Welcome to

Kita am Karpfenteich!

We, the “Am Karpfenteich” daycare center, have been (independently sponsored) since 2002, as the name suggests, at the Karpfenteich in Treptower Park 70. 

Between the carp pond and the Soviet memorial there is a small detached house with over 100 m² of educational space in the middle of the Treptower Park, a protected garden monument with its 84 hectares, on a fenced area of over 3000 m².

We use the fenced area as a natural and kitchen garden. Adjacent to the Plänterwald, which today has an area of about 72 hectares, where up to 270-year-old beech and oak trees can be found. Both areas are bordered on one side by the Spree. This puts us in the unique position of being able to bring nature closer to children in the city. Because with public transport you can be in the center of Berlin in about 15 minutes.

In the day-care center, 24 children from the age of 1 year until they start school are accompanied by appropriate specialist staff. The opening hours are Mo.-Fr. from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., due to the weekly team meeting, the facility closes at 4 p.m. on Tuesdays.

Zusätzlich zu den vom Land Berlin erhobenen Gebühren nehmen wir für das von einem Cateringservice gelieferten vollwertigen vegetarischen Mittagessen ab Januar 2024 pro gegessenen Essen 3,75 € zusätzlich. Ferner gibt es statt Brotdosen von zu Hause eine von den Eltern organisierte und festgelegte monatliche Umlage für das gemeinsame Frühstück und die Vesper.

An annual plan regulates our daycare year from 01.08. until 31.07. one year.

By building up a constant, mixed-age children's group, we want the children to have fun.

Experience variety and excitement, and promote their skills and individuality in the course of education.


Our pedagogical rooms, such as the nature and kitchen garden, are designed in such a way that they can be used in different ways by the children and thus represent an invitation to the children's world of experience. Education begins at birth. Here we tie in individually with the child. Goals that we pursue in our pedagogical work form our "Mosaik-WeG".


Mosaik – WeG Structure
Means different ped. Content and focal points that are networked in all our facilities. However, due to the different locations, different weightings are experienced.

  • education in everyday life
  • documentation and presence
  • Gestalt – Pedagogical contact concept
  • Clear room concept
  • Encouraging the child's competency areas
  • pedagogical attitude
  • Active implementation of the Berlin Education Program (BBP)
