On the same site a SOS kindergarten for children from three to six years was erected. Children suffering from minor physical or mental development retardations are also admitted to the SOS kindergarten and the therapists and educators of the SOS Children's Village Sachsen work with them. Moreover, an educational community for children and youth was established, offering temporary external accommodation to up to seven children. This project aims at re-integrating children into their natural family respectively at accompanying youth on their way into independence. A meeting place for children and youth gives SOS children and children from the neighbourhood the chance to spend their spare time together, to receive support with their homework or to seek the advice of educators.
