Flexible Childcare

Inadequate childcare can pose a major challenge for parents who are studying or working. This is why the University of Kassel and the Studierendenwerk Kassel offer flexible childcare arrangements for students and staff. This page provides an overview of these services.

The Flying Nannies is a free flexible childcare service for students and employees of the University of Kassel. Children of students and employees of the University of Kassel are cared for until the end of primary school age. The childcare offer serves as a supplementary offer and can therefore not replace regular childcare. It is primarily available when, due to university obligations, such as exams or other compulsory appointments, it is not possible to guarantee your own childcare. Childcare is provided on the premises of the University of Kassel as well as at the Witzenhausen location - depending on the individual needs of the parents and children.

Details about the care can be found in the General information about the flexible childcare Flying Nannies which must be read and understood prior to the childcare.

E-mails are retrieved from monday to friday (until 2pm) and thus answered promptly.

In addition to the childcare provided by the Flying Nannies in the parent-child-rooms, it is also possible to book qualified babysitters from the care pool. The babysitting pool is a childcare service that also covers times when parents do not have university obligations and is agreed upon directly between the babysitter and the parents. The university merely brings together the babysitter and the parents.
