Up to 23 children are looked after in the elementary groups and 13 in the crib groups.
Two staff members are responsible for each group. Every so often, there are additional trainees, gap year students or volunteers.
If we have availability, we generally inform you in the Latest Info section.
Otherwise, every day care centre management will gladly provide you with information on current and future availability.
Each facility has a waiting list, which is consulted as soon as a position becomes available.
Healthy, varied food is important to us. The Hallerstraße day care centre has its own kitchen, and the Bornstraße, KinderCampus and Die Stifte day care centres get their food from there. 80% of the meals come from organic and whole foods. The UKE day care centre lunches are supplied by the KFE (company-owned kitchen), whose dietary plan takes into account the physiological aspects, as well as pedagogical aspects, of food and nutrition. It is important for us to ensure that meals are held in a calm, pleasant atmosphere, and that children with special dietary needs are also taken into consideration.
Every morning, the children are given a freshly prepared breakfast for a fee.
All establishments have facilities allowing tired children to get some rest. Each centre has little niches, corners and other places of retreat as part of its design. The crib groups have a compulsory midday nap.
All groups go out into the fresh air with the children as much as possible. Each facility has its own outdoor grounds.
All the day care centres run by the Hamburg Student Union have argued in favour of the day care centre bridging year (formerly pre-school at the day care centre). The future school students are prepared for primary school as part of regular activities, particularly focusing on further developing social, material and learning skills.
For this semester, you can have your child looked after for two or four hours on this particular weekday only; that’s precisely what the "Casper" campus playgroup is there for. Every weekday from 4pm to 8pm, the children of students and university staff are lovingly looked after by the educational specialists at the Kindercampus day care centre.
