Children from 0 to 3 years: in good hands at crèche
Trained carers look after children up to 3 years old in crèches (Krippe).
The specialist staff at Hessen’s crèches let children play with others in their age group and run playful educational activities tailored to their age. The children also get suitable food, and breaks to rest and sleep.
Opening times and costs vary
Children are curious and inquisitive from birth, and so educational processes can be anchored from an early age. Crèches are run by public, private and clerical institutions. Opening times and fees can vary a lot and often even depend on parents’ income. The number of free places is also very different depending on the specific crèche within Hessen.
