Kindergarten Registration Process

Thank you for your interest in our PLATANUS kindergarten.

Currently, all kindergarten groups are full and we cannot offer any places. From 1 September 2022 you can register your child for the kindergarten year 2023/24. We will then start again with 2 new groups in the nursery area for children born in 2022 and with a new pre-school group. The kindergarten year 2023/24 starts on 01.08.2023. We do not offer care before then.

If you have decided to register your child at our kindergarten, please fill out our Online-Registration form.

Bilingual Kindergarten
We emphasise well-balanced kindergarten groups with diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds. We presuppose that all parents aim for well-raised and educated children. In order to achieve this, we ask you to actively collaborate with us in reaching this goal together.

Bilingual Preschool
Our bilingual preschool program (German/English) accepts children that speak either language at a native level. Knowledge of the other language is desired but not required.
