Register for a kindergarten place (three to six years) in a municipal facility

Registration for admission to a day care center

If you want to send your son or daughter to a kindergarten, the facility should not be too far from your home or workplace. In larger cities, you can select kindergartens of all providers from a list that you can obtain free of charge from the city or municipal administration.

Contact the management of the desired facility. Ask about the number of places available and the focus of the program.

Registration generally takes place with the institution's sponsor, for municipal kindergartens, for example, with the municipality; for institutions run by independent sponsors, registration takes place via the institution with the management of the respective sponsoring association.

Note: If your daughter or son was a "daycare child" in the same facility until his or her third birthday, the childcare contract will continue to run after the change to the kindergarten group, even without an application.

Service details



Pick a kindergarten that suits you.

  • Ask locally if the facility is a good fit for your child.
  • In larger cities, you can register your children for several kindergartens. The local authority will determine which of the listed facilities still has a place available. In each facility, priority is given to children whose older siblings are already being cared for there.
  • Have your offspring examined by a pediatrician before starting care and ask for a medical certificate.
  • The management of the childcare facility requires the health certificate and proof of vaccination from you.
  • Before admission to a facility, the provider concludes a care contract with the parents. This contains legal agreements and regulates in particular the daily duration of care.

Required documents

  • medical certificate
  • Proof of vaccination


  • Regardless of the provider: Registration usually six months before the desired start of care.
  • Short-term registration is possible if a place is available.


  • The parental contribution amounts to a maximum of 30% of the personnel and material costs (§ 15 Parental Contributions SächsKitaG).
  • The exact amount is determined by the municipality or city council in a statute.
