Your children are well looked after

Parents can go about their professional occupations with commitment and focus in the knowledge if their little ones are being well looked after. In Germany in March 2016, nearly 55,000 public and private day care facilities were available. 

The care of the youngest started early in Germany: at the age of 0 to 2 years around one-third were supervised, so their parents are able to pursue their career. In the age group of 3 to 5 years, which includes schoolchildren as well, the proportion of all children looked after was even 94 percent. 

Childhood care is also firmly anchored in integration and inclusion. About one-third, or 19,000, care facilities were kindergartens with integrative care. For children with disabilities, a total of 252 facilities were available in March 2016.
