The KiTa Quality and Participation Improvement Act is a German federal law that aims to improve participation in day care , create equivalent living conditions for children to grow up in Germany and contribute to a better work-life balance (Section 1 of the Act). In particular, it implements Articles 3, 8 and 12 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child .
The law was communicated by the federal government as the “good day care law”. The German Academy for Language and Poetry criticized the designation because such titles would combine legislative procedures with advertising strategies.
