What does the LITTLE BIRD parents’ online portal do?

The parents’ online portal is a service from the city of Essen which aims to facilitate the search by parents for childcare facilities. As interested parents, you have the opportunity to research childcare services in the city of Essen according to your requirements and wishes and to obtain information about the individual offerings, concepts etc. You can visit the portal without providing any personal information about yourself or your child. This applies both with respect to searching for childcare services and finding information on the participating childcare providers.

The provision of certain personal information is only required if you wish to make a reservation for your child. In this case your data will be stored on the server of regio iT gesellschaft für informationstechnologie mbh and passed on to the respective childcare provider if you have issued corresponding consent to this. A reservation is not possible without this consent. Participation in the electronic reservation process is on a voluntary basis. You of course still have the possibility of directly contacting all day care centres run by the city of Essen and independent operators along with the professional day care associations.
