Dibber Child Development
Dibber Child Development
Dibber child development is regarded unique in the market and is highly respected for being the key to why we have been, and still are, running successful operations in the Nordics as the #1 player in the market. At Dibber we believe our network of 9000 educators sharing experiences across the world is key to enriching our curriculum and service.
In this, we recognize the importance for developing the whole child, which includes self-worth, social skills, health and curiosity as a foundation for creating the best start in life for your children and enabling lifelong learning and life mastery.
Dibber will give as many children as possible the best start in life. We know from many years of operating Early Childhood Development (ECD) centers in the Nordics, and from well-known research, that children’s self worth, social skills, health and curiosity are developed during their first years.
Dibber provides ECD services with the aim of making every child feel valuable and becoming the best versions of themselves.
With a combination of warm-hearted qualified people, proven pedagogy principles, safe stimulating playful environment and modern digital systems, we develop and manage high quality ECD centers around the world while adapting and adopting to local nuances where applicable.
At Dibber we are driven by heart.
Dibber’s Heart Culture - the North star for everything we do
At Dibber we believe that children’s development, health and well-being are directly enforced by the culture we create among employees, parents and the children themselves.
That is why we are so proud of our Dibber Heart Culture which is our unique way of ensuring an inclusive and caring environment, where we live our pedagogy principles every day. The culture is characterized by safe, warm, fun and engaging employees and environments committed to your child. In this, we aim for interaction, care, and education to go hand in hand throughout the day – which we believe will make a loving and memorable childhood for our children.
The Dibber Heart Culture fuels our positive learning environment. It is one where children feel a sense of belonging and trust, where they are encouraged to explore.
The Heart Culture ensures this positive and child-centered learning environment by surrounding the children with positive role models, continual refilling and collaboration through mutual understanding.
This culture allows for children to develop through the following fundaments:
Playful learning, Interaction and Mastery.
Playful Learning, Interactions and Mastery
Dibber is convinced that in an environment of playful learning and interactions, the children develop a desire and interest for learning and gain the best prerequisite for social, cognitive and physical development. This will build a cornerstone and mindset for the children’s sense of mastery and self-worth.
These are the key fundaments of the Dibber Childhood Development principles that we live every day.
