In agreement with the German Red Cross, the City of Kiel has granted GEOMAR the right to reserve places for children under the age of 3 (full-time care) in daycare facilities in Kiel.
As of 1 August 2005, nine full-time places are available (6 places in the facility on Johannisburger Straße (east side of Kiel) and 3 places in the facility on Blocksberg (west side of Kiel).
Please mind the following information:
- Only children under the age of 3 can be registered;
- monthly fee for parents: current rate set by the City of Kiel;
- further care until the child reaches school age is ensured (this also applies if parents have a fixed-term contract or change employers);
- if the need is greater than the number of places available, a selection process will be carried out.
We ask that you register early so that all requests can be taken into account.
