Day Care Centres
There are approximately 260 day care centres in Leipzig - both public and private. Parents may choose any one of these centres for their child. Information regarding available spots, particular requirements, and the educational and child-rearing concepts of each provider can be obtained from the individual day care centres themselves.
An online search engine for available day care spots, as well as the opportunity to reserve a place for your child, can be found at: www.meinkitaplatz-leipzig.de.
Information regarding the placement of your child in the selected day care centre will come from the centre itself. All other important information will also be provided by the centre.
