Your children may attempt a nature-educational program “farm-life with animals” from 2nd to 6th of July. From 9th to 13th of July we offer a media-workshop, during which the children have the opportunity to produce and edit their own film.
Both programs are organized in cooperation with the Kindertagespflege Göttingen e.V. and can be booked separately. If you have questions regarding the content of the programs, please contact Simone Taschemski and Catherine Schwerdt, ferienkids@kindertagespflege-goe.de
