Arrival and playtime – 11.30 a.m.–12.40 p.m. | The children arrive. From the classes and kindergartens of the Rudolf Steiner School Basel. From the public kindergartens and the Bruderholz school. The time until lunch is served is for arrival and play.
Supervised lunch – 12:20 p.m. – 1:15 p.m. | The children eat on the premises of the Jakobshüttli. The meals are varied, organic and vegetarian. The food is freshly prepared every day by a qualified cook in our school kitchen. The lunch table is the place at which to meet each other and socialize. Cheerful exuberance alternates with pleasant calm. The children learn to pay attention to both their own needs and those of others. After lunch they all go to brush their teeth.
Playtime, storytime, supervised homework – 1:15 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. | This is the most peaceful time in the Jakobshüttli. With story time for the younger children, supervised homework for the older pupils and peaceful games for the rest.
1 x fresh air for everyone – 2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.| We go outside no matter what the weather; Into the woods, to the playground, in the nearby caverns and gullies or just to the school playground. The children climb, whittle or sit around a fire. They play catch, hide and seek, cops and robbers and football. And they experience the unfolding of nature’s seasons with all their senses.
Chores and playtime, including teatime – 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. | At teatime there are sandwiches and fruit to keep the children’s hunger at bay. When they have finished eating the children are busy clearing the tables, vacuum cleaning, cleaning the washbasins or filling and emptying the dishwashers. Everyone is given a chore and they help each other out. The last hour is set aside for play again. We have table football, board games and plenty more. Then the children set off for home.
