Welcome to Glückskinderwelt

Glückskinderwelt continues to grow.... we are looking forward to applications from parents and teachers starting fall 2018. 


“Three things remain
with us from paradise:
stars at night,
flowers in daylight,
and the eyes of children”
Dante Alighieri (1265-1321), Italian poet

Situated in the heart of Heidelberg, very centrally located with good transport connections, the privately run day nursery “Glückskinderwelt” is on two floors covering just under 1200 m². Sponsored by the State of Baden-Württemberg and the City of Heidelberg, children aged from three months to three years are lovingly cared for by 3-4 professional educators in six age-specific crèche groups, each with ten children, as well as three kindergarten groups (3–6 years), with 20 or 10 children respectively. Using state-of-the-art educational methods, a generous, child-friendly space concept as well as a bilingual approach, we want to support children from an early stage in a modern development process.

Glückskinderwelt is characterised by an individual and personal culture, which offers a self-sufficient and familial character in individual groups, but at the same time uses possibilities that only an institution with a certain size can offer, for example stability and flexibility, additional services and professional administration and communication.

With extremely flexible opening hours, a “Parents Lounge” at the hub of the action and many other services, our aim is to reconcile family and work and, in particular, to take the strain off dual-earning households. To make all this possible, we place particular emphasis on having a harmonious and strong team that defines the culture of the facility and will continue supporting the “Glückskinder concept” with tremendous love and passion.
