Service Description

Child day care includes the care and support of your child in a child day care facility (crèche, kindergarten, after-school care) or a child day care center.

The day care facilities for children have the following tasks:

  • They promote the development of the child into a self-determined, self-reliant and socially capable personality.
  • They support and supplement the upbringing and education in the family.
  • They help parents to better reconcile gainful employment, child rearing and family care.

The support mandate includes upbringing, education and care of the child. It refers to the social, emotional, physical and mental development of the child. It includes the teaching of orienting values and rules.

The support should be based on the following characteristics of the children:

  • Age
  • stage of development
  • linguistic and other abilities
  • life situation
  • interests and needs
  • ethnic origin

The placement of a child in a day care center takes place in cooperation with the responsible local youth welfare organization.


Process flow

Parents should contact the responsible office in good time to find out whether there are any childcare places available.

Personal contact or getting to know each other personally between you and the child daycare center makes sense and is usually possible. Many child minders offer to get to know their child day care center before registering.

After registration, the available places are allocated according to the locally specified rules.

Who should I contact?

The local public youth welfare agency (Youth Welfare Office) is responsible. In addition, the KiTa-Portal Schleswig-Holstein can support your search for a suitable childcare place.

Requirements

A child who is 1 year old or older is entitled to early childhood education in a daycare facility or in a daycare center until his or her 3rd birthday.

If both parents are unable to care for their child themselves, children under 1 year of age may already be entitled to early childhood support. This is the case, for example, if both parents work.

From the child's 3rd birthday until he or she starts school, the child is entitled to support in a daycare facility.

Which documents are required?

An application is required for the granting of an ongoing cash benefit for child day care. This can be done in writing or online (LINK). The application must be accompanied by at least the birth certificate of the child to be cared for and the written confirmation of the child day care worker.

Registration via the KitaPortal Schleswig-Holstein

You can also pre-register your child online with a large number of childcare providers, using the following link: https://www.kitaportal-sh.de/de/

What are the fees?

The amount of your costs will depend on your income and the amount of care you provide.

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

Applications should always be received by the responsible youth welfare office before the start of childcare or change. The respective deadlines of the responsible youth welfare office must be observed (usually to be found in the applicable statutes).
