Childcare in the state of Bremen


If your child is at least one year old, your child has a legal right to early childhood education and care. Younger children may also be entitled if parents cannot look after their child themselves, for example if they are both working.

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.
