Question Answer
What are the rules for day care centres? Daycare centres in Bremen can open from 15 February, subject to hygiene regulations. A maximum of 60 children may be cared for together in fixed cohorts. There will be no compulsory testing for Kita children. For working parents who have to take care of their children (under 12) at home due to possible daycare and school closures, there is the so-called children's sick pay. For children with disabilities, the age restriction does not apply. Currently (according to the federal cabinet decision) each parent receives 30 days per child and single parents 60 days per child. In this case, the health insurance fund takes over part of the loss of wages, since the employer does not have to pay the wages for these days. However, the reimbursement amount does not correspond to the full net wage, but is lower.
