How is it closed? In inquiring about the need for care and comparing these registrations, it was found that some parents have registered their children in several welfare facilities in the integrated community in Kirchdorf. After adjusting for this duplication, it became clear that “we could not make an offer for about ten to twelve children,” says Sandra Messner, deputy head of the citizens’ service department in Kirchdorf municipality. However, in order for the legally required places to be offered from the new kindergarten year onwards, one group was planned Container To be set up in an existing facility. An emergency solution for which funds were made available immediately.

Requirements will be clarified with registrations

It is not yet clear to what extent the new day care will be offered. Birgit Greve of the Church District Office explains that two full-time teachers should be assigned to provide care between the hours of 1 p.m. and 5 p.m., if possible five days a week. The Requirements This should be clarified with the registration. Greve only sees an opportunity to get skilled workers if the after-school care center is open five days a week – you don’t get an application for only two days, after this short period of work. The future team should definitely coordinate with the elementary school in Kirchdorf, because the daycare offer is aimed exclusively at elementary school students.
