element-i’s first comprehensive education facility
Curiosity, joy, an urge to explore – these are the traits that the youth of today need for the challenges of life. Our element-i educational philosophy takes this principle into account, and also provides each child with the support and challenge it needs in keeping with its own interests. We have been implementing our educational philosophy successfully for 20 years in our 40 element-i child care centres and primary schools.
A parental initiative was the spark that ignited all this and motivated us to further evolve our educational and care philosophy and to develop a comprehensive education centre. Our vision: To enable learning based on the element-i educational philosophy without jarring transitions – from nursery to the end of mandatory schooling. This gave rise to the idea of the first element-i comprehensive education centre in Karlsruhe, an important economic centre. This facility will be opened in September 2019.
Seamless learning and continuity
The element-i comprehensive education centre in Karlsruhe offers consistent education and care and enables work and family life to be brought into perfect harmony.
The benefits at a glance:

The element-i comprehensive education centre will host a child care centre, primary school, secondary school and an educator training academy from the 2019/2020 school year. A total of 670 children of all ages will receive care and education under the umbrella of the element-i comprehensive education centre. The property, measuring 6,850 m², is located at Konrad-Zuse-Strasse 11–13 (at the end of the road “Im Vogelsand”) at the northeastern edge of the Technology Park Karlsruhe (TPK).
Because the Karlsruhe comprehensive education centre unifies several institutions under one roof, you can register yourself or your children via the websites of the school in question.
