Forms of child day care in Dresden
There are different forms of child day care in Dresden. These include the day nursery, the child day care centre, the kindergarten and the after-school care centre.
Children under 3 years are taken care of in the day nursery. Your child meets many other children in the day nursery. There are several child educators for your children in the day nursery. The child educators take care of your child.
The day care centre can be compared to a nursery. However, there is a maximum of five children in a group in a day care centre. This means that it is similar to a family. The people who look after your children are called childminders.
Children can start to go to the kindergarten when they are 3 years old and can stay there until they start going to school. There are also many children of the same age in the kindergarten. Child educators work in the kindergarten and take care of your children.
Children who already go to school can attend with other children the after-school care centre before or after their classes. The after-school care centre is another form of childcare from the first to the fourth grade. The after-school care centre is usually located in the school or nearby.
