Kindergarten & Day Nursery Registration

On this page:


  • There is one fixed date every year for registration for the municipal kindergartens and day nurseries. Any applications for registration received on this date will be given priority over registrations made after this date.
  • The children registered are ranked according to age. If there are more registrations than places for a day nursery, the older children will be given priority.
  • Early registration prior to this registration date is not possible.

Registration process

The registration for the year 2021/ 2022 has taken place until 10 March 2021.

The general principle applies that for a child to be admitted to a Leoben kindergarten, the principal place of residence of this child must be Leoben. This means that priority will be given to applications from Leoben citizens.

  • Children from outside Leoben will be admitted to kindergartens if there are free places.
  • Nurseries have a waiting list for children from outside Leoben.
  • Nursery: Children up to age of 3 can be registered.
  • Kindergarten: Children from the age of 3 can be registered.

  • Completed admission form for the desired form of care
  • Birth certificate of the child you wish to register
