Child daycare

Children are simply wonderful. They make our lives richer and more complete and they need our help in order to be able to do this. Making sure they are in good hands starts with the best daycare possible. The chosen schemes are as individual as the families that need them: A childminder, an au pair girl, or may be a day-care facility for children from 6 moths old? What is the situation with “Leih-Opas and Omas“ (‘Borrowed Grandparents’) in Heidelberg?

Since 1994 the DKFZ has sponsored the daycare center “Die Wichtel” and since 2011 also the facility “Glückskinderwelt”. Through the continuous expansion of both daycare centers, we have been able since 2013 to offer a total of 70 daycare slots for the children of DKFZ employees. By this measure the DKFZ wants to support its employees in their endeavor to balance family life and work.

In addition to these offers there are other options for childcare. Please find more information on these questions in the documents below (only in German). If you have any further question, please contact our equal opportunities representative.

Daycare during vacation

Where to take your child when school, kindergarten or KiTa is closed due to vacation? Luckily there are various vacation programs provided in Heidelberg and its surrounding area (see links below).

For tax reasons (keyword “cash value advantage”) the DKFZ cannot subsidize external vacation programs. The DKFZ itself partly offers a vacation program like it did, for example, during the Whitsun breaks in 2012 and 2013. For the summer break in 2014 supervised activities are also planned.

Unfortunately, the following information is also only available in German.
