Re: Kinderkrippe vs tagesfamilie
'Tagesfamilie' the child goes to a local mum usually, it english you would call it 'family day care' and it's cheap, but the person is not required to have formal education qualifications.
The risk of a tagesfamilie is that there is no supervision, minimal licencing requirements and it's up to the carer how they want to interact with your child. On the other hand, get a good one and your child will get good individual care, it's cheap and flexible, and they can go out and do things in the community that a childcare group can't provide.
The disadvantage of group childcare 'krippe' is that it is group care, kids and adults share germs, it usually is not so individualised, the kids have to follow the general needs and routines of the whole group, and it costs more.
Advantage of group care is social interaction, reliability that the centre is always open as agreed, professional training of lead-staff, and a child-friendly environment...
