Registration of a child in the nursery, kindergarten or day care / Child ID
Do you want to register your child in a nursery/kindergarten or with a day care centre (childminder/day care provider)? Use the new KITAPORTAL.BREMEN.DE to do so.
In order to be able to register your child for a childcare place, you will need a child ID for your child. You will automatically receive this by mail in November before your child's 1st birthday.
With this ID, you can register your child for up to three desired facilities in the KITAPORTAL.BREMEN.DE de.
If you do not have the ID number, you can apply for it at the parent service of the Senator for Children and Education (see contact person).
If your child is already registered, he or she can generally keep the place in his or her Kita in the following kindergarten years. However, if you need extended care time, you must register this each year and prove your need annually.
You can find more information on the website of the Senator for Children and Education at https://www.bildung.bremen.de/kinder-116696 and in the Kitaportal in the help section at https://kitaportal.bremen.de .
In order to receive a child ID, the child must have its first residence in Bremen and must not be older than 1 year and 11 months at the start of the kindergarten year (on 01 August each year).
