Applying for funding in day care centres and child day care


The children's day care includes the care and support of your child in a children's day care center (crèche, kindergarten, after-school care) or a child day care center.

The facilities of the children's day care have the following tasks:

  • They promote the development of the child into a self-determined, self-responsible and community-oriented personality.
  • They support and complement the upbringing and education in the family.
  • They help parents to better reconcile employment, child-rearing and family care.

The promotion mandate includes upbringing, education and care of the child. It refers to the social, emotional, physical and mental development of the child. It includes the teaching of orienting values and rules.

The support should be based on the following characteristics of the children:

  • Age
  • Stage of development
  • language and other skills
  • Situation
  • Interests and needs
  • ethnic origin

The placement of a childcare place in a child day care facility takes place in cooperation with the responsible local public youth welfare agency.

A child who is 1 year or older is entitled to early childhood education in a day care centre or in a child day care centre until his or her 3rd birthday.

If both parents are unable to care for their child themselves, children under the age of 1 may already be entitled to early childhood education. This is the case, for example, if both parents are working.

From the 3rd birthday until starting school, the child is entitled to support in a day care centre.

The amount of your costs depends on your income and the scope of care.

Please contact your local youth welfare office.

Parents should inform themselves in good time at the competent authority whether there are free childcare places.

The personal contact or the personal acquaintance between you and the child day care center is useful and usually also possible. Many childminders offer to get to know their child day care center before registering.

After registration, the available places will be allocated according to the locally prescribed rules.
