IMPORTANT NOTE on the use of the "KitaTeddy" APP

IMPORTANT NOTE on the use of the "KitaTeddy" APP

Dear parents,

we are increasingly receiving inquiries from families who have used the KitaTeddy app to "reserve" a place in their preferred daycare center.
However, a reservation can only be made via the parent portal of the City of Cologne or in person at the respective daycare center!

In the KitaTeddy app, you will be asked to enter your access data for the parents' portal.
Sharing access data can have serious consequences: With the access data, the operator of the KitaTeddy app has the possibility to change your data at any time.
This concerns, among other things

  • changing access data such as user name and password,
  • exchanging contact and personal data such as name and address,
  • deleting childcare requests and even rejecting childcare offers.


We strongly recommend that you do not pass on your access data for the LITTLE BIRD parent portal to third parties.

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us:

  • in person at the family office at Ottmar-Pohl-Platz 1, 51103 Cologne
  • by e-mail
  • by telephone via the citizens' hotline on 0221 / 221-30300

Ban on additional contributions

Information for parents: ban on additional contributions

Dear Parents,

Due to inquiries we have received, we would like to inform you that according to Section 51 (1) Sentence 3 KiBiz, no additional costs may be charged by daycare facilities. 

This includes, among other things, "mandatory" memberships in booster clubs and mandatory courses.

In addition to the parental contributions levied by the City of Cologne, daycare centers may charge an appropriate fee for meals. 

Separate regulations apply to parent initiatives, since there you, as a parent, take on the characteristics of a sponsor.

Should you notice such a procedure, please inform us by e-mail.
