Hello Nosi,

first of all: Your problem is a well-known problem for German people too, it's really hard to find a kindergarten place in major cities. Many parents apply for a place even in a kid's pre-birth time these days to improve their chances.

Do you kow the service of "Elternbüro im Kalk Karree"?
Hopefulley the can help, see details here: (German)

All the best!

thank you Jan
for this service i already registered in Dec last year for my both kids and i go for them again twice this year ..but they say i have to wait ..
Do you know the project "Grandparents sharing time with children", it's no equivalent to a kindergarten but it can help if you want your children to get in contact with German people, who really want to do something meaningful. General information: Contact:
