From a spacious location in the countryside to a center in a residential area or in a central urban location.

The social pedagogical assistants (SPAs for short) in our daycare centers accompany the children in the crèche or elementary section throughout the day. They support the teachers in their daily work. As secondary staff, they are right in the middle of the lively events with the children and take on all the tasks that are part of child education and care. They help with meals, paint, do arts and crafts, sing, play with the children, guide them in projects and accompany them on excursions.

Existing specialised knowledge can be an additional asset when working with children. This is because individual additional qualifications or professional training (such as carpentry, music, art education, etc.) mean that (lateral) entrants are also experts in their respective educational specialism. They can contribute their expertise and interests in numerous educational areas such as movement, art, music, nutrition and language. As experts in their field, they infect the children with their enthusiasm and knowledge in the rooms specially designed for their respective function.

Our housekeeping and cleaning staff keep an eye on hygiene and cleanliness in the daycare centers and all-day school locations. In this way, they keep the teaching staff free to concentrate on their work with the children. They lend a helping hand and assist the educational staff and, of course, the children, for example, with the preparation of meals. At the same time, as part of the daycare center community, they are also in contact with the children and are happy to answer their questions.
