Parental feedback about the vacation childcare summer 2020

We were very satisfied with the offer and the location and would register our children again next year. We appreciate that you offer care specifically when daycare centers and open all-day schools are closed in Bonn.”

– Dr. Sabine Seidel, research associate

 “As a single mother, I found the two weeks very valuable. I was reassured to know that my daughter was in good hands and had a really good time on the premises of the University sports facilities; I was able to get on with my work in peace.”

- Karin Olschewski, member of the support staff at the Institute of Agricultural Engineering
