FlexiKids at KinderUniversum

In order to provide even better support for all our employees and students in reconciling work or studies and family, the FlexiKids program was designed to support parents with emergency care to bridge the gaps in the childcare.

The emergency care takes place in our daycare center KinderUniversum in Karl-Wilhelm-Str. 1, 76131 Karlsruhe. There are a total of 5 emergency care places available for children from 6 months to 12 years, which can usually be used for a maximum of 3 days in a row.

For emergency care, please bring along: A change of clothes, your child's favorite toy and possibly diapers/baby food.

When can FlexiKids be used?

FlexiKids can be used by our employees, doctoral candidates, and students of KIT in case of

  • emergency situations at the jon,
  • gaps in regular childcare,
  • short-term business trips,
  • events at KIT.

Emergency care is not a substitute for daycare during vacations. For this purpose, KIT offers schoolchild care care during all school vacations.

FlexiKids for events
