Child care centres

U3-child care centres of SWFR

We, the Studierendenwerk Freiburg, give the children in our daycare centers the space to develop, to discover themselves and the world, and to feel safe and protected from the very beginning. We see ourselves as a university service provider whose primary task is to improve the general conditions of your studies. That is why we support you in balancing your studies, career and family. It is our concern to accompany your child on its individual development path. We want to support you as a family in a spirit of partnership and care for your children with full commitment.

The "Wolkengarten" daycare center accepts children from the age of three months. The daycare center "Wolkengarten" is a joint daycare center of the university, the university hospital and the Studierendenwerk Freiburg. The daycare center is run by the Jugendhilfswerk Freiburg e.V. As the Studierendenwerk, we offer space for a group of ten toddlers (from three months to three years). Registration takes place directly with the management of the facility.

Our dedicated and qualified staff offers the children a varied daily routine with targeted offers, projects and varied free play. In an atmosphere of security and trust, your child will receive the best possible support in its personal development. It is very important to us that your child settles in well and feels comfortable in the daycare center.

Our caregivers are always available and want to work with you to create an atmosphere in which your child feels safe and secure. Ten children at a time are cared for by two professionals who are supported by additional helpers. The directors can concentrate fully on their organizational tasks and are released for this purpose. More information about our pedagogical work can be found in our pedagogical concept (see info box on the right).
