Concept Maternel

Child Care Facility

Child Care Facility

The Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics (MPI-IE) offers child care premises located right next to the institute. The facility is run by Concept Maternel, a well-respected non-profit organization which runs several child care facilities and a primary school in Freiburg.

Its pedagogical concept is based on the principles of Montessori, Freinet and Pikler and promotes the individual development of each child.

Important facets are:

  • active learning
  • child concentration and individual development
  • positive interaction of the child with his/her educators.

The pedagogical work features aesthetical education and creativity, science, culture, bilingual learning (English/German), language promotion and free play. Since June 2012, Concept Maternel provides education for children aged between 6 months to 3 years. In March 2014 the child care facility moved into a large new building close to the MPI-IE. This extension allowed the establishment of a kindergarden group for children aged 3 to 6 years. This way, MPI-IE employees will have the option of leaving their child in same facility until primary school.
