Application for after-school care (primary school age)

Saxon cities and municipalities must offer a needs-based range of after-school care facilities for primary-school children. If you would like your child to be looked after at one of these facilities, you can request this directly from the facility itself. Many primary schools have an on-site after-school care facility, although a series of kindergartens and day-care centres also offer this service. Request admission informally directly from the after-school care facility or day-care centre.

Service details


Good physical and mental health


  • Look for a suitable after-school care facility or child-care centre offering after-school care. In larger cities and municipalities, the town hall provides a free list.
  • Enquire at the facility itself whether it is suitable for your child.
  • Have your child examined by a paediatrician before he / she starts attending the centre, and ask for a medical certificate.
  • The child-care centre’s management requires a certificate of health and immunisations.
  • The sponsor will conclude a child-care contract with you before your child is admitted. This contract will contain legal agreements, and will govern the daily care time.
Note: If your son or daughter has already attended the facility as a kindergarten child, you do not have to provide a medical certificate.

Facilities run by independent sponsors and private operators:
Enquire about the registration formalities directly with the centre’s sponsor or operator.

Required documents

  • Medical certificate
  • Proof of immunisations


Your child must be registered at the after-school care centre before his / her first day in school. The child-care contract ends automatically once your child completes grade four (grade six for the after-school care facility at a special needs school).


Parent contribution in Saxony: at least 20, maximum 30 percent, of running costs. The municipal or city council determines the exact amount in a statute.
