Age levels:

Children of preschool age and babies older than two months can be accommodated in theory. In practice, however, the age of admission may be higher due to high demand or waiting lists.

Opening hours:

Monday-Friday: 7.30 am - 6.30 pm
until 8.00 pm during the semester, as needed

Annual holidays:

Three weeks
(two weeks in summer, one week at Christmas)

Parental contribution:

The monthly parental contribution is calculated on the basis of gross income and familea’s calculation policy for childcare (= fixed monthly fee). This monthly fee must be paid regardless of whether the child is absent at any point during the month.


In addition to any private insurance, children are also insured by familea against accidents at the Day Care Center.
