In Innsbruck there are numerous school day-care centers and municipal after-school care centers where school children can be looked after in the afternoon.

What is the difference between school day care and after-school care?

  • School day care is directly linked to elementary, special and secondary schools and also takes place at the respective schools. There is also a lunch table there. Pedagogues provide learning support and a varied leisure time care. There are two forms of day care, the interlocked and the separated form.
  • The after-school care centers are independent of the schools. There, it is not teachers who take care of the children, but after-school care teachers. In addition to lunch, learning and leisure activities are also on the program. There are both municipal and private after-school care centers.

School day care

There are 2 forms of school day care:

  • Interlaced form: Students are at school all day. Free time alternates with lessons. In this form, school is compulsory in the afternoons and the child remains at the school for the entire afternoon. The child cannot be looked after at home on individual days.
  • Separate form: The lessons last until lunchtime. In the afternoon the pupils are looked after. Here it is possible that the child only takes advantage of the afternoon care on certain days of the week.

Please note the regulations regarding vacation care.

In the case of school day care, the directorate of the respective elementary school, middle school, or special school that your child attends is responsible.
