The childminder is ill or the exam goes beyond the usual childcare hours? There are situations in which, despite the best organisation of childcare, childcare shortages arise and parents need reliable care for their child or children at short notice. In these cases, JGU has made the back-up services provided by pme Familienservice GmbH available to students and employees with children since 2009.
In the childcare in emergency and exceptional circumstances, children aged 8 weeks to 12 years inclusive can be looked after for hours or days at short notice, including evenings and weekends. All students and employees of JGU can use the emergency childcare for 3 days per year per child free of charge. Therefore, this offer cannot be used to bridge holiday periods at other childcare facilities.
