The Family Service of Goethe University will be pleased to help you organise places for your children in day care centres or nurseries. Please note that all employees of Goethe University should enroll their children through the Family Service.

Westend Campus

The child day care at Campus Westend hosts 44 children aged from one through seven. The rooms are generously equipped with particular play and work equipment (for example creativity room, exercise room, and role play room). The child day care team's goal, as they perceive it, is to provide an atmosphere where the child feels comfortable and secure, where the child can develop. The children are given the opportunity to be independent researchers and explorers. Furthermore, they have the opportunity to find a balance between peace and quiet and interaction with other children and independent activities. In a familiar environment, emotional, social, and cognitive development is enhanced so that the children can understand the world they live in.
