Getting the work-life balance right is increasingly important

“Women must be able to go to work but their child needs to be nearby. Parents want child-care with long opening times, an attractive profile and highly-qualified carers.”

Catherine von Fürstenberg-Dussmann, Chairperson of the Board of Trustees, Dussmann Group

Dussmann KulturKindergarten facilities are characterized by extended opening hours, bilingual care, emphasis on the arts and a concept based on the contextual approach. Core opening times are arranged with the contract partner in accordance with needs, if necessary, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We cooperate with numerous local cultural organizations when organizing activities for the children. A large proportion of our educators are native speakers of English and children learn English in play. Our pedagogical work focuses on the situations when children interact with each other and we concentrate on answering the needs of each individual.
