The proportion of children who are placed in day care and not in a daycare center has changed in recent years.

Potsdam - In Brandenburg, fewer and fewer children are placed in day care. At the beginning of March of this year, 3471 children were cared for by around 900 child minders, as the answer from Education Minister Britta Ernst (SPD) to a request from CDU MP Kristy Augustin, which was published on Wednesday. A year earlier there were 4127 children in day care (with 991 day care workers), in March 2019 there were 4134 children (1014 day care workers). The share of children among child minders and child minders fell from 2.2 percent in 2019 to 1.8 percent this year.

The proportion of children who are housed with child minders and not in a day care center varies from region to region: In the districts of Havelland and Oberhavel, 2.9 percent of the children were in day care at the beginning of March, in Frankfurt (Oder) and the districts Prignitz and Ostprignitz-Ruppin were only 0.6 percent.

In the whole of Brandenburg the proportion is 1.8 percent.

Two years ago it was 2.2 percent.
