Knowledge of traditions and identity with the place of birth helps to ground self-esteem, self-confidence, a sense of security, but also curiosity and openness to the world. Regional education rarely appears in the educational programmes of kindergartens and schools. Children lack awareness of local traditions, they do not know legends, stories, melodies and songs from the area they live in. Teachers emphasise that they lack opportunities to gain competence in cultural heritage. The aim of Little Kolberg was to educate the youngest children to be attentive to their roots, traditions and the legacy of their grandparents.
