Shortly before the coming winter, the parents of Karl Lauterbach Kindergarten have a big concern. Kindergartens will no longer be closed worldwide. This could already be said, because the “Corona Daycare Study” of the Robert Koch Institute showed that day care centers are not a source of infection.
The federal minister of health is still skeptical about the coming months.
“The coming coronavirus winter will be a challenge for families and children as well. Unfortunately, the epidemic is not over.”

Breathe a sigh of relief for kindergarten parents
However, renewed national day care closures should not be expected because “day care centers have never been a source of infection,” Lauterbach said. And then. “So it must be said, according to today’s knowledge, the realization clearly comes that the closing of kindergartens would not have been necessary at the beginning of the epidemic.” This is a statement that gives parents a sigh of relief, and probably angers one or the other. Especially when they hear the second important finding of the “Corona Daycare Study”.
A sad record
The study once again scientifically confirms what many parents suspected and felt themselves: the closing of kindergartens was a great burden for children and their parents. It is also not surprising to find that children from economically disadvantaged families are relatively more severely affected. Half of the 5,000 day care centers surveyed reported an overwhelming need for support. Federal Family Minister Lisa Paus emphasizes this assessment.
“With a high proportion of children from socially disadvantaged families, day care centers now have almost twice as many support needs for language, motor skills and social and emotional development as before the pandemic.”
If you want to relive how the little Cov2 virus managed to (almost) stop the world, let dolphins swim in the canals of Venice and close day care centers and schools around the world, here’s a movie tip from 2020 that requires: you go back to the early days of the epidemic and the apocalyptic attitude to life at that time;
