Not only the children which are living in St. Isidor are visiting the kindergarten and the after school care centre also other one.
Our principle: “We support integration” stands behind our work and our encounter with people with special needs. The key tasks of the Caritas (for people with disabilities) are encouragement and attendance for people with special needs through the integration process into everyday life. Through furtherance and attendance for children, young-adults and adults, it helps to relief families as well as education and help for occupational integration. The provider of our institution is the catholic church, but our children have different religions.
