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 child day care centre is similar to the day nursery. There is a maximum of five children in one group in the child day care centre. That means it resembles a family. The people who take care of your children are called child minders.
Children can start to go to the kindergarten when they are 3 years old and can stay there until they start going 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.
