Education in early childhood

Children start learning from the day they are born. It is therefore particularly important to support children early on.

The foundation for success in school and later at work is already laid in the first years of a child's life. It is during this phase of their lives that children are full of curiosity and are constantly discovering new things, learning something new every day. Education in early childhood requires the involvement of both the parents and the places in which children live and learn. Information on the most important areas of education in early childhood can be found on the following pages.

Wichtige Mitteilung


There have been several occasions very recently in which people have pretended to be employees of the Federal Office and asked for an interview at which they questioned asylum applicants intensively. This took place in some cases on the pretext that a second hearing was allegedly needed. Important: The Federal Office does not conduct home visits! These individuals do not work for the Federal Office. The Federal Office has therefore filed criminal charges. If something similar happens to you, or if you observe anything of this nature as a carer, please report this to your local police station.Interviewers from reputable survey institutes who are currently conducting interviews as part of research projects in which data are collected on a voluntary basis clearly state who they are working for. They also give the name of the survey institute and prove this by showing the appropriate documentation. This means that you can make enquiries should you have any doubts.
