Hospital Schooling and Home Schooling

Children who can't attend school for a longer period of time, due to a hospital stay or an illness which keeps them at home for more than six weeks can get schooling in hospital or at home. In Erfurt a team of teachers is based at the “Helios” hospital to provide lessons in the main subjects, namely German, mathematics and English.

Hospital and home schooling was introduced to prevent problems in school and social isolation. It offers the children an environment which is not always dominated by their illness.
