Currently you are enjoying the time as a family at home. In the future, the question will arise as to how you can find the right childcare place for your child. Together with you, the staff of the Parent Visiting Service will consider which type of care is suitable for your child and what steps are necessary to take next. In a joint discussion, you will receive information on childcare in kindergartens, with childminders as well as in day-care centres. You will learn everything important about the registration procedures, deadlines and fees.
Leisure as a family
As the daily routine gradually returns and you get used to your new family situation, you may want to get in touch with other families and discover new ways to spend your child's free time. The Parent Visiting Service will introduce you to the most suitable offers in your district or even in the whole of Düsseldorf. For this purpose, we have compiled a collection of different providers of family education for you. It ranges from toddler groups and family reunions to baby swimming or postpartum regression, play- and crawling groups and many more.
The healthy upbringing of your child is particularly important to you as parents, and the Parent Visiting Service would like to support you in this. Perhaps you have questions about breastfeeding or supplementary food. Maybe you are still looking for a suitable paediatrician or you are wondering how you can deal with your baby in an emergency. The Parent Visiting Service can provide you with the right contact persons and offerings for all these matters.
On the go
In the information pack of the Parent Visiting Service you will find a list of places where you can change diapers and breastfeed. This means that if you are travelling with your baby, you do not have to search for an opportunity for an unnecessarily long time. The documents also include an overview of playgrounds and (child-) flea markets.
In addition, the staff of the Parent Visiting Service will inform you about the Düsseldorf Family Card, which can be used to get various discounts from many partners throughout the city. If you wish, you can fill in the application form during the appointment and our staff will send it to you afterwards.
Hand in hand
Being a family is not always easy. Things may not be working out the way you thought they would. Or unplanned situations have arisen that make your everyday life more difficult.
The Parent Visiting Service will listen to you and discuss with you where to find support. The staff will be happy to get you in touch with the right offerings for you.
During our visit, the Parent Visiting Service will bring you the Parents' Information for parents in Düsseldorf with children aged zero to four. If questions arise at a later point in time, you will find various contact persons for the services offered in Düsseldorf in the information provided.
