Child Care

Good child care is essential for parents to be able to concentrate fully on their jobs. If you are expecting a child, it is advisable to start thinking about child care early. There are different kinds of child care for different needs, and many options for families.

The legal framework for child care in Germany is provided by the Kinderbildungsgesetz (KiBiz – Child Education Act), among others. The expansion of day care for children and access rights to day care are only two of the perennially current issues. The law distinguishes between the care for children under the age of three, those three years or older, and schoolchildren.
