between the age of 1 and 6 years
About 180.000 children between the age of 1 and 6 years are living in the city of Berlin (State: Dezember 2016). More than 2.500 Kitas (childcare/daycare) are serving those in need, spread throughout the city of Berlin.
Even though, some districts have a little more children per 50 inhabitants than the average district (e.g. Pankow and Lichtenberg), most districts show a similar pattern. Due to higher population density and district size, districts like Pankow and Mitte need to support a larger number of children than their neighbouring districts.
equals about 453 children between the age of 1 and 6 years
The senate administration for education, youth and family is already providing their citizens with access to information on all of Berlin's Kitas through a search engine. The Ideation & Prototyping lab is continuously exploring novel user-friendly interfaces in order to enable citizens to explore their cities data vaults. As a result, we build a map-based search interface, which allows citizens to find their local Kita.
