We are moving…
For us, the Straßenkindergarten, this means we will be moving approximately middle of 2023 to Lüztner Straße in Lindenau. In the new building we will expand our size to 81 children, including up to 9 children with integration status.
At the new place we can eventually implement several of our visions: we will have our own kitchen to cook our own meals and there will also be a „garden for little exploreres“ to grow vegetables and herbs together with the children. So our future Straßenkindergarten children can discover from seed to table how our food is growing.
Monday to Friday 7 am to 5 pm
During summer school holidays (1 Aug till 12 Aug 2022) 8 am to 4 pm
Closing days in 2022:
- 18 + 25. Mar 2022
- 27 May 2022
- 17/18 Nov 2022
The Straßenkindergarten is a parents’ initiative with an own supporting association, founded already in 1993. It’s a place for adults and children to meet, feel comfortable and inspire each other in the sense of a holistic development. This happens within the framework of family-supporting work as well as a partnership-based collaboration of all members.
The involvement of parents and the co-determination of children are the supporting pillars of our concept. The educators see themselves as companions and facilitators as well as instigators for the children and therefore create an atmosphere which is allowing space for individuality.
In Straßenkindergarten, children and their families are welcome, regardless of their origin, religion, gender, social status and special physical, mental and spiritual conditions. We stand for inclusion and oppose exclusion.
