Emergency childcare - Notfallmamas

  • When there is a need for mom or dad...

    University staff with children face great challenges if a child becomes sick or regular childcare is not available, especially when an important appointment is coming up at work.


    To support our employees in such situations, we have been offering a childcare service through the Notfallmamas (Emergency Mamas) since October 2019.

The Die Notfallmamas GmbH emergency childcare service is aimed at all staff members of the University of Bremen with children between the ages of zero and twelve. 

  • short-term childcare by qualified childcare workers from the Notfallmamas service

  • coverage of the costs of childcare

  • sickness of the child
  • short-term unforeseen lack of regular childcare 
  • unforeseen extra work (covering for colleagues on sick leave or similar) 
  • important work obligation
  • meeting, lecture, research assignment, etc.
  • no possibility of replacement

In most cases, the childcare provided by your employer is not relevant for tax purposes (especially if there is a corporate need).  However, this applies to a maximum of 14 hours per year.

It is also possible that the childcare provided is regarded as capital-forming benefit. You are welcome to make inquires to the responsible contact person beforehand. 

1. Complete and send this registration form to notfallmamasprotect me ?!uni-bremenprotect me ?!.de.
The application for childcare must be made no later than 3 p.m. on the day before the needed care. 

2. Within a few hours, the employee will receive feedback regarding whether childcare can be realized. 

3. The Notfallmamas will send a qualified nanny to the desired address where the childcare is to take place. 

Further information is available on the company website: Notfallmamas

    Die Notfall-Mama Karin war sehr nett und meine Kinder haben die zwei Tage mit ihr genossen.

    Ich kann die Notfall-Mamas guten Gewissens weiterempfehlen!
