About us

Our daycare  opened in 2016 .We have Space for  54 children between the ages of 1 and 6 to play, tell stories, learn, move ,dream, laugh, sing, muddy, experiment and much more!
We want the children to: INVITE – ENCOURAGE – INSPIRE

Every child should have the opportunity to develop uninhibitedly, happily and self-confidently according to their own rhythm. We value an appreciative attitude towards differences and are open to families of all religions, cultures and languages.
We focus as individually as possible on the individual child with his or her needs and life situation.
Our daycare should be a place where all children and parents feel accepted and comfortable and where the children are guaranteed the best possible support, support and education.

  • individual support of the individual child and strengthening of his or her personality
  • Mediation and implementation of a participatory image of the community
  • Educational offers and free play phases that can be taken up by the child in a self-determined manner
  • Enabling participation in togetherness for every child and every family
  • Educational partnership with close cooperation in everyday life and during crucial transitions
  • Cooperation with schools and, if necessary, with counselling and support centres


Our dedicated team consists of eleven educational specialists including the facility management, a student, as well as housekeeping and cleaning staff.

In addition, we maintain a very good cooperation with early intervention centres, occupational therapy and speech therapy practices,of which they carry out their therapy in our house in cooperation with the staffs.

Quality Assurance

The implementation of pedagogical work in daycare centres depends on various influences. Legal regulations and requirements, qualifications of employees and staffing, spatial conditions, living situation and needs of the current families, requirements and guidelines of the provider of a facility, internal structures of the daycare center or special influences from outside that cannot be ignored (e.g. a pandemic or similar).

We want to keep an eye on the quality of our work as much as possible, secure it and constantly develop it. We use the "PQ-Sys KIQ" of the Paritätischer NRW – reflect on our work and adapt it to new challenges.

In order to implement the necessary measures in a meaningful way and to regularly check their effectiveness, we proceed according to the PDCA cycle.

The structures in our facility allow for continuous development:

  • Further education and training for employees
  • Team training and conception days 2x a year
  • Regular team meetings and group team meetings 1x weekly
  • Collegial advice
  • Supervision
  • Weekly preparation times for all employees
  • Annual employee appraisals with management

In our daycare, we have  a wide variety of professional employees who work together. This has the advantage of seeing the work from a wide variety of perspectives, of exchanging ideas about it and of benefiting from each other.

In addition, trade journals and current specialist literature are available, the topics of which we discuss in team meetings if necessary.



In many areas, the daycare centre is a good, optimal hub from which further necessary support and help for children and families can be organised.
Our cooperation partners are:

  • Office for Youth and Family in Bielefeld
  • State Youth Welfare Office
  • Welfare agency
  • Public health department
  • Paediatricians
  • Early Intervention Centres
  • Social Pedagogical Centre Bielefeld
  • Child psychologists
  • Primary and special schools
  • other day care facilities for children
  • Other areas of work of the GfS

We work in a community-oriented way, which includes close cooperation with all "actors" in the district:

  • Neighbourhood Conference
  • other daycare centres for children
  • Primary school and OGS Dreekerheide and meeting point Oberlohmannshof
  • Oberlohmannshof district centre
  • Parishes
  • and more

Teamwork with parents

The Educational Partnership

The education of the children should be formulated and lived as a task of partnership between the daycare center and the family. A basis of trust between the institution and the family is therefore fundamental. We want to consolidate this through transparent cooperation that is geared to the needs of the children. We are open to families of any culture, religion and language. Depending on their needs and life situation, we look at each individual family individually.

A first intensive contact takes place during the admission interview. In this we get to know the families and their individual needs. Parents are the "experts" of their children and are involved in the children's developmental processes. We work closely with the families. To this end, a regular exchange is important in order to jointly develop objectives that are implemented by as many people as possible.

We have the  possibility  to involve different institutions in order to provide good support for the respective child – e.g. occupational therapists, speech therapists, physiotherapists, motor therapists.

Furthermore, we offer a wide network of family support services. For many years, the GfS  Bielefeld e.V. has a comprehensive range of services with many experts. For Example, services for disabled people with individual care , family support service and personal school support. We also have a  comprehensive advice and training in-house. In 2021, "Familycare-Erziehungshilfen" joined forces with GfS inorder to sopport families through its broad range of offering.

Our offers for parents:

  • Admission interviews
  • Regular visiting days before the admission of children to facilitate settling-in
  • Annual development meetings – more frequently if necessary
  • Parent´s Afternoons / Evenings meetings
  • Parent-Child Actions
  • Participation in activities with the children
  • Festivals and events
  • Consulting services
  • If necessary, exchange with external experts and funding agencies
  • Observation in the daycare center 

Parents receive all important information from the house through, Flipcharts, letters or e-mails.

In the daily "smalltalks " we pass on experiences and important information of the day.

It is important to us to talk to all parents about their children's development at least once a year. Our educational documentation is the basis for this. In doing so, we try to focus on the child with his or her strengths and convey to the parents to trust in their child's abilities. In our experience, this is a good way to build up further development steps. Together, we develop individual ways to accompany and support for the child.
