The buildings are connected by the outside area which provides various opportunities for playing. Next to the large group rooms with the adjacent break and sleeping rooms, as well as the childproof washing rooms, there is a kids’ workshop, a gymnasium and a generously sized hall area in which children may also play. In addition, the daycare has its own kitchen,  a personnel room and an office for the director.

To register your child in the Uni-Kita Zaubergarten, 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 Zaubergarten as one of your desired daycare centers. By sending the form, the director of the Uni-Kita Zaubergarten 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 Zaubergarten 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.
