Die Kobolde e.V.

JLU's own childcare facility Die Kobolde e.V. e.V. is an independently organised parents' association located on the JLU campus next to Philosophikum II on the edge of a wood. The daycare centre is ideal for the children of student parents, who are given preferential treatment.

  • Caters for 18 children
  • Children from 1½ to 6 years of age
  • Open from 07.30 to 16.30
  • Wholesome, vegetarian meals
  • Only children living in Giessen city area are admitted.
  • Fees:
    • Basic monthly contribution of €60 (or income-related)
    • Membership fee (each year) €50
    • Meal allowance (each month) €15
    • Commitment to help supervise children, renovate premises, etc

The group comprises children of various ages according to the family grouping concept. The children can learn from each other together in the group. For the concept to work, children should - if possible - remain in the group until they start school.

The children eat breakfast and lunch together; fruit is offered in the afternoons. Parents are responsible for preparing lunch. The group has spacious rooms, an attractive garden and play area and is located right next to a wood.

The group is managed and organised by the parents themselves, which means that a certain amount of participation is expected of parents. Although it means additional work (parents are usually required to cook, shop, clean and look after the children every four to six weeks), this kind of initiative allows parents to follow their children's development more intensively than at regular day nurseries and to gain profound awareness of their social environment while they are at the day nursery.
