We’re moving!

There’s construction on Holstenstraße and we have to give way…

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

It’s there that the building cooperative Hamburger Wohnen is constructing a new Kita for us according to our specifications, where we will be able to care for two “Krippe” groups and one “Elementar” group. We’re planning to move in during our summer break and are excited to welcome all families to the new Kita on August 10, 2020.


We’re looking forward to being in 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 discussion 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):                           5 / 2020
  • In the Elementargruppe (3–6 years):      5 / 2020

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.
