Day Care Centres Building Bridges. Interculturally Oriented Parental Education in the Immigration Society.

Study | June 2014

Parents bear a large responsibility for the educational success of their children in the German education system. But the range of educational and advisory services at day care centres in Germany is often not adapted to the cultural diversity of the families or don't reach immigrant families at all – this is shown by an analysis of the Expert Council's Research Unit. The study identifies the overall conditions that would encourage interculturally oriented parental education in German day care facilities and recommends, among other things, continuous training for educators as well as the formation of partnerships with migrant organisations and other local actors.
