In daycare, your child will be cared for by a childminder. This care usually takes place in the childminder's or child's home. A childminder looks after up to five children at a time. The care can also take place in external rooms suitable for children. In this case, two child minders look after up to ten children at a time. The work is organized jointly, similar to a daycare center.
In Bremen, day carers are placed by PiB - Pflegekinder in Bremen. PiB ensures that all childminders are trained and supervises their work. All of them have an official care permit.
