Sankofa’s waiting list is currently open, for children aged 3 years and older!
All applications are thoroughly reviewed, and acceptance into our program is made based on connection to African Diaspora, your child’s age and developmental needs and the level of your support for / interest in Sankofa’s vision and educational philosophy.
If you are interested in sending your child to Sankofa, please fill out the admissions form and email it to:
firstname.lastname@example.org or send it by post to: Sankofa e.V., Bundesallee 38, 10717 Berlin
You will also need to apply for a childcare voucher or “Kitagutschein” with your local Jugendamt (regardless of which Kita you want to send your child to).
Please allow 8 weeks for the Kitagutschein to be processed. If you have questions or concerns regarding the Kitagutschein application process, you may contact us.
An important note: When applying for your Kitagutschein, please tick the box on the application that indicates that your language at home is primarily non-German or “überwiegend nicht deutsch” if you can. The majority of our families speak English or French at home and therefore qualify, but many parents are not aware that Sankofa (or any other Kita) receives additional government funding – at no extra cost for the family — if you check this box.
