Current information


tudying with a child

In the sponsorship of two day-care centers for children, the Studierendenwerk provides the necessary infrastructure as part of reliable all-day care for children under the age of three, which is indispensable for the compatibility of family, studies and work.

When registering, please note that we only give full-day care places to students and university staff at Philipps-University

As a cooperation partner of the Philipps University, we support the students of the Philipps University as a competent service company close to the university with a social mandate and make a significant contribution to the implementation of equal opportunities, promotion and support of families. Our care offer should enable a degree or a scientific training with a child without further interruptions, because students with children are often in constant conflict between study requirements and the care needs of their child. Due to the multiple burden of studying, having children and, in some cases, employment, student parents in particular need the framework of reliable all-day care that is also available.





The rooms are distributed at ground level and barrier-free: five group and relaxation rooms with their own changing and sanitary areas and a movement turf with separate access to the garden as well as a spacious hallway offer plenty of space and play facilities in the all-day facility. Sufficient pesonal and parents' room, a cooking kitchen and a management office are also available. A storage room for the parents' strollers can be found in the outbuilding.

Outdoor Facilities

The Uni- Kita Am Schwanhof 66 has a spacious outdoor area that can be reached from each of the group rooms on the ground floor with its own garden access. The large garden with sandpits, swings, a slide, a pirate ship and much more surround the building, which was newly constructed in 2014. The music school, theater and good connections to well-developed footpaths along the Lahn are very close by. The garden is available to the children as a safe space to experience and supports the children's natural urge to move and enables a variety of exercise experiences.

Care offer

The day care center offers 50 full-day places in mixed-age groups. The children between the ages of six months and three years are cared for by specialist staff. We encourage the child to develop into an independent and socially responsible personality. This task includes the education, upbringing and care of the children, whereby the offer is pedagogically and organizationally oriented towards the needs and life situations of the children and parents. Through situation and experience-oriented work, the children are offered a variety of possibilities and suggestions in their everyday life. In mixed-age, manageable groups, the day-care center enables a family-complementary living space and social world of experience for small children. Life in the day-care center is characterized by respect for the child’s individuality, security, acceptance and continuity, in a stimulating and well-structured learning environment for day-care children. Everyday day-to-day daycare is based on recurring rhythms and elements in the daily routine, which is deliberately structured. There are fixed sleeping and eating times, stable caregivers that the children need in order to gain trust, inner security and orientation. In an atmosphere of security, children are accompanied in their individual development by motivated specialists in close cooperation with their parents. Good cooperation between carers and parents is important to us in the interests of the children; In particular, parents should actively help shape their child's acclimatization phase and gain insight into day-to-day day-to-day life. In the course of the internationalization of the course, the day-care center will become a meeting place for children and parents from different countries and cultures.
