The care concept was developed by our educational staff under the leadership of Ms. Heinze and coordinated with the school management.

The Elisabethschule currently employs a total of seven pedagogical staff. Together they look after about 119 children of our school.

This is our support team:

Rooms of the care group:

The rooms on the second floor (entrance B) are used for supervision. The rooms are equipped for the supervision. In addition to the various play areas, there is a reading corner and a dining room. For further activities the workroom, the school kitchen, the gym and the schoolyard are used if they are not needed for lessons.

What is care?

In contrast to the “open all-day school”, which usually offers an extra-curricular institution and only fixed binding times, the Elisabethschule has a flexible care offer, i.e. parents can use the care for their children individually according to their needs and only pay for the care time actually used (graduated prices).

The support is provided by the Förderverein der Elisabethschule e.V., which is responsible for personnel and material matters.

Our care gives parents the assurance that their child will be looked after at school for a certain period of time. We offer childcare in the morning hours when there are no classes. This ensures reliable school hours from 7.30 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. every day and, if necessary, until 4.00 p.m. for the children cared for. In addition, the children eat lunch together, do their homework and take advantage of open cultural and sporting opportunities.


The aim of the care at our school is to provide children with reliable care that takes the following aspects into account:

  • Promotion of the personality development of each individual child
  • Promotion, support and guidance on social behaviour and tolerance
  • Promotion of independence and personal responsibility
  • leisure activities
  • Playful balance to school
  • Teaching of learning content beyond the learning plan by AGs in the different areas
  • Supervision of homework assignments
  • Tolerance towards every child

Organizational framework conditions:

For all classes there is daily supervision from 7:30 am to 9:00 am and from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Pick-up timesFor organisational reasons and for the good of your child, we would like to ask you to observe the following fixed pick-up times:

Registration for support

In order to guarantee a continuous and high-quality range of childcare services and to be able to carry out personnel planning that covers all needs, it is absolutely essential that parents register their children for childcare for the following year before starting school (future first graders on the registration days) or at the end of each school year (at least one month before). Additional registrations or cancellations during the current school year are only possible in special cases of hardship.

Equipping the care work with materials

The necessary working materials (playground equipment, furniture) are financed from the budget of the Förderverein der Elisabethschule e.V. (Elisabeth School Support Association). Due to the special commitment of the support association, the equipment for the work in the support groups has improved continuously. In addition, some additional materials could be purchased in the past due to donations of individual associations (e.g. Sparkasse Vest).

homework supervision

What homework supervision does:

  • The homework time is an integral part of the care schedule. They thus form a link between the morning at school and the afternoon care.
  • The homework time is carried out in as quiet an atmosphere as possible and accompanied by employees who are only responsible for homework supervision. The caregivers always remain in the care rooms and send the children to the homework centre depending on the vacancies.
  • The students are given the space and time to carry out their tasks independently and on their own responsibility.
  • As far as possible, pupils receive individual help within the framework of homework supervision.

What homework supervision can’t do:

  • The homework supervision is not a tutoring and not a preparation for class tests, but a possibility to do the homework independently with pedagogical accompaniment. The processing of knowledge gaps cannot take place.
  • Due to the size of the group, individual supervision is only possible to a limited extent.
  • Complete homework and supervision cannot be guaranteed as it depends on factors such as concentration, individual pace of work and homeworkload.
  • Exercises in reading, for class tests or memorizing texts cannot be done. Such tasks have to be done at home.
  • The parents remain responsible for the complete and orderly preparation of the homework.

Behavioural principles in homework supervision: The common behavioural principle is the school regulations, from which the behavioural principles for pupils in homework supervision can be derived. If homework is refused or if behaviour disturbs other pupils during homework, homework support is stopped on the day in question. Parents and class teachers will be informed. The homework has to be done at home.

Content design of the support offer:

Our childcare concept attaches great importance to ensuring that children can take advantage of a wide range of afternoon activities. In addition, the children can use the time as free time: a free space in which they can engage themselves, with materials that they can choose freely, and with carers who guide and accompany them.

Offers and activities

The support is understood as a time of playing and promoting (perception, motor skills and social behaviour). In this time open and firm offers run off. The basic principle of the use of care services is based on voluntariness, i.e. the children themselves decide which services they want to take advantage of. Care is taken to ensure that any work or games that have been started are completed. Finished handicrafts and pictures are hung up and thus serve to embellish the care rooms and the school building. The children are allowed to take home any work that is not exhibited.

In good weather, it goes without saying that children spend their care time outside.

Free play in the schoolyard

  • Exercise and play in the fresh air
  • Games around the ball (basketball, football, etc.)
  • Movement games in the group according to rules and guidelines
  • Circle and singing games
  • Coordination games for promotion
  • Reaction games for promotion
  • Short walks

For playing in the playground, for example, the following variable play equipment is available: Pedalos, skateboards, city scooters, small table football, stilts, ropes, balls, water toys, sand toys and street chalk.
