Child-care Centres

Dancing children (Photo: A. Piegler)Parents in Vienna have a well-structured network of child-care institutions at their disposal. There is a total of approximately 75,000 places at private and municipal day-care centres, 1,700 places in children's groups, as well as approximately 1,500 places with day parents.

Half of the day nurseries, kindergartens and after-school centres are operated by the Vienna City Administration. Municipal Department 10 supports many private institutions as well.

Day nurseries are available for one in two children below the age of three. This meets the current demands for daycare in this age group. Supply of daycare for children at kindergarten age is almost 100 percent. There is after-school care in the afternoons for all children of school age who require it.

The Vienna City Administration offers three types of child-care: day nurseries, kindergartens and after-school centres. On the private sector there are children's groups and day parents too.
