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

  • Nurseries have a waiting list for children from outside Leoben.
  • Nursery: Children up to the age of 3 can be registered.
