The Waldorf kindergarten in Fellbach has existed for 40 years. It is now one of the most important care facilities.

Fellbach – Waltraut Maier remembers the beginnings of the Fellbach Waldorf Kindergarten a little more than 40 years ago. The story of today’s kindergarten began in 1970 with "sandpit conversations" between parents about children and their upbringing, she says. "In 1971 some parents finally decided on the basis of these discussions to found the association for the promotion of child-appropriate education in Fellbach and to look after children in a group according to Waldorf pedagogical criteria," reports the 78-year-old founder of the Fellbach Waldorf Kindergarten.
