The Kinderladen

At the Kinderladen, children of students can be looked after by the hour from the end of the maternity leave period until they start school. The duration of care in Kinderladen is limited to one semester. Each child can take advantage of the childcare in the Kinderladen on 3 days of the week for 4 hours each within the opening hours. The childcare hours are generally from Monday to Thursday between 8.00 a.m. and 4.00 p.m. and Fridays 8.00 a.m. and 3.00 p.m. Earlier if required. 

Due to high demand, the Kinderladen provides caring for children of students who are not on a leave of absence (Urlaubssemester). Students on leave of absence can still register, but places are allocated primarily to students who are not on a leave of absence. Furthermore, it is required that there is no care contract between the student and a nursery or day care provider.

The children's shop is located in the Mensa am Park (upper floor). It can be reached via the entrance to the lecture hall building on the 1st floor.

A personal account

"In the middle of your studies, with the stressful final exams approaching and then during the doctoral studies - there is no 'right' time for children.  They are a gift. We were allowed to share our happiness with the team of the Kinderladen, with whom we always knew they were in good hands. When registration deadlines were approaching, a paper needed some finishing touches, or we simply couldn't think clearly anymore between shopping, changing diapers, and warming porridge, the Kinderladen was our chance to take a breath.
At first, it was not easy to let go and entrust the girls to someone else. What will they experience? Is it okay to leave? Sometimes we left them in tears, sometimes they cried because they didn't want to go home yet. But the nursery teachers smiled at us, encouraged us, and patiently promised the girls that they would meet again soon. We grew together. Now that the children have grown, our gratitude is unbroken: Thank you for the wonderful time!"
