2. Is there a central registration and allocation office in Pots-
    dam?

    No. The registration for and the allocation of a place are made at
    the location of the child day care centre directly on principle. The
    registration for care in the child day care is made via the supporting
    organisation with which the person providing the day care service
    is cooperating, or directly with the person providing the day care
    service. The State Capital Potsdam is not a supporting body of fa-
    cilities.

    3. How do I find the suitable offer of care for my child?

Montessori Education: Here the main educational goal is auto­
     nomy (“help me to do it myself”): self-instructed learning, direct
     orientation towards the child and consistent consideration of the
     child’s needs, after Maria Montessori (1870-1952). Educators adapt
     open methods to the individual learning needs of children. Rather
     than being instructed or guided, children are supported in their natu-
     ral childlike impulse to be inquisitive and to develop their natural
     abilities. Adequate educational materials to best encourage the child
     can be chosen by observing every child (“How far is he or she in his
     or her development? Which needs does he or she have? What kind
     of help does the child need?”).

     Reggio Emilia Approach: The child as an inquisitive being – “the
     child is made of one hundred”: 100 child languages can be voiced
     through words, pictures or role-play. The child is seen as an inquisi-
     tive being that wants and needs to be supported in his or her thurst
     for knowledge, the urge to experiment, discover, and shape the
     world. The child can voice his or her feelings in words, pictures, or
     in role-play.                                                            © dglimages/stock.adobe.com

Waldorf/Steiner Education: This educational approach was de-
fined by Rudolf Steiner and is based on the concept of anthro-
posophy which was also developed by Steiner. Free play reveals
the child’s individuality and personality. Another element is a regular
rhythm of activities to give children security. To this aim, the day
is structured in different phases like free play, fairytale readings, or
artistic work. The four seasons and festivities structure the year and
are a basis for creative activities. Toys are mostly made of natural
materials such as wool, felt, and wood and are meant to encourage
creativity in children.

children in the planning process of projects strengthens autonomy
     and self-confidence: they learn to express their opinionbut to show
     consideration for others too.

     Situation-oriented Approach: Children make their experiences on
     an emotional and on a congnitive level of action. This approach ac-
     cording to Armin Krenz (*1952) is characterised by the attitude and
     the esteem for humanity that is the basis of a wholistic pedagogy.
     It is not a pedagogical technique or didactical method. The pillars
     of work: the children are given a great deal of appreciation, current
     situations are considered and picked up on, every day is meaningful
     for the child’s development, and Educators teach and learn at the
     same time. One focus of care is linking situations inside and outside
     the kindergarten, avoiding artificially produced, idealistic situations.

5. What does it mean to have legal claim to child day care?

Child day care ensures the compatibility of family and job, and it
serves for the well-being and for the development of the children.
All children from and inclusive of the age of 1 until being moved up
into class 5, have a legal claim to upbringing, education, care, and
being fed in child day care centres or to other offers relating to child
day care. Children from and inclusive of the age of 1, and children of
forms 5 and 6 have a legal claim to such, if the family situation, for
instance being employed, being away from home because of look-
ing for a job, because the parents attend training or further training
courses, or if a special need for upbringing require this.                                                                    © Kersten Schröder/PIXELIO

their child is going on now. Doing so, it is in the foreground to find
out what the child needs in order to feel well in the new situation.
If you have a good feeling about how someone is looking after your
child, this is an important requirement for being able “to release”.
The acclimatisation offers time to get into an interchange about the
habits of the child, but also about the rules of living together in the
daily routine in the Kita or with the person providing the day care
service.
The acclimatisation is orientated towards the “Berlin Model” of In-
fans (www.infans.net). As a rule, that stage covers 10 workdays, i.e.
2 consecutive weeks. The different stages of acclimatisation shall be
discussed. The stages may vary in time depending on the age and
on the stage of development of the child.
A discussion between the parents and the psychological parent
(educator) takes place at the beginning of the acclimatisation. Any
liking, habits and individual peculiarities of the child are taken down
(for instance sleeping and eating habits, possible allergies etc.).
Please take time for the joint arrival and discuss the individual pro-
cedure in the facility.                                                        © RioPatuca Images/stock.adobe.com

     Legal guardians are required to pay a fee for the running costs of
