Childcare and Schools

The Julius-Maximilians-Universität promotes the compatibility of family and career. The University offers its employees the following care services:

Family Service

In all childcare related matters the Welcome Centre 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 Campus Hubland Nord opened in November 2013 and is the JMU's central facility for the care of your children.

A total of 120 day care and kindergarten places for infants and children, starting from an age of 10 months until they start school.

Please use the central online reservation for a childcare place in the city of Würzburg. In contrast to most district kindergartens, there are no specific registration dates in the Campus-Kinderhaus. You can register your child (if capacities are available) for each new month.

All employees of Julius-Maximilians-Universität who would like to apply for a place can register online for the Campus-Kinderhaus after their employment contract has been finalised. 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.

Only 20% of the full costs of a place have to be covered by the parents’ financial contribution.

The cost per month is calculated according to the booked care time and the age of the child.

The monthly costs are:

Booking time

(on average per day)

day care place Kindergartenplace

7 - 8 hrs 386 € 196 €
8 - 9 hrs 406 € 208€
9 - 10 hrs 426 €



The state subsidy of 100€ has already been deducted from the parental fees in the kindergarten. The costs include meals (breakfast, hot lunch and afternoon snack). Early music education (in cooperation with the Deanery Music School) is also included in the cost of a kindergarten place. For more information, please refer to the concept.

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. Often a new institution must be sought after the completion of the third year of life.

Further Support Services Offered by the University

For students and junior scientists there is the possibility to apply for Campus StudiKids, which offers child care for babies and infants between 2-18 months.

 Holiday programme for up to 30 children aged 6-12 years organised by the Family Service.

The Family Service's advice centre will also be happy to help you find and arrange private childcare and equipment.
