Childcare is a useful part of the childcare offer in Leipzig. To ensure that this continues to exist with all its advantages, we would like to support future and existing childminders in their training and further education through our portal and in cooperation with our partners. We are also supporting you with the supply of new children for your childcare.
The day care for children offers an individual and integrated care for maximum 5 children in a group. All childcare assistants are professionally qualified in accordance with article 43 of the Social Securiy Code, book Eight - Child and Youth Work Development Act (SGB VIII) and are approved by the Municipal Child and Youth Work Association (VKKJ). In addition, all childminders are personally fit according to § 72 a SGB VIII and can present certificates such as the extended certificate of good conduct, the first-aid course for children, the health passport and a certificate of their mental and physical health. The costs for a day care are the same as for a kindergarten and it is possible to use the WIESENKNOPF substitution establishments if the childminder is not available. We are convinced of this form of childcare!
We regularly offer the qualification as a childminder based on the requirements of the Deutsches Jugendinstitut (DJI)
We convey requests of Leipzig families about free caring capacities to free caring capacities offered by childminders in Leipzig.
For all childcarers in Leipzig we give you the opportunity to qualify and educate with and via our cooperation partners.
Since 2015, WIESENKNOPF® has been supporting public youth welfare offices with substitutes in the sector of childcare, first as a pilot scheme and now as a central partner of the City of Leipzig. Short- or long-term loss of regular childcare opportunities due to illness or, for example, the nanny's holidays, as well as closings or transition days at the day-care centre, are particularly difficult times for parents. Our company, in cooperation with Leipzig's public youth welfare offices, individual day-care centres, various kindergartens or as a private day-care service, can take care of children during these periods, guarantee solid care and thus avoid stressful situations for the parents and their concerned children. Our central based establishments are located in the centre of Leipzig and are easily accessible for all parents, even by public transport. Parents can use this service for free if the responsible of the day-care centres and kindergartens or the day-care centres and kindergartens themselves have a cooperation agreement with us. Substitute day-care providers are certified childminders who have been approved by the youth welfare office in accordance with SGB VIII § 43. All substitute childminders have completed a first-aid course especially for children, have a valid certificate of good conduct, a health passport and a certificate of mental and physical health.
