We are a parent initiative

As a parent initiative, the kindergarten not only welcomes, but also relies on parental involvement. Depending on individual interests, each child's parents are responsible for a certain task on the association's board of management or on one of our committees.  

The board of management consists of five members, who are elected from and by the parents at our Annual General Meeting in March for a period of one year. In addition, there are committees for repairs and cleaning, enrollment and organizing/publicity. Parents' meetings are held every two months. There aren't any daily cleaning or cooking duties for parents.  

Parents and teachers can join forces to organize parties - there's always a reason to celebrate. The parents' involvement is a significant factor in the friendly and family-like atmosphere at our kindergarten and makes possible an especially constructive co-operation between the parents and the teaching team for the sake of our children.

The Chocolate Butterflies Kindergarten receives both moral and financial support from the Social Affairs Department of the City of Munich. In Munich, a permit is required for running a kindergarten. Our registered association, the Chocolate Butterflies e.V., has received this permit in 1995 from the City of Munich and the Government of Upper Bavaria.
