On behalf of the Kinderzukunft, organizer of the Christmas in a Shoebox campaign, we would like to invite you for a one-month charity sports challenge to support the children village ‘Aldea Infantil’ in Guatemala.
Time period of the challenge: June 1 – June 30, 2021.
Everyone is welcome to participate - from the youngest pre-primary student through graduating S7 students, as well as families, school classes, clubs, companies, and organizations.
Guatemala is a Central American country where two-thirds of the population live in poverty increasingly so as a result of COVID-19. Hunger, malnutrition, poor health, and education are some of the everyday challenges facing its people.
Here is the chance for everyone to help and to make things better.
In 1991, a children's village "Aldea Infantil Rudolf Walther" was established in the highlands of Guatemala. The children's village and is now home to 162 children who are orphaned or abandoned. The village has a kindergarten, a school, a training workshop, and an agricultural project. Every child lives together with nine “step-siblings” and one “step-mother” in one of the 17 family houses. They have a chance to learn and to grow up in a family, where they are cared for. The Aldea Infantil children village also has a breakfast project (Frühstückskinder-Projekt) where they offer every day a breakfast for 150 children from the neighborhood of the school. You can find more information about the children village here and a video here.

We are writing to you to offer important information on current services and changes to EuroKids Service.
As you may be aware, the incidence of Covid-19 cases has been declining in Frankfurt and this has led to a loosening of restrictions to our serviceswith the ESF returning to full schedules for Primary and S1.
Previous Services: Transport Services were being offered mornings and a limited service directly after school for children when attending their ESF in situ lessons or Emergency Childminding.
Actual Services: Regular Transport Services are possible based on parents’ original bus registrations. Parents have been contacted with a reminder of their bus registrations and further information.
If you wish to communicate changes, or have questions with regards to Transport, please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com
Previous Services: Emergency Childcare is taking place for all eligible Children in PP, P1-P5 Children in group A and S1-S2 secondary students in group B. “Let's Move” (PP only) is taking place as per usual.
Actual Services: Limited Childminding Services are be taking place for all children (PP-S2). More information can be found at ESF Parents' Association - Limited Childminding. Parents currently registered for Emergency Childminding did not need to reapply for childcare and have been contacted with more information. All other parents should use the link above for more information. Deadline for applications for Limited Childminding Services is the Friday prior to the week in which the services take place. “Let's Move” (PP only) is taking place as per usual.
Extra Curricular Activities
Previous Services: No in situ extra curricular activities were taking place, only online lessons were taking place. Parents will be contacted shortly with regards to their 2020-2021 registrations and activities for their child for 2021-2022.

Parents currently registered for services have been contacted with more information specific to their registrations. If you have not received information, feel free to let us know. Planning for the 2021-2022 school year is in its final stages and our new Extra Curricular programme, as well as the, childminding school bus registration for 2021-2022, is scheduled to be released online on 01.06.21.

Please find below the latest information on EuroKids services. In short, the only services we will be running until further notice are emergency childminding and online activities. Please note that the law around the eligibility for Emergency Childminding has been tightened and parents previously registered for this service should read the information below very carefully as there are additional requirements.
Am I eligible for Emergency Childminding?
According to German law, Emergency Childminding services are only availlable for single parents, to households with both parents working or in other extreme medical cases which affect the health of a child. Proof of such eligibility will need to be provided in the form of a legal document. Information on this can be found below.
Childcare will be starting for PP from 30.04.21 and for P1-S2 from 27.04.21. We apologise for the later start for PP children owing to the extremely challenging logistics involved in arranging this service.
I have been registered for emergency childminding before, do I need to reapply?
All PP Students need to reapply and the tight deadline for applications is 27.04.21. More information can be found here
P1-S2 students previously registered do not need to apply though must submit documentation of eligibility.
I am new to emergency childminding how do I apply?
More information and applications can be found here
Will childcare Extra (16.00-18.00) be running in the week of 26-30 April?
No, though we aim to be able to provide childcare extra from next week onwards (03.05.21)
When will EuroKids Transport services be running again?
EuroKids Transport service will recommence when the school opens for in situ lessons. According to most recent legislation this will be possible, once Frankfurt has a covid incindence rate lower than 165 cases per 100,000 population for 5 consecutive days. EuroKids will not charge parents for bus services that are not taking place.
We would like to wish you all the best of health through these challenging times and thank you in advance for your understanding in this last minute organisation of Childcare services.

Stay safe and train together!
Due to the lockdown, we are currently not offering on-site courses for children at EuroKids. But that is no reason to mope, because luckily, we have already converted a variety of our much-loved courses into online offerings since the beginning of November 2020.
We offer you and your child a variety of online opportunities to meet online with other children during those times away from home. Whether it is sports, music or creative expression, there is something for everyone. The online course offer has been created with younger children in mind (PP-S5 children). Our live online events are a useful replacement or supplement to our on-site events. We will also be expanding our offerings even further soon! and children are welcome to join at any time.
Here you find the link for our online offers:
