Weimar for the summer

I am going to be working in Weimar, Germany for 3 months this summer. I would appreciate any advice from people who have temporarily relocated their families to the region. A few pertinent details inside.

I don't speak German, however I spent a couple of months (solo) in Cologne a few years ago. This time my daughter, who turned 1 at the end of January, will be coming with me; her father will be with us for some (as yet unspecified) part of the time.
The academic center where I'll be working has arranged for a daycare for my daughter, but as I am not familiar with German childcare norms I am not sure what to expect (e.g. here in my U.S. city, kids routinely come to daycare when they have non-feverish colds. I have no idea whether such practices are tolerated in Germany.)
As we are an interracial family I am also interested in learning about the experiences of other interracial families and/or people of color.
