Despite increased coronavirus-related restrictions, the Advent-Wohlfahrtswerkes (Advent Welfare Organization) kindergarten in Fürth, northwest of Nuremberg, Bavaria, reopened as planned on January 11, 2021.
After 17 months of construction, the building team completed a day-care center in the new community center of the local Seventh-day Adventist congregation.
“It is with great appreciation that we can report that the urgent wish for new premises for the kindergarten came true after a total of five years of planning and construction,” Jürgen Hildebrandt, head of the department for early childhood education of Advent Welfare Organization, said. “The facility is ready now to go into operation.”
Hildebrandt explained that several renovations to the old building preceded the current building layout. After years of renovations, in December 2018, leaders submitted a building application for a completely new structure. Construction began a few months later.
