Registration for Day Care Centers
In order to enroll your child in a Kita you need to follow the central registration procedure by the city of Freiburg (this applies also to the Kitas of the university).
On the following website you will be guided through the registration procedure (German only).
Here, you can also access the registration form (German only) on which you can specify up to three Kitas. The websites of the city of Freiburg as well as the form for the central registration are in German only. If this is inconvenient for you, we offer you the registration form in English.
If you fill out the registration form on the internet (i.e. the German version), the form will be submitted automatically to the Kitas you have chosen. The directors of these Kitas will then contact you and inform you whether there is a free place for your child.
If you fill out the registration form in the pdf-format (i.e. the English version), please send it via mail to the address given on the form.
Most of the free places are allocated at the beginning of a new kindergarten year in September. In order to get a place at this point, you need to be registered in the central registration system of the municipality of Freiburg by the end of February of the same year.
If you need to start childcare at a time other than September, you also have to register with the central system and you should do so as soon as possible. In this case please be prepared for a longer waiting period, since there are only a few places left to be awarded after September.
Please be sure to start searching and applying for a place in a Kita as soon as possible.
