Request education in a day group

Your child has problems in everyday life or in his development? As a parent, do you need support in raising your child? Then educating your child in a day group can be a possible help.

Education in a day group is particularly suitable for children of school age and older who exhibit behavioral problems or developmental delays. This is a type of assistance for upbringing. It can also be suitable for young adults according to §41 SGB VIII.
A day group is a so-called partial inpatient help. During the week, your child will be looked after in a day group during the day after school. Afterwards, however, it can remain in the family and thus in the familiar environment.
Education in a day group means:

  • Your child receives therapeutic and pedagogical care
  • It receives support in integrating into the school and the social environment.
  • It learns in a group how to deal with other children and how to cope with conflicts.
  • It learns to organize its everyday life and receives suggestions for meaningful leisure activities.
  • The parents are intensively involved, for example through counseling sessions, parents' evenings or parent-child meetings.

The goals of education in a day group are

  • the strengthening of the child
  • the strengthening of the parents
  • strengthening the parent-child relationship
  • keeping the child in the family


  • You are the person with custody of a child (parent or guardian)
  • You feel overwhelmed with the upbringing of the child
  • The help by raising your child in a day group is suitable and necessary.
