The promotion of children can only be efficient in cooperation with their parents and family.
The municipal "Kinderhaus" (House of Children) offers courses on parental education, adult education, leisure activities and help in education on a broader scale to strengthen competences required for the promotion of children.
Particularly young mothers and fathers become more familiar with their own competences and get support for their educational task in order to facilitate a positive perspective to their children. Scientific research proves that socially disadvantaged families benefit considerably from support by Family Centres to compensate for possible disadvantages.
In accordance with this scientific research, the Family Centre Heidenheim approaches families in various ways.
