When will childcare be available again?

Federal state Answer
Brandenburg The day care centres are open again for all children.
Berlin The care of all children is to take place again to the full extent.
Baden-Württemberg The daycare centres are fully open again.
Bavaria All children are allowed to return to the daycare centres and crèches. Children with a cold and a runny nose should no longer be automatically excluded from visiting the day care centres from September onwards; a guideline on this is currently being prepared. For schools and kindergartens there are multi-stage plans on how to proceed depending on the local pandemic course.
Bremen In the day-care centres, all children are to be cared for in a limited regular operation. Up to 60 children are allowed in all-day care.
Hesse The day-care centres in Hesse are to reopen completely and start regular operations.
Hamburg Kindergartens are back in "normal operation", at least in terms of childcare hours. Parents and educators must observe special hygiene regulations.
Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania All children can again be looked after in the day care centres. There are free corona tests for daycare personnel. Five tests per person at two-week intervals are possible until the autumn holidays.
Lower Saxony The day care centres are open for all children during regular operation.
North Rhine-Westphalia Since 17 August, regular operation has been back in force. The aim is to provide childcare for the number of hours that has been contractually agreed for each child. Employees of schools and daycare centres in NRW can have Corona tested every 14 days until the autumn holidays, voluntarily and free of charge.
Rhineland-Palatinate In the day-care centres, normal regular operation is again in effect.
Schleswig-Holstein The return to regular operation has begun in the daycare centres.

Saxony-Anhalt Kitas are in limited regular operation. They should return to normal operation in the coming weeks.
