YES!! I wish I can go back in time with what I know now, I had a baby in mid-2018. Still trying to settle after all these years, and the non-functional winters are never ending. Next year school will start and I honestly wonder if signing up for Kita and the stress to find one in Berlin was worth it at all at this point.

Thank you!

I know it was worth getting a Kita place, but yeah, it sure as hell hasn't been the Golden Ticket I had believed it would be. At least we're not paying through the nose for care we can't actually use, like folks in other countries. That would really, really put me over the edge.

When the children were little, we called daycare The Viral Exchange Program.
