The management of day care centres today increasingly requires sound management skills in addition to solid and up-to-date pedagogical competences. The in-service training "Kita Management" therefore covers a wide range of topics from the fields of management, organisation, law and imparts leadership skills. The participants' own role as a manager is examined as well as how to lead a team and deal with conflicts. At the same time, it is about a contemporary concept of education, about topics such as diversity and inclusion. Current findings from developmental psychology and the integration of the family as a partner in educational work are further focal points.
