THE RANGE OF OUR DAY-CARE CENTRES
185 day-care centres belong to the Elbkinder – you can find us everywhere in Hamburg and most certainly also in your neighbourhood. In many parts of the city, there are even several of our day-care facilities. This is an advantage for you, because all Elbkinder day-care centres have common quality standards, the ‘5 Promises of Quality’, but various different offers and pedagogical concepts. Furthermore, all our day-care centres have long and year-round opening hours from 6 am to 6 pm, their own kitchens and large outside areas. The choice is yours – use our day-care centre finder for assistance.
For children and parents without a Kita-Gutschein (day-care centre voucher), the Elbkinder have a special free offer at the parent-child centres. Our early support centres provide help for children under the age of three who need special support due to a developmental disorder or disability.
In Hamburg, families have extensive legal rights to day-care. All children of working parents receive a Kita-Gutschein (day-care centre voucher). Independent of professional activity, there is the legal right to a 5-hour care, including lunch for all children aged 2 years and older. One year prior to school enrollment, children receive 5 hours of free care.
