Nursery School Schöntal in a nature protection area
Children of age 3 to 10 visit the place on three afternoons of the week. They learn about the diversity of old meadows with fruit trees and wine stocks that were built in terraces. Playing and learning in and with nature are combined.
The stone walls of the terraces are home to a variety of plants and animals. This is an initiative of a evangelical nursery school that uses a former fruit plantation that belongs to the parish. The work was guided by nature protection authorities and scientists.
