Children and families with experiences as refugees bring out a challenge for the professionals in early childhood institutions (kindergarten). A curriculum to strengthen the competencies of early childhood teacher teams in the encounter with children and families with flight ex­periences was developed, implemented and evaluated. The article shows the objectives of this curriculum and the first evaluation results. The evaluation with qualitative and quantitative methods shows an increase of self-assessed security and competences in the pedagogical con­tact/encounter with the target group. A relevant success factor was the adaptation of the frame curriculum to the needs and situation of the specific early childhood teacher teams.
