Home / Childcare / Childcare at the universities in Giessen / KIWIS daycare centre run by Giessen Student Services

KIWIS daycare centre run by Giessen Student Services / Studentenwerk Gießen A.d.ö.R.

The KIWIS daycare centre opened its doors at Alter Steinbacher Weg 34 on 1 October 2009. This supplementary childcare service is offered to the children of Justus-Liebig-Universität and Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen students living in the city or surrounding districts.

The centre caters for 20 children aged between ten months and three years. They are looked after by six educational experts and one social work volunteer.

Both children and their parents feel at home in the centre's bright, modern and friendly rooms on the Cultural and Social Sciences (Phil I) campus. A large outdoor area offers children plenty of space to play and enjoy exercise in the fresh air. The centre provides all-day care:

Opening hours:
Mon - Thu 07.30 - 18.15 (Aug./Sept 07.30 - 17.00)
Fri 07.30 - 14.30

We also offer:

  • a settling-in concept that takes account of bonding principles
  • cooperation with parents
  • reliable and well-integrated caregivers
  • an atmosphere that makes the children feel safe and secure
  • rest and quiet areas
  • emphasis on games and physical exercise
  • an environment that encourages children to explore and try out new things
  • practising rituals
  • support for language development
  • encouraging the child's awareness of his/her own body
  • establishing social contacts
  • free lunch

KIWIS is a pilot daycare project

As the provider of the daycare centre, Student Services cooperates closely with the Childhood Education department headed by Prof. Dr. Norbert Neuss. The aim of the project is to link the two primary education degrees (BA in Early Childhood Education and MA in Inclusive and Elementary Education) with educational practice in primary schools. Young school-age children learn alongside the older students. For example, students try out observation procedures in the centre or work as assistant teachers. KIWIS staff, on the other hand, have an opportunity to obtain scholarly advice. Many other joint activities are planned.

Admission requirements

  • Children of Justus-Liebig-Universität and Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen students living in Giessen or surrounding districts are eligible.
  • Children must be between 10 months and 3 years (intake age no older than 24 months).
  • Places are allocated places by the order in which applications are received. Priority is given to single parents and parents who are both students.
  • Children are only eligible for a place in the centre as long as one of their two parents is enrolled at one of Giessen's two universities. That is why a valid enrolment certificate must be presented each new semester.
  • The care regulations of the city of Giessen are applicable.
