In the spacious, purpose-built August Hermann Francke kindergarten as many as 135 children aged 8 weeks to 6 years are taken care of by 16 carers, four technical staff members and a head. The children are divided into three age ranges over two groups, which meet up during the day. The flexible and open rooms of the building provide ample opportunities for such encounters. Each carer is responsible for a particular group from the start of kindergarten until the start of school.
