Jobs, Jobs, Jobs

We are looking for conductors in Nürnberg

We have two posts to fill immediately or as soon as we can and possibly more positions both in the near and more distant, future.

  • 1.      There is a post for a conductor to be filled in a new Petö/Montessori integrated crèche that will be opening in January.

  • 2.      There is a post to be filled, also from January, with clients aged between 0 and 99. The work is with parents and young children, with school children and also with their families, their teachers and classroom assistants, and with adults in conductive groups and in their conductive living.

Conductive work in Nürnberg is expanding so, conductors out there who would like to be part of our new long-term projects please get in touch soon.

Contact us in German, English or Hungarian -

Below is the advertisement that is on the German conductor association website.  

This Kindergarten job has been filled but, as I wrote above, we still need at least two conductors, for the crèche and clients 0 to 99, and perhaps more for the Kindergarten later in the year!

Für unsere neue integrative Petö-Montessori Kindergarten- und Krippengruppen suchen wir zwei Konduktorinnen.

Eine Kindergartengruppe nach dem gleichen Konzept arbeitet mit großem Erfolg seit Jahren.
Eine Sozialpädagogin, eine Erzieherin und eine Konduktorin arbeiten im Team. Die integrative Kinder werden zusätzlich in dreiwöchigen intensiven Blocks zusammen mit einer weiteren Konduktorin gefördert.

Wir sind derzeit 5 Konduktorinnen in Nürnberg und arbeiten auch Gruppenübergreifend eng zusammen. Zu der in den Kindergärten und Krippen angestellten Konduktorinnen kommt zu den Blöcken eine andere Konduktorin dazu. Wir erstellen die Förderprogramme und die Förderziele zusammen, beraten in den Gruppen und haben gemeinsame Teambesprechungen mit den Kindergärten-und Krippenteam.

Wenn Dir die Arbeit bei uns gefallen würde, sende bitte eine Bewerbung-gerne per Email -uns zu!

The benefits of cycling for Parkinson's, stroke and me

Me and Sis, 1959

Thanks again to Dean on deans’ stroke musings for the following link –

Dean is still working hard to get back to cycling after suffering a stroke and posts updates on his blog –

Dean has also recently linked to this story about cycling too –

As for my own bike, I am missing it very much as I have hardly ridden it at all these last few months. I have been feeling very tired and decided that it was not worth risking an accident by being inattentive in the early morning half-light, so I have been travelling on public transport. This means I have read more but missed the nature and fresh air and of course the exercise.
Although I am feeling a bit more alert now the snow began yesterday and the roads and cycle paths offer new dangers!

Perhaps there will be some sunny days in the Christmas hols on which to get out the bike and enjoy the fresh air.

Good luck to Dean with his practise sessions, that I suspect will also come to an end when the bad weather sets in, but will be renewed with great motivation in the spring, as I hope will happen with my cycling activity too.
