We started out as a very small project in 1997, and began by knocking on the door of the Mayor. Who would have thought back then that we would later work successfully with such a large number of childcare institutions!
When we first make contact with a kindergarten, school or after-school childcare centre, we inform the head of the institutions about our research projects and discuss the conditions together with them, for example, possible rooms in which to conduct our studies. We are pleased to help distribute parent letters and consent forms, and then collect the signed and returned letters.
We have over 160 cooperation partners (kindergartens, schools and after-school childcare centres) throughout Leipzig.
