Back-up Child Care

Back-up Child Care

In co-operation with TU Darmstadt and h_da, the Studierendenwerk funds various projects that aim to facilitate the compatibility of studying and family life. For emergencies and exceptional circumstances we offer:


Ad-hoc care for children of students

Exceptional circumstances and you are having trouble to find a child care option on short notice?   Student parents can sign up their children between ages 1-12 years for child care at “Fluggis-Abenteuer-Land” on short notice.

The service

Parents who have a student ID can sign up their children for back-up child care when

  • the private primary child care is temporarily unavailable
  • the day care or kindergarten is closed
  • during school vacations
  • parents by way of exception need to study or work extra time beyond the operating hours of regular child care.

Experienced caregivers as well as a team of trainees in the field of day care, students of respective fields of study and carefully selected helpers will take care of children between ages 1-12 years in child friendly facilities (service for younger children is available upon request).

Opening hours: Monday to Friday from 06:00 to 22:00 hrs, including weekdays public holidays, year round.

Appointments to view the facility can be scheduled by phone.
