FAMILY PACKAGES

Moving top a new country or city with a family in tow is a challenge and adds a lot of worries to decision and adaption process. Our Family Packages help to reduce them.

Your spouse will loose her or his social network and in many cases her or his employment. Finding a new occupation and developing a new network is a sometimes daunting experience. For children, the change can be exrraordinary hard as they may loose theri close ties to grandparents and best friends, and have to adjust to a completely different education system. Our family packages help you understanding the possibilities in Germany and create a positive attitude of all family members.

Understanding the German childcare and education system is a critical topic for families since our children’s happiness is so absolutely important to us. They have no word in their parents’ decision to move to Germany, so the least thing we can do is the reduce the negative impacts the move will have on their personality as well as education. Our support here is highly appreciated by the family and often a vital criteria for the decision to accept an employment offer.

The search for childcare for younger children is extremely difficult in urban areas. We search for a daycare (“Tagesmutter”), or a creche or a kindergarten. It is not guaranteed that a free space is found. The full package is rather expensive due to that effort, so we would recommend to start with a small individual service and enhance when necessary.

We can also help your spouse to feel home and understand his or her value on the German job market. Our relocation guide offers a lot of information on family life in Germany.

Finally, families are entitled to a lot of family benefits: from child allowance to childcare vouchers - we support your application.

On this website you can find officially sponsored content by the Foreigners' Office of Berlin - valid for entire Germany.

You can book all service individually.
