Karlsruhe: Daycare centres for children

Support for children with disabilities of kindergarten age

Further information


Support for children and teenagers with disabilities and special education needs.


Every child who has reached three years of age has a legal right to a kinder­gar­ten place. This legal right also applies to children with disabi­li­ties and should be imple­men­ted in the kinder­gar­ten which offers the best support for the child with disabi­li­ties.

Whether an inclusive kinder­gar­ten or a Schul­kin­der­gar­ten (preschool for children with disabi­li­ties) is best suited to the needs of the child and the family must be clarified between the parents and the respective facility in the course of intensive consul­ta­tion.

In Karlsruhe, parents receive advice and support in their decision-making process at the Frühför­der­stelle (early support centre) of the Rehabi­li­ta­ti­ons­zen­trum Südwest (reha­bi­li­ta­tion centre Südwest), at the consulting office of the Lebens­hilfe Karlsruhe and at the special education consulting centres affiliated with special schools.

Care services for children and teenagers with disabi­li­ties

Children who need special support at a daycare centre due to their physical, mental or emotional develop­ment can obtain pedago­gi­cal and/or accom­pa­ny­ing support. Support is also possible when children and teenagers with signi­fi­cant physical or mental disabi­li­ties need support in order to attend an ordinary school. For more infor­ma­tion contact the Infor­ma­tion and Consul­ta­tion Office. Phone: +49 (0)721 133-5770
