Home / Childcare / in the city of Giessen / Childminders


Children of all ages

In addition to supervision in daycare facilities, care for children is also provided by childminders. This is a family-oriented, individual type of daycare with relatively flexible times. Childminders are especially suitable for infants under one. The familiar setting, however, is also ideal for older children requiring additional care to supplement daycare centres or schools. A group of up to five children may be supervised by one childminder.

The association Eltern helfen Eltern e.V. (Parents helping Parents) and the Youth Welfare Office in Giessen work together to organise childminding services.

The association Eltern helfen Eltern e.V. offers:

  • comprehensive advice and information for parents and childminder families
  • help in finding and organising a childminder
  • help in selecting and preparing childminders

In cooperation with the Evangelische Familienbildungsstätte (Protestant Family Education Centre) and Eltern helfen Eltern e.V., the Youth Welfare Office of Giessen helps:

  • prepare and train childminders and childminder families
  • officially recognise childminders (male and female childminders, nannies)
  • improve the quality of childminders by offering training courses for childminders and parents
