Leibniz Kids

On behalf of the Leibniz University, the Leibniz Kids day care centre of pme Family Services provides up to 30 regular child care places and 12 back-up places on their premises at Herrenhäuser Straße 2. Opening hours depend on the working hours of employed and student parents.

Regular day care: There are two fixed nursery groups of up to 15 children from two months to three years. The children are cared for Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. The majority of places are offered publicly and allocated according to the criteria of the city of Hanover. In addition, there are special quotas for employees and/or students of Leibniz Universität.

Back-up care: Additionally, the Leibniz Kids day care centre offers back-up care for up to 12 children aged 0 to 12 years to all Leibniz Universität employees and students. Back-up care supports parents flexibly in all kinds of shortage or emergency situations such as a sick babysitter/day nanny, or crucial learning or examination times. Children can be cared for on short notice for hours or even days. If parents need the emergency care for study- or work-related reasons, the costs are paid for by the Leibniz Universität.
