skills while the older ones appreciate the conversation. They have also become friends and that across ethnic / cultural backgrounds.
As the pandemic recedes, we have welcomed back some ‘regulars’ that we have not seen for a very long time. It shows though that the needs, both material and social, have not gone away.
In addition these is the Kinder Stunde which runs on saturday mornings and is a learning hub.
