At daycare centres in the forest or on the farm, children grow up with nature and animals as a matter of course
Varied daycare facilities with different educational concepts
Large selection of varied daycare centres
Anyone looking for a daycare place in the big city may quickly despair: eternally long waiting lists, large groups of children and high fees. Much of this is easier for you in the Altmark.
The Altmark region has an extensive network of daycare facilities with over 200 daycare centres. The choice is varied with different private educational concepts. Whether it's a church or inclusive daycare centre (for example here in Gardelegen) or forest kindergarten: you will find good childcare facilities in the smaller towns as well in the Altmark. In the countryside, parents usually choose the nearest daycare centre. Thanks to short distances, children can often be taken to the facility on the way to work.
The child care ratio is good in the Altmark. The daycare centres are informal and many facilities offer additional services, such as childcare hours for your children if you are working the late shift. Time in the fresh air and excursions into nature go without saying. Some daycare centres are even located right in the countryside or on a farm, so the little ones can grow up close to nature and help feed the chickens or rabbits.
Overviews of all daycare centres in the region can be found on the pages for the two Altmark districts.
