5 years of courses at Kifaz

The course instructers and co-operation partners of the protestant Children and Family centre in the Rosengärtchen area celebrated the 5th anniversary of their courses on Tuesday this week.  The courses that the family centre offers coupled with the daycare facilities mean that the centre is able to offer continued support for children and their families from before birth up to the start of primary school.

The courses such as antenatal classes, baby massage and parenting are partly funded by peoples health insurance, but the centre also works with the “Frühe Hilfen” and “Oberursel-Pass” projects in the town.
