Roundabout 90 children are taken care of and provided with meals between 7.30 and 17.30.
There are four age-mixed groups of approx.18 children. The children in these groups are 4 months to 6 years old. This group composition creates good conditions for children’s development and learning potential: The younger ones learn from the older ones and vice versa, under observation and guidance of two teachers and a nanny per group.
Before and after the primary school, the 20 children go to an after-school group, where they are provided with meals, can rest, are supervised when doing their homework or play under the guidance of 3 teachers.
With UniKids, the Ruhr University Bochum initiated a pilot project which proves to be exemplary across Germany. The idea is offering employed people and students of the Ruhr University flexible care times and modern support options "on campus”.
The UniKids project was developed in close cooperation with the Youth Welfare Office of Bochum and the State Youth Welfare Office of Westphalia-Lippe, who accompanied the conception of the day care group. In August 2010, the construction works began; in April 2012 teachers and children moved into the new building. "UniKids" takes care of around 110 children in seven groups. Opening hours: Monday to Friday from 7.00 to 20.00, core hours are from 8.00 to 17.00.
Loving care for the children of students and employees of the Bochum University of Applied Sciences from the age of two months until they enter the day care centre at the age of three.
In the nest groups of the SKFM Velbert/Heiligenhaus, the children are offered care that is as close to the family as possible. Two qualified carers accompany the children throughout the day as continuous caregivers. They are supported by a qualified child day care person as a substitute.
In 3 rooms, kitchen and bathroom with changing area there is enough space for exploring, moving, playing, resting and sleeping. The outdoor area is directly integrated into the campus. The proximity to local playgrounds and the city centre offers many opportunities to experience nature or the weekly market with the children.
