Child Care and Care of Relatives

Suche


The University is very aware of the problems women academics face when juggling the constraints of both childcare and career demands and is at pains to help them to combine the two successfully and, in particular, to encourage more academics to take the step of parenthood.

This involves providing a comprehensive range of care options that are specially tailored to meet the particular needs of University and University Hospital employees and students. In addition to regular childcare provision either for whole days or part-time (see below), we offer the following services:

  • Holiday supervision, which is enjoying increasing popularity among working parents and their children;
  • Emergency care for children and family members in times of work-related difficulties;
  • A babysitting service to support parents at university to juggle the demands of studies and the care of their children;
  • A conference service to provide childcare to enable students, employees and also external guests to attend conferences, congresses and similar academic events at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg.

Childcare for the children of students:
There are currently 53 childcare places in Nuremberg and 24 in Erlangen available to parents who are studying.
In order to qualify for a place in a day nursery, the following conditions must be met:

  • Membership of the respective parent association
  • Active participation by the parents in the parent association
  • Children aged between 12 months and three years
  • At least one parent must be enrolled at an institute of higher education in Bavaria

Each individual day nursery is responsible for processing applications for a childcare place. Please contact the respective day nursery for further information. As a general rule: childcare places are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis with a waiting list.

 

Childcare for the children of University and University Hospital Employees:
The University currently offers employees of the University a total of 38 childcare places for children aged between six months and three years. Of these, 18 places are available for academic employees, a further 18 places for non-academic employees, and 2 places for the children of employees involved in the ‘Initiative for Excellence’.
