Students who have children have to face special challenges. Generally their children are under three years and day care for this age group is especially rare. However, to find adequate day care is for most parents an essential condition for the success of their studies.
About 5 percent of german and 11 percent of international students are parents. The Studentenwerke support them in their task to master child education and study by providing day care facilities. 54 Studentenwerke offer child care in more than 180 kindergartens - even for children aged less than one year. Opening hours, location and educational concepts of these day care facilities thereby are aimed to meet the specific needs of studying parents.
