Kindergarten & Nurseries in the Area of Stuttgart

- a short overview -

Here is a short overview about how the system works in the area of Stuttgart.

In Germany the nursery is from 1-3 years and Kindergarten from 3-6 years.

  • Public Kindergartens/Nurseries are usually not obliged to take children which are not insured by the German healthcare system, but of course you can apply.
  • Private Kindergartens/Nurseries, supported by the German government. They are non-public and you can apply as they might be more open for non-German insured children.
  • Private non supported Kindergartens – you can apply and they are open for all children & chances are better, but prices are higher.
  • Eltern-Kind-Initiative – Kindergarten run by parents – voluntary work from your side is a must and expected.
  • Tagesmutter – day care of a qualified person usually in their own home.
