Please thoroughly review your application, making sure all fields are filled out fully and all information is up to date. If you are planning on requesting financial aid, or are a holder of an HD pass, you must indicate this on the enrollment form. If you have any questions regarding application, please write by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will receive a confirmation by e-mail as soon as we have received your application. You will then be automatically placed upon our waiting list, and contacted upon availability of a space. In the case that you have been put on our waiting list but are no longer interested in a place in our International DAI Kindergartens, we ask that you please inform us so that you can be removed accordingly. Available Spaces Preschool spaces are available in all houses, whereas Nursery spaces are only available in the HD- Neuenheim houses (Kuno-Fischer and Gutenberg). Admission confirmation is given at the end of April or beginning of May each year at the latest. Available seats in our International DAI Kindergartens are allocated according to various criteria. Preference is given to siblings of currently enrolled children, and children with an international background. Date of application is also a decisive factor. For our Neuenheim kindergartens, priority is given to children who reside in Neuenheim. Our Altstadt Kindergarten accepts children from other parts of the city. Admission confirmation will come in the form of e-mail from our Admissions Administrator. Childcare Contract As soon as you have received admission confirmation for a place in the International DAI Kindergarten, our Admissions Administrator will inform you of your acceptance in writing and send you a care contract per email. Please keep in mind that application for reduced fees must have been applied for within the application process (see application form). If you are applying for a reduced fee, please provide proof of income of both parents, in the format agreed upon. At this time, the respective kindergarten director will contact you and arrange an appointment for initial meetings with them as well as your child’s future caregivers. You will also receive a list of all documents needed for this appointment, and have the opportunity to clarify all further practical questions with them.
