Education and culture

We register the notifications of private early childhood education and care providers concerning starting, changing or discontinuing the service. When you are starting out as a provider of private early childhood education and care, contact your local authority’s early childhood education and care services. They will give you further information on how to start your business.

Every year, we grant more than EUR 50 million in state aid for youth work, sports and library initiatives.
