Good childcare is essential for reconciling family responsibilities and a successful study or academic career.
Do you need childcare? According to SGB VIII (Child and Youth Welfare Act), you are entitled to a childcare place for your child from the age of 1.
Here you can find out more about your options and the relevant service and contact points.

In a personal meeting, we will be happy to advise you on existing offers at the university and support you in your search for suitable care.

Servicestelle Kinderbetreuung und Kindertagespflege

(Kopie 2)

Die  Servicestelle Kinderbetreuung und Kindertagespflege provides an overview of the childcare services offered in day care and by private childcare providers in the Saarbrücken Regional Association. For more than 10 years, day care has been a legally recognised family-like form of care and is equivalent to care in a day care centre.
You can use a map view to search for day care or childcare providers with free capacities.
In most cases, it is possible to contact the caregivers directly. However, in order to find a suitable and individual placement, it makes sense to contact the staff of the Childcare & Day Care Service Centre.
