The catering offer consists of a vitamin break, snacks, drinks and lunch.

The food should be fun and enjoyable for our daycare children, as well as fresh, healthy and delicious. Eating is pleasure. Eating is pleasure. Food should strengthen well-being and appeal to all the senses. Because the eating habits of the first years of life have a significant influence on nutritional behavior in adulthood!

Catering concept of the day-care center “Anne Frank”

The personal contribution to lunch (50 € per month and child) is charged as a lump sum. This amount is billed for ten months of the year. This means that you have to pay €41.67 per month. Absences are no longer billed separately.

The place can be canceled with a notice period of 4 weeks to the end of the month. A termination of the contract due to school entry does not require a separate notice.

A special right of termination of 2 weeks applies for the first month of the contract.

The daycare committee is made up of representatives appointed by the provider and elected by the employees or parents. It meets regularly to discuss upcoming issues.

For better and faster communication with the parents of the children admitted to us, the nursery has an info app, which is provided free of charge.

The aim of the app is a simple and quick information transfer to the parents. There is a news and calendar function, which informs about current events, celebrations, parents’ evenings, etc. in our daycare center.

Flyers or other documents are also forwarded to parents as PDF files via the app.

An absence module allows you to sign out your children with just one click. Thus, we are spared the telephone service in the morning.

In addition, the app can be set to different languages. The app translates messages sent for parents directly into their heart language.

And of course the app is data protection compliant according to DGSVO. Data transmission between the individual components takes place according to the latest encryption standards.
