Please mind our new adress:       An der Kleiderkasse 11

We have moved:  

There will be construction on Holstenstraße and we had to give way…

So we’ve applied for a site in the Neue Mitte Altona.

It’s there that the building cooperative Hamburger Wohnen has  constructed a new Kita for us according to our specifications, where we are able to care for two “Krippe” groups and one “Elementar” group. We were suposed to move over in August but unfortunately Corona destroyed our plans. We have started in October 2020 at our new place:    An der Kleiderkasse 11,   22765 Hamburg


We’re happy to enjoy a lively neighborhood, taking part in inclusive projects and having space for joint activities.

Places available



Before a child can begin at Maimouna, an intensive exchange will take place; wherever possible, this will be conducted in your preferred language.

In the “settling-in” phase in the Krippe (generally about three weeks), we expect you to be flexibly available. Please apply for your voucher at the “Jugendamt” (KTB) with at least a four-week lead-up prior to beginning a new job or course of study.




  • In the Krippe (0–3 years):                             2 / 2022
  • In the Elementargruppe (3–6 years):        8 / 2022

Children with special needs welcome !


The Maimouna Kinderladen is officially recognized as a so-called “Inklusionskita,” meaning that we are equipped to support children who have special needs. Children with handicap are welcome.


We don’t focus on the “deficits” of a child but instead concentrate our energy on removing the barriers these children face in terms of learning and participation.

Info days for interested parents of children of color

At the moment, we cannot invite you to info days. Please contact us by filling the form:
