Guidelines for acceptance by a municipal childcare facility nach oben

For your child to be accepted by a municipal childcare facility, you must first meet a number of stipulations as specified by Bad Homburg’s city council.

For information on the admission criteria of private childcare institutions, simply contact the institutions directly.

Nurseries (“Kinderkrippe”) nach oben

Children’s daycare nach oben

Bad Homburg’s range of daycare facilities is supplemented by childminding services in accordance with § 29 of the Hessian State Child and Youth Welfare Code (Hessisches Kinder- und Jugendhilfegesetzbuch (HKJGB)).

Childminding services provide education and care for children during daytime, provided as such by accredited childminders at their own domicile, the child’s parents’ domicile, or other suitable domiciles.

When employing a childminder, many aspects of the childcare to be provided may be individually agreed upon. Childminding is available for children of all age groups.

Daycare institutions and childminders have their own educational mandate. They support a child’s education alongside the family and promote the healthy development of the child by way of individual as well as general educational measures. Their tasks are to promote the intellectual, emotional and physical development of a child, to help improve its social skills and to provide all children with the same development opportunities. To successfully accomplish these tasks and ensure a continuous educational process, teachers and educators co-operate with parents as well as the childcare institutions and childminders involved in coordinating the child’s education and care.
