Childcare and Schools
Childcare facilities at Julius Maximilian University
In all childcare related matters the Welcome Center collaborates closely with the University’s Family Service.The staff of the Family Service can advise you on childcare provisions both on campus and in Wuerzburg. They will assist you with finding an appropriate place in a daycare centre or kindergarten for your children and can put you in touch with registered childminders and babysitters.
The “Campus-Kinderhaus” at Hubland Campus opened in November 2013 and provides 36 new daycare centre places for toddlers under three as well as 25 kindergarten places for children of the age three to six. The Family Service tries to make sure that children attending the daycare centre also get the opportunity to stay at the “Campus-Kinderhaus” when they turn three and do not have to change the facility. Not all daycare centres in Würzburg can make this offer. In contrast to the various kindergartens in different neighbourhoods, there are no fixed registration deadlines for the “Campus-Kinderhaus”. You can apply for a place every month. Only 20% of the full costs of a place have to be covered by the parents’ financial contribution.
All employees of Julius Maximilian University who like to apply for a place can register online for the Campus-Kinderhaus after their employment contract has been finalized. Even if you did not receive your contract yet, please register with the Family Service early on to avoid long waiting times. The Family Service will get in touch with you when any childcare places are available.
On payment of a small fee, the Family Service, furthermore, offers flexible part time childcare at the “Zwergenstube” for children from the second month of life. Moreover, the staff members organize holiday programmes for children from six to twelve and can put you in contact with student babysitters.
You can also contact the Welcome Center first for questions concerning childcare.
