Since 1 January 2016, we have been participating in the federal programme ""Sprach-Kitas: Weil Sprache der Schlüssel zur Welt ist"" (Language Kitas: Because Language is the Key to the World) of the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth. An additional specialist with expertise in the field of language education supports the pedagogical staff in the day care centre in the further development of language education integrated into everyday life. The federal programme runs until 31 December 2022. Language skills open up equal educational opportunities for all children from the very beginning. Scientific studies show that language education is particularly effective when it begins early. Other focal points of the federal programme are inclusive education and cooperation with families.
