A real treasure chest!
Inauguration of the DHPS reading room for kindergarten and pre-school

It took only two months from when the idea first began to the opening. This reflects the smooth and harmonious process and the excellent cooperation of all participants.
In this lovingly and comfortably designed room, various departments can now read aloud to the children, look at books with them and let their imaginations run wild while telling stories.
“Regularly reading to children and their natural handling of books in kindergarten and pre-school demonstrably leads to higher linguistic competence, better concentration, broader knowledge and encourages their imagination and creativity. We are convinced that we are laying an important foundation for the successful educational course of our children all the way until they graduate from school,” says language promotion coordinator David Manthey.
The name “Schatzkiste” – the German word for treasure chest, was no coincidence. Discovering and exploring books and stories is a great enrichment, a real “treasure”. The children are taught that books are little treasures, and thus precious, enriching and exciting.
Walt Disney already believed that there are “more treasures in books than pirate booty on a treasure island” and now the kids of the DHPS kindergarten and pre-school can look forward to fascinating adventures.
