Change of provider

We aim to keep what is good whenever we take over a childcare centre. Together, we create perspectives in which the tried-and-tested and the familiar remain and new impulses are set in education and organisation.

There can be many good reasons for a change: the tasks and requirements in financing and organizing a childcare centre are becoming increasingly complex – take hygiene, data protection or funding management, for example. At the same time, the educational work must be designed, regularly reviewed and continuously updated. This can quickly limit its scope and extent. In addition, it is often not easy to find committed people, whether on a voluntary basis or as a full-time occupation, to take on this responsibility.

As a first step, we jointly determine the current state of affairs and you decide what we can support you with. This result is then the starting point for the path we take together.

Changing provider with educcare means :

  • The burden on those responsible – childcare centre management, parents’ boards, provider – is reduced, and the quality of the childcare centre is assured and if necessary, improved.
  • You benefit from our experience. We have successfully accompanied childcare centres and funding agencies from the initial support to the transfer of operations, including taking over the entire team.
  • You can rely on a structured and transparent transition.


The way ahead!

Once the change of provider has been decided, we prepare the transition process in partnership with you. The aim is to ensure that children, parents and the centre’s team feel comfortable and that their needs are taken into account. You will experience the pedagogical concept and the transition as enrichment for you and your childcare centre.

The Ruppichteroth example

The parents’ initiative Winterscheider Wirbelwinde was a fixed and recognised part of the Ruppichteroth community for 20 years. However, the steadily increasing demands on operational, personnel and funding issues as well as the increasing professional activity of the parents made voluntary management by the parents increasingly difficult.

So, in the summer of 2019, the parents, in coordination with the Ruppichteroth municipality, started looking for a new operator. When educcare and the Winterscheider Wirbelwinde got to know each other, it quickly became clear that there was much common ground. Pedagogical quality, the childcare centre as a place of learning and development and an educational partnership are just some of the mutual key aspects.

In only five months, all those involved in the day care centre, the municipality (council and administration) and educcare implemented the change of provider. Marcus Bracht, Managing Director of educcare, is enthusiastic: “The Wirbelwinde are a great enrichment for educcare. A highly motivated team and excellent management, individual focal points such as certification as a movement day care centre and a good connection to community life make the day care centre special.”

Mario Loskill, mayor of the municipality of Ruppichteroth, was also pleased: “I would like to thank the current board and the previous board members of the parents’ initiative most sincerely for their more than twenty years of voluntary, excellent work as providors of the Winterscheider Wirbelwinde day care centre. … With educcare, a provider has been found who is able to continue this great work. … I am looking forward to a good cooperation with the new provider, who will enrich our community just like the previous parents’ initiative.”
