Vacation childcare

Childcare during vacations contributes to the balance between work/study and family life. In addition to the university's own vacation care during the Easter, summer and fall vacations, the city of Bonn offers a varied vacation program.

Vacation childcare in summer 2020 - parental feedback

“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
