Tempelhof –

After the mass dismissal of the care in the Tempelhofer Kita “Notenzwerge” can probably accommodate all affected children in other facilities. According to District Councilor Oliver Schworck (SPD), Kitas of the district have provided 87 seats. In addition, there are still offers of free carriers. “We will probably come to the required number of seats,” said Schworck on Tuesday the German Press Agency.

This week, parents should be informed about the offers. Due to staff shortages, the Kita Notenzwerge had at one go the care of 113 children and thus about half terminated.

Kitas will be temporarily overcrowded

It still needs to be clarified, who can be accommodated in which kindergarten, so the youth council. In the day-care centers, there will be a temporary overcrowding until the end of the Kitayahr. But this can be overcome, said Schworck. He himself had not expected such a quick solution.

The affected children from the day care center “Notenzwerge” threatened to be without care from March onwards. “Independently, the search for personnel is in full swing to increase the support capacity again. Some parents have also found daycare places with other carriers, “said a spokeswoman for the carrier Rahn Education. (AP)
