In recent years, children's daycare facilities have attracted increasing interest among institutional real estate investors. In this report, Cushman & Wakefield would like to present a niche market that has thus far received far too little attention.
Due to the fact that there is a legal right to childcare in Germany but the supply landscape does not provide appropriate coverage to adequately meet demand, childcare in Germany is a socially and politically hot topic! The everyday life of about 11.4 million families with children is dependent on a professional childcare service in Germany. And the need for children's day care facilities is growing.
According to a study by the German Economic Institute in 2018, there was a deficit of over 300,000 daycare slots for the under-3 age group alone. In addition, the Bertelsmann Foundation prognosticated that, as many as 583,000 new trained child care workers will be required by 2025.
We are also pleased to present two expert interviews; one with Daniel Wolf, Head of Asset Management at E&G, and the second with Sascia Hauke, Head of Transaction Management and Anahita Afzalkhani, Senior Transaction Manager, at AviaRent Invest AG, and thus with two real estate investors active in the field of social real estate.
The Children's Day Care Real Estate report provides some interesting findings as well as transparency in what is still a very under-explored market.
