WABE e.V. runs 23 day care centres with space for about 2,900 children in the German states of Hamburg, Schleswig-Holstein and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. We view our day care centres as educational spaces for children ranging in age from a few months up to school age. In all WABE day care centres, we work according to the open concept educational approach. We view children as independent beings, with whom we can explore the world. Three basic needs determine our educational activities and programmes in this sense: appreciation, co-determination and inclusion.
As an example, we would like to introduce our Day Care Centre WABE-Kita Parkstadt here.Learn more
