rainbowtrekkers Kita gGmbH is an independent provider of bilingual day care centers in Cologne. We care for 160 children in three facilities in English and German between the ages of 1 and 6. At Rainbowtrekkers we have a so-called "eclectic" approach, i.e. our approach is made up of different pedagogical action concepts from all over the world. We base our pedagogical work on these ideas. A respectful attitude towards the child's personality must be the starting point of all education.
The rainbow stands for the diversity of the children who visit our daycare centers. Trekkers come from the English word for the journey (trekking) and indicate that education is a flowing process - a journey into life on which we accompany the children in our daycare centers.

We are looking for new colleagues to expand our international team, who

  • who is ready for full-time (40 hrs./week) or part-time 

  • who create an environment in which children feel safe and secure and in which they can develop optimally

  • who respond to children individually, taking into account their respective needs and personalities

  • who participate in the planning and implementation of the daily program of appropriate developmental activities according to the rainbowtrekkers curriculum/NRW Bildungsgrundsätze

  • who observe, evaluate, and document the social and physical development and behavior of the children
