In the 'Zwergenstübchen' there is currently room for a maximum of nine children - and in case of a real emergency for one additional child – from the age of 8 months to 3 years, who are given stimulating care in a child-friendly environment.
While we are for example playing with the children or looking at a book with them, the parents can attend a lecture, go to work, or take care of other things without having to worry.
Childcare can be booked for 10 to 35 hours a week per half-year/semester.
From a pedagogical point of view, daily half-day care is preferable. In this way, the child experiences a structured, recurring daily routine and thus gains security and self-confidence.
The facility is open from Monday to Friday with core hours from 7.30 a.m. to 4 p.m. In individual cases, a special agreement can be made for the care of a child outside the core hours. The children’s nap time, which must also be respected by the parents, is between 12 and 2 p.m. The centre is closed four weeks a year. The exact dates will be announced in good time.
The childcare fee is collected on the first of each month by direct debit. The hourly rate is currently: For students 3 € (per hour or part thereof); For other parents 5 € (per hour or part thereof). The set fee is to be paid in full in any case. A reduction is also not permitted for days on which the child does not visit our centre during the booked day-care hours and the term of the contract. In addition, lunch can be booked for € 2,50 per day if you do not wish to provide your own food. The costs for catering will be collected together with the childcare fee on the first of each month by direct debit.
Basically you can register your child at any time, depending on the occupancy rate of the facility, and you should do so at least 14 days in advance. At the moment, however, it is difficult to find places at short notice due to the high demand for childcare in Münster. Places usually become available in summer. Please register in time, we keep a waiting list. If you are offered a place, make sure to take the time for your child to settle in and to become familiar with the new environment.
