Munich, January 2020
We are very pleased to have been awarded the German Kindergarten Quality Seal by PädQUIS (formerly EduCert®GmbH, founded and led by Prof. Wolfgang Tietze from the Department of Early Childhood Education at the Free University of Berlin) for our two locations Bogenhausen (certified since 2018) and Waldtrudering (certified since 2019).
The certification referred to the pedagogical work, organization, structure, conception, processes and quality in the house.
The seal of approval is based on a broad professional consensus on characteristics and criteria of good pedagogical quality of daycare centers. The selection of quality criteria to be reviewed is based on the extent to which good quality promotes the development and education of children and supports parents in the care and upbringing of their children. With the seal of approval, uniform quality standards are to apply nationwide across regional and carrier-specific circumstances.
By participating in this procedure, cocon has disclosed its entire pedagogical and procedural working methods and we have thus allowed ourselves to be measured against high professional standards by an independent external body.
We are all the more pleased that we have scored “very good” overall.
First and foremost, we would like to thank our head teachers and their teaching team, who devote themselves to the children and their daily lives with a lot of dedication, heart and professionalism, and who implement the concept of our house so lovingly and professionally at the same time.
