Flexible childcare at TUM

Parents can often be faced with a dilemma when they fall ill or if they need to go somewhere at short notice outside of regular care hours. We are here to help with the following flexible childcare services.

Children’s and family rooms located in the faculties offer (expectant) mothers and fathers with children a place to relax or get some work done. If required (in case of appointments or lectures outside regular care hours, for example), flexible childcare is offered in some of these rooms. See the following faculty websites for more information:

You are looking for flexible childcare and want to find a suitable babysitter or a suitable day nanny? The Technische Universität München wants to support you in this matter in cooperation with HalloBabysitter.de.

HalloBabysitter.de is one of the biggest job exchange providers for babysitters and day nannies in the German speaking region with 15 years of experience in the recruitment of childcare professionals. On this platform you can find babysitters or day nannies according to your individual needs (i.e. home address, emergency care, language skills etc.) or just offer a babysitter position yourself.

Please ask the team of the TUM Kids, Family and Elder Care Center for the login data for your babysitter.de premium account that will be paid by TUM Familyservice. You live/ work in Weihenstephan and are looking for a babysitter? Then Babysitterservice Weihenstephan might be the right choice for you.

To support TUM staff and students trying to balance their career or study with family commitments, TUM Familyservice offers to arrange emergency childcare within 24 hours via the R.U.F. agency in the Munich and Garching area (see advice on arranging emergency care – link below). TUM Familyservice covers the cost of arranging the childcare in the amount of approx. €200 per case and the parents cover the cost of €13-15/hour for the caretaker.

If you have to attend a work- or study-related event outside of regular childcare hours and need to arrange a babysitter, you can also try Hallobabysitter.de (for access data, contact TUM Familyservice) or contact the Weihenstephan babysitter service.
