Around 5% of students in Heidelberg are parents. Since the end of the 1960s, the Heidelberg student union has offered all-day childcare to make sure that their children are well looked after whilst their parents are busy concentrating in lectures. Children in Heidelberg receive loving care starting from 8 months to school age; in Heilbronn until they are 3. The amount parents pay monthly is graded, in all daycares, according to gross income. You can find application forms in the ServiceCenter, from daycare managers on-site, at nursery management or online on the homepage.
