Joki Harlaching is truly a gem. In the building that was previously used as a silo for the Kraemer mill, the children experience a quiet oasis in the middle of the city. The flow of the Auer Mühlbach stream and the charm of the old mill building bring a special atmosphere to this day care centre. Our rooms on the ground floor and first floor are bright, spacious and furnished to a high standard. Each group has its own room and a separate sleeping room that can also be used for other activities.
The nice, sprawling garden with various pieces of play equipment and sand pits is used exclusively by us. The children can make lots of discoveries about nature in this 900 square metre plot. On our outings we can explore the Isar which is within walking distance, the sheep on our neighbour‘s field and the nearby zoo.
Bilingual care from the beginning: Alongside our German speaking educators, each group will usually have an English native speaker who introduces the children to their language and culture playfully through conversation and games. Using the immersion method, our native speakers converse with the children solely in their native language. The aim is not to teach the children the language in a school-like way, but rather that they come into contact with the foreign language naturally, for example by singing songs and playing games.
Our chef has received intensive training on the special nutritional needs of young children. All meals are prepared freshly each day to ensure they are appropriate for the age of the children. Therefore, it is not necessary to bring any snacks to the day care centre. The menu can also be adjusted for children with allergies.
It goes without saying that the nursery children at Harlaching have priority in receiving a kindergarten place here, so that the children experience the whole of their early years education in the same day care centre and with the same values. This also allows friendships with other children, parents and educators to develop.
Please register for a place in our nursery or kindergarten here.
We are looking forward to welcoming your child and you at Joki Harlaching!

Joki has a very good staff to child ratio. In each group 3-4 educators look after the children in the nursery and the kindergarten.

This promotes intercultural competence in the children, which prepares them for a globalised world. Additionally, their minds will be trained according to well-founded scientific findings without any pressure of a particularly intensive form. A high mental flexibility results all the more, the earlier and more consistently the child finds itself in a multilingual environment. You can find further information at www.fmks-online.de.
