All-day program; application for the establishment and funding of open all-day programs

The Free State of Bavaria supports open all-day programs at schools. Open all-day programs are approved upon application by the school authority.



In order to enable mothers and fathers to reconcile family and career as well as appropriate forms of family division of labor, all-day schools offer families not only care, but also educational support. However, Bavaria is not only sending out a socio-political signal with all-day schools, but is also focusing primarily on educational goals. All-day school is an educational offer with a distinct quality of content. More time is available for extended educational and support opportunities. All-day schools in Bavaria are committed to the triad of education, upbringing and care.


The Free State of Bavaria provides funding to cover additional personnel costs for open all-day programs at state and municipal schools as well as independent schools.

Type and amount

Depending on the type of school, the grant per open all-day group (until 4 p.m.) and school year currently amounts to between 24,246.00 and 39,173.00 euros at municipal schools and independent schools. State schools receive a budget per group and school year of between EUR 30,949.00 and EUR 45,876.00, which includes a municipal co-financing lump sum of currently EUR 6,703.00.

Short groups in the open all-day program (grades 1-4) at municipal schools and independent schools are funded with an amount of EUR 6,103.00. Short groups in the open all-day program at state schools receive a budget of 12,206.00 euros, which also includes a share of 6,103.00 euros from the material expenditure provider.

Recipient of funding

The funding is paid to the school expenditure provider or cooperation partner.


The funding of an open all-day program requires, among other things, that

  • an all-day program is provided for pupils on at least four days of the week, generally until 4 p.m,
  • lunch is provided for the participating pupils on all days of the all-day school program and
  • the educational and support services are organized and carried out under the supervision and responsibility of the school management and are conceptually linked to the lessons.
The other requirements for approval can be found in the respective announcement by the Ministry of Education and Cultural Affairs and in the documents for the annual application procedure.


The application for the establishment of an open all-day program must be prepared by the school management. The application must be submitted by the school (cost) provider to the responsible government by the application deadline set each year for the following school year - in the case of elementary school and secondary schools via the state education authorities or via the offices of the ministerial representatives in the case of secondary schools and grammar schools, and directly in the case of business schools and special schools.

The state education authorities and offices of the ministerial commissioners forward the applications to the responsible government.

The governments are responsible, among other things, for approving and authorizing the open all-day offer, for paying out the funding and checking the proof of use.


The application date is announced as part of the annual application and approval process.
