What kind of day care facilities are there?

Getting your child into Kindergarten

Getting your child into "Kindergarten" (day care) in Germany can be both difficult and expensive. There are too many kids, and not enough facilities. You might want to start looking for a good kindergarden as soon as your child is 2 years old. "Kindergarten" generally starts at age 3. Check with your local churches and your employer. Consider 'renting' a day mom. Read ads in your local paper. Start early.
