A Heart Culture

The beautiful atmosphere where everyone is included and cares for each other. Dibber believes it is important for children to experience that we wish each other well AND that we have a big heart for other people.

Playful Learning

Traditionally, play and learning have been seen as opposites. Dibber strives to change this approach.

Joy of Mastery – every day

Dibber understands and supports that the joy of reaching for goals, succeeding at new things, and mastering challenges form a beneficial, foundational structure for life. The “I can!” program gets kids involved in various challenges and with the greatest support and encouragement, they develop mastery and skill,  and gain confidence and independence.

Holistic Child Development

Life is a discovery! Dibber creates experiences, friendship, learning opportunities and memories together. These new experiences will shape children’s development and lay the foundation for life mastery and lifelong learning. Dibber calls this holistic child development.

Holistic child development focuses on developing a child´s cognitive, emotional, physical, and social abilities simultaneously.  Dibber always follows each individual child’s needs, experiences, skills, and knowledge when planning learning opportunities and activities.

Language – Great conversations

At Dibber, they actively and systematically work on conveying understanding texts, the ABCs and sound recognition to provide our children with the best start to their own reading and writing journey.

Creativity – All children are little artists!

All children shall experience the joy of being creators! They will use their imagination and creativity. When creativity unfolds, the joy of mastery is evident. Creativity strengthens the self-image and generates a sense of safety. Dibber encourages the use of imagination and creative thinking, and by this, they give the children an excellent starting point for finding their individual creative expression.

Problem-solving is an integral part of the creative process and a crucial part in children’s learning process. When children solve problems, they comprehend different perspectives and detect solutions that are within their reach. Problem-solving is one of the methods Dibber uses to inspire creativity.

“At Dibber, we encourage imagination and allow ideas to fly free.”

The joy of music

Music is a wonderful tool to create community and inclusion in a group of children. It contributes to good connections, good relations and a sense of cultural belonging. Dibber explores different music genres, musical instruments and music from different countries and cultures. They also create opportunities for children to create their own music, using both their voice and instruments, and even with the help of digital tools.

Little scientists – Great discoveries​

Children are, natural inquirers. They have an innate drive to find out about their surroundings. Wondering and exploration are the foundations for development, learning, and well-being.

With the help of the learning friend Woody Woo, kids explore the world around us, both indoors and outdoors. They learn about nature, animals, astronomy and science, by observing, experimenting and exploring our wonderings. They also take an extra close look at our local community and society. “What can we find in our community? Who are the people in our community? How do we take care of our community?”  Dibber also want to make sure children are environmental agents that care about the world. Therefore, they put great emphasis on environmental awareness regarding the waste we produce, the food we eat and the things we buy.

“When children wonder and explore, they learn to learn!”

Math – Lets count!

Dibber’s math program covers numerous areas based on core knowledge of numbers, space, and shapes. The tasks and assignments allow each child to develop essential skills needed for life. Repeated or used individually, the tasks will document the child’s way to mastery. The activities are varied, accessible, and visible – designed to establish vital competence.

The meal

Dibber’s meal concept is called “The Meal”. The Meal provides the children with a varied and nutritious diet, which opens a world of exciting flavors. They will participate in preparing, cooking, and serving the meals, and help with the cleaning afterwards. Every day, Dibber endeavors to make meals a pleasant time by embracing conversation, reflection, learning, and fellowship.
