Social and curative education measures are intended to support the children and young people. Education in a day group is a semi-stationary offer. This means that the child receives: the therapeutic and educational offer as in the case of inpatient accommodation (e.B. in a home or in a foster family), educational benefits that it does not receive sufficiently in the family, and school support The child is cared for during the week during the day after school in the day group and can stay in the family and thus in his usual environment. Social learning and a regulated daily structure help children and young people to cope with conflicts or to shape their everyday lives and offer, among other things, suggestions for meaningful leisure activities. In addition, the children receive support in school matters, young people are helped with professional integration. The group size is usually between eight and ten children. The Youth Welfare Office involves parents intensively in the education in a day group (e.B. through targeted consultations, parents' evenings, parental leisure time or parent-child meetings).

Please clarify with the Youth Welfare Office which documents you have to submit.


The parents with custody must apply for education in a day group at the responsible youth welfare office. This decides whether the education of the child in a day group is a suitable measure. Before the Youth Welfare Office approves the education in a day group, all those involved jointly draw up a help plan. It specifies how the aid is to be designed and how long it is to be provided. Education in a day group can take different lengths of time, depending on what duration is considered necessary for the child.
