The child­care offer is intended for those who would like to have their child cared for by pedago­gical special­ists on a need-based and hourly basis. A total of twelve places are avail­able. Of these, nine places can be booked online, three emer­gency places can only be booked by telephone.

The Flexi building is located in a 30 km/h speed zone in the imme­diate vicinity of the univer­sity on the “Adolf-Reich­­wein” campus and is connected to the Kita building. The large outdoor area of the day care centre with its own natural forest plot is also used by the Flexi children.

In Flexi, the chil­dren are given the right balance between guided and free play.

  • an indi­vidu­ally designed settling-in phase with the involve­ment of the parents,

  • celeb­ra­tions with chil­dren and parents,
  • a parents’ corner with inform­a­tion material.
