More than 4,300 employees work together to achieve the best education, upbringing and care of approximately 18,200 children.

The quality, flexibility and innovative organisation of FRÖBEL facilities make FRÖBEL a competent partner for parents and families, local authorities and businesses. FRÖBEL’s international holdings are held by FRÖBEL International GmbH. They include kindergartens in Australia. 

For more than 25 years the federation itself has been operating a family advice centre in the Adlershof district of Berlin as part of a family centre with the FRÖBEL kindergarten Campus Adlershof. FRÖBEL e.V. also takes responsibility for interdisciplinary tasks in the fields of child protection, crisis management and the culture of volunteering. In special cases the federation takes on construction projects for day-care facilities and leases the premises to its subsidiary.
