Learning together, growing together: Education in Görlitz

Education is a top priority in Görlitz, and this is particularly evident in the diversity of its educational institutions. From kindergartens and primary schools to grammar schools and vocational schools, the city offers a wide range of learning centres for children, young people and adults.

Görlitz's educational institutions offer an atmosphere of co-operation and shared growth. It is not just about learning facts, but also about discovering talents, fostering creativity and strengthening community spirit. Innovative teaching methods, interactive learning environments and close co-operation between children, teachers and parents create an inspiring educational environment.

Day care centres

The European City of Görlitz-Zgorzelec and its surrounding area are a paradise for children. There is plenty of space and opportunities for them to try things out. When mum and dad are at work, the little ones experience new adventures every day with their friends at the daycare centre. As well as having fun, it's also about the children's education. Görlitz-Zgorzelec has numerous facilities for this, whether private or municipal, with various educational concepts. In some cases, children can also attend German-Polish daycare centres.

If you are looking for a place in a daycare centre, you can find an overview and lots of information in different languages on the service page of the city of Görlitz:
