Right to all-day care briefly explained

The DPA Children's News reports with assessments by Dr. Stephan Kielblock.

From 2026, there will be a legal entitlement to all-day care for elementary school children. In the report, DIPF researcher Kielblock explains, among other things, the advantages of all-day school: "The great thing about all-day school is that the children who are enrolled there can develop their personalities particularly well." However, he also addresses the major challenges involved in offering a really good all-day school - such as ensuring that there is a wide variety of offerings and also free space.

In addition, all children could benefit from all-day school - including those from families in socially difficult situations. After all, "not every child lives in a family where the parents have the money or the time to take the child to singing lessons or horseback riding," Kielblock emphasizes.
