Questions about Day-care centers between ages 1-3 (Kinderkrippen)

1 post in this topic



I have some questions about the creches in Hamburg. I'd appreciate if you could share your experiences.


  1. It is a well-known fact that, it is very difficult to get a place at a nursey, and one should apply very early, but i see that, the nurseries do not accept any application before the birth, for a date 1.5 years later. The idea is to reserve a place for a starting date, when the child turns 1 year old. An application after the birth could be too late, because a year ahead of the starting date seems to be late according to the experiences of the people around us. So, what to do in this situation?
  2. The day care voucher is granted for the first 5 hours of childcare, and the cost of anything more (6, 8 or 10 hours) should be undertaken by the parents. Is it true that, the nurseries are reluctant to accept people, who only demand a 5 hr/day childcare, and prioritize people who are willing to pay for additional hours?


Thanks a lot for the insights.
