Well organized and professional childcare is important for a successful work environment. Possible forms of childcare include:

  • Crèche groups (under 3 years of age)
  • Kindergarten (3-6 years)
  • Day-care mother/father
  • Mixed-age groups
  • Child care at universities
  • Babysitters
  • Day-care grandmother/grandfather
  • Full day forms of schools


Attendance of a kindergarten is mandatory for children at the age of 5 years. Children who turn five by August 31 of a year have to attend kindergarten from September through June at least on a half-day basis. Parents of children who turn 4 by September 1 are invited by the authorities to a mandatory interview, if the child is not yet listed for kindergarten attendance.
There are exceptions for children who are cared for at home or by day-care parents.
