Daycare Services

In the uni daycare centre Uni-Kita Blütengarten, children between 1 and 3 years of age are cared for. The supervision of a child under one year of age is possible in exceptional cases and after individual consultation. If you are interested in this option, please contact the daycare director.

The daycare has 10 full-day spots. Daycare times are from Monday to Friday from 8:00-18:00.

The daycare is closed on a total of 29 days of the year (for Easter or Whit holiday, during the summer and for Christmas).

Drop-off and Pick-up Times

In order to ensure an organised daily schedule, the children should typically be in the daycare centre at 9:15 and be picked up by 17:50. If possible, they should not be picked up during the after-lunch break (approx. 12:30 to 14:30).

Rooms and Garden

The Uni-Kita Blütengarten is located in a building of the Faculty of Biology. It offers generous and nicely furnished rooms. There is a large group room, a sleeping room, an all-purpose room and a bath room with a changing table and a small children’s toilet. The daycare centre also has an office, a personnel room and a kitchen.

In the group room, there is a built-in second level, offering the children various stimuli for movement and different haptic, optical and spatial impressions. The group room and sleeping room offer opportunities for quiet time, such as cuddling corners, dens and mattresses. The walls have been painted with child-appropriate and calming colours.

The closely located Botanical Gardens are available to the children for playing and discovering. In addition, we have a playground especially set up for the daycare centre, containing small hills, a slide, a bird’s nest swing, a sandbox, climbing opportunities and flower beds for planting.

Educational Principles

The fundamental components of the pedagogical work are described on our webpage "Pedagogical concept"

Detailed information about the daycare center and the pedagogical concept can be found in the Educational Concept.

Spot Assignment

In order to get a spot at the Uni-Kita Blütengarten, one of the child’s parents must be active as a scientist (or in a non-scientific area with comparable work conditions) at the Faculty of Biology. The partner must also be employed or in training, and the family has to be in need of full-day care.
You can find more detailed information on the acceptance conditions here.

Parents who do not meet these requirements may enter the waiting list, and will be considered with a reduced priority.

Spot allocation takes place in an assignment committee with the involvement of the Faculty of Biology and the university’s staff council.

To register your child in the Uni-Kita Blütengarten, please complete the following two steps: 

1. In order to enroll your child in any Kita in Freiburg you need to follow the central registration procedure by the city of Freiburg. This applies also to the Kitas of the university. The following website by the Office for children, youth and families of the Freiburg city administration will guide you through the registration procedure (German only). On this website, you can access the registration form (German only) on which you can specify up to three daycare centers. Please enter the Uni-Kita Blütengarten as one of your desired daycare centers. By sending the form, the director of the Uni-Kita Blütengarten will be notified automatically. 

The websites of the city of Freiburg as well as the form for the central registration are in German only. If this is inconvenient for you, we offer you the registration form in English.

2. In addition to registering your child through the city’s central registration system, your employment status with the Universität Freiburg is needed in order to allocate the daycare spots. As soon as the director of the Uni-Kita Blütengarten receives the registration notification by the city, she will send you an email with the link to a form on your employment relationship with the Universität Freiburg. 

Please note that we can only consider enrollment applications for which you completed the city registration and sent the form on your employment status. 

Most of the free spots are allocated at the beginning of a new kindergarten year in September. In order to get a spot at this point, you need to be registered in the central registration system of the city of Freiburg by the end of February of the same year. If you need to start childcare at a time other than September, you also have to register with the central system and you should do so as soon as possible. In this case please be prepared for a longer waiting period, since there are only a few spots left to be awarded after September.
