Kinderland (organised through the AStA [Students Union])

Kinderland is a day care option for students with children. 
The idea of Kinderland is based on the following:

  • children should be at least 6 months old
  • the care takers are students and mostly not professionally trained
  • Students can get up to 9 hours day care per week for one child (although the requested hours and numbers of children always exceed the time offers Kinderland has at hand --> get in touch asap before the start of the semester)
  • time slots for your child's day care will be individually negotiated on the basis of your preferred time slots and those on offer through Kinderland

If you are interested, you are welcome to come along to Kinderland and see.

Sportturm, Ebene 1, behind the gym
