Counter to the Constitution
Spiegel reports the board of the Kinderhäusl was composed entirely of Scientologists. Munich's Education Department was reportedly informed of the issue by the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution within weeks of the school's opening.

They really do like to get 'em while they're young, don't they?
A recruit is a recruit, I suppose.

If I understand correctly, the "Scientology Organization" is banned in Germany. This being the case, the kindergarten might be construed as a way to operate without attracting the attention of the authorities.
I don't typically have a lot of warmth in my heart for Germany (remember Teutoburg!), but I like their "I can't describe it for you, but I'll know it when I see it" approach to this particular cult.
