We have places available in the kindergarten section.
The Mobi day-care centre has three nursery groups, three kindergarten groups and a Bridge Year group. Our day-care centre is also equipped for children with early intervention needs.
All children who are new to the facility are helped in the process of settling in following evaluated acclimatisation models for day-care centres.
Mobility and bilingualism are the two main focuses at Mobi day-care centre. Our team works following the principle of immersion bilingually in English and German (with native or near-native speakers). We work in cooperation with the nearby ETV and SC Victoria sports clubs, and the day-care centre is able to use their gyms and sporting fields. Swimming courses take place weekly in the Lohkampstraße training pool. In addition, parents can purchase dancing lessons for the children and a course for early musical education.
Excursions are an important part of our everyday life with the children. We often go to the playgrounds in the immediate vicinity. Our destinations include the Niendorfer Gehege recreational area and public library, or we explore the district. In addition, project work takes place, e.g. under the headings “seasonal garden” or “forest”.
We value wholefoods and healthy nutrition. The children drink still water, occasionally a very diluted juice spritzer. Lunch is freshly prepared and delivered daily by the “Vollmund” caterer.

The Mobi day-care centre opened on 4 June 2013 and was the 27th facility of Stiftung Kindergärten Finkenau to do so. Located in the heart of a new housing area in Hamburg Lokstedt, the Mobi day-care centre is an important meeting point for the families who live here.
Day-care centre team
Qualified educators from a range of professions work at Finkenau’s facilities. Housekeeping and cleaning staff are also an integral part of the team. We are particularly committed to providing interns with qualified training.
Some teams receive additional support from volunteers or federal volunteers (“Bundesfreiwillige”).
Case discussions are held and pedagogical topics as well as conceptual and organisational matters discussed at the staff meetings that take place regularly. Our employees’ documentation and observation of the children’s development is an essential part of the work. All employees attend training courses on a regular basis.
