Our Quality Standards

High-quality childcare must fulfil certain requirements. For more than ten years, we at Kleine Riesen, Little Giants & Petits Géants have been living up to our high pedagogical standards when it comes to looking after the children entrusted to us. As part of the Babilou Family Germany, we can rely on our own specialised advisory and quality team. Further information on how we implement our high quality and ensure it in the individual day care centres can be found on the Babilou Family website.

Day care at Kleine Riesen, Little Giants & Petits Géants is based on four principles::



Continuity supports the need of small children for intimate relationships. At Little Giants, we carefully introduce children to day care as well as make transitions to new groups very slowly and carefully.

Individualized Care

Individualized Care

We acknowledge the individual needs of each child. This supports the well-being and positive self-awareness. It is very important that children never feel bad about themselves or excluded from the group, because their needs differ from those of others. Immediate reaction to individual needs fosters the development of independent behavior. Generally the Little Giants program adapts to the child and not vice versa. Therefore, the child feels that it is important, that its needs are satisfied and that its choices, preferences and impulses are respected.

Small Groups

Studies show that small groups and a good caregiver-children-ratio are the two main criteria for high-quality daycare. Generally, the younger the child is, the smaller is the group. Small groups support individualized care, which babies and young children need, the freedom to safely discover and explore and an intimate relationship between children and their primary caregiver.

Small Groups

Primary Care

Little Giants uses primary caregiving. This means that each child is assigned to one primary caregiver, who is the responsible for its care. If the daily attendance of a child exceeds the working hours of the primary caregiver, a second caregiver takes over the care. Our staff works closely together, to ensure smooth teamwork among primary caregivers. Primary caregiving does not mean, that a child has only contact to one person. However, the main responsibility for a child is clearly assigned at all times.
