The nursery school and the pre-school class are located on the ground floor. This way the distances that the smallest ones have to cover are reduced to a minimum. Next to the first class’ room are the refectory and a multi-purpose room.
All along the south facing wall of the building is a canopy that protects the children from the sun. This structure also functions as a cover for the playground and marks the transition from the open play field to the protection of the classrooms.
