Description

The hosting institution is a kindergarten, founded in 1953, since 2016 as an inclusive kindergarten from the municipality of Leipzig with a capacity of 131 children (100 kindergarten places including 6 integration places and 31 nursery places). An important point for us is the inclusion of children with handicap. The institution has individual rooms for moving, playing, sleeping and food, additional room for different offers and a wonderful garden. The pedagogic work of our kindergarten focusses on open work, there are spaces for role-play, art, handicrafts. Furthermore, there are special highlights during the year like seasonal festivities.
