Almost 30 years of experience in the early childhood sector

FRÖBEL stands for excellence in early childhood education and care, pedagogy, best practice and innovation for next practice – Made in Germany. We are looking back on almost 30 years of experience in the early childhood sector.

FRÖBEL is Germany’s largest non-profit provider of early childhood education and care, with centres across Germany and in Poland and Australia.

FRÖBEL operates around 180 nurseries, kindergartens and after-school clubs, as well as other facilities in ten federal states. More than 3,600 employees work together to achieve the best education, upbringing and care of more than 16,000 children.

At the same time, we are expanding our consultancy services due to growing worldwide demand for high quality early education. FRÖBEL draws from the pedagogical international best practice standards developed in Germany, from the extensive expertise in the sector and many years of experience in international markets.

We are committed to the ideals and tradition of our eponym Friedrich Fröbel. As a progressive educator and innovator, he is the founder of the “kindergarten” and a proponent of children’s rights by putting each child’s individual personality, talents and interests at the center of his pedagogical ideas.
