Crèches, kindergartens, and after-school clubs
The FRÖBEL Group operates crèches, kindergartens, after-school clubs and family support centres through several not-for-profit companies in the federal German states of Berlin, Brandenburg, Saxony, Lower Saxony, Hamburg, Schleswig-Holstein, North Rhine-Westphalia and Bavaria as well as in the Australian cities of Sydney, Alexandria and Melbourne, and in the Polish town Poznan.
In addition to its core focus on the holistic education, guidance and care of children, the FRÖBEL Group is committed to improving the reconciliation of family and work life based on a uniform education profile. The high degree of flexibility and innovative orientation of FRÖBEL centres make FRÖBEL a competent partner for parents and families, communities and companies. FRÖBEL designs tailored care concepts for businesses and families in close cooperation with the companies concerned (employer-sponsored childcare). For more information on the educational work of our crèches, kindergartens and after-school clubs go to Education or to the individual centre homepages.
Since its foundation on 22 May 1990, as well as promoting the education and guidance of children the federation has been engaged across the regions in supporting the objectives of the leading organisations of the German non-statutory welfare services. The first kindergartens were taken on in 1993 in the Lausitz, joined in 1995 by the first kindergartens in Berlin, and in 1999 by kindergartens in Potsdam. The regions of Leipzig and Frankfurt/Oder were also established towards the end of the 1990s, and in 2008 centres in the Cologne region previously operated by the Catholic Church joined the FRÖBEL Group. Since 2009 FRÖBEL has had a presence in Sydney, Australia, and since 2010 operates centres in Essen and Hamburg. Finally, in 2013 FRÖBEL took on its first kindergarten in Brunswick and started operating several centres in Munich, thus establishing a presence in Lower Saxony and Bavaria, respectively.
Currently, around 14,500 children are being cared for by about 3,300 FRÖBEL employees in some 165 facilities.
All these FRÖBEL Group companies are owned by FRÖBEL e.V., a federation of ambitious education professionals and socio-politically active figures.
