The City of Bad Homburg offers parents an online search function for finding childcare places with nurseries, kindergartens, after-school childcare centres, supervised primary schools and childminders. The function helps you to find free childcare places, pre-register children with the respective childcare institutions and prepare childcare contracts.
Online searches using the LITTLE BIRD platformnach oben
Please inform yourself of the different educational focal points, childcare models and available offers before you submit a request for a childcare place for your child. Also, please note that some of the childcare institutions require very precise information regarding the extent of the childcare that you are looking for. Obtaining this information ensures that the institutions in question are able to customise their offer in order to meet your individual demands. You may be asked to provide various certificates, verifications or similar documents. We thank you for your co-operation in advance.
Once you have registered with the LITTLE BIRD online portal, you’ll have the chance to preregister your child with one or more childcare institutions. Please note that placement reservations are not binding until you have had a personal meeting with the respective childcare institutions.
LITTLE BIRD is unable to create more childcare places than currently available. However, we hope that we’ll be able to support you in your search and that your registration with LITTLE BIRD will result in the arrangement of a suitable childcare place for your child.
Our data protection regulations meet the highest demands of privacy and security. The data provided by you is automatically encrypted. Moreover, data provided is forwarded to the childcare institution(s) selected by you and no one else.
It is necessary to reregister your child as it reaches each new age group and childcare stage (i.e., playschool after nursery; daycare or supervised primary school after playschool etc.). Children are not automatically moved up to the next level of childcare, even if the institution looking after your child offers follow-up childcare services for the appropriate age/level.
Parents who prefer not to use our online module for registering their child may contact the respective childcare institution or municipal department directly. Persons with questions concerning childcare in Bad Homburg or those who need help with the LITTLE BIRD online registration and preregistration procedures are urged to send us an e-mail:
