Wrap-around childcare is available for all pupils in years 1-4. Children are supervised every day before and after lessons from 7:30 am - 5:00 pm. This childcare programme provides a good balance of recurring sessions which include lunch, homework supervision and specially designed activities. The children also have plenty of free time — after a morning at school they need leisure time to gather strength, as well as stimulation and time to play. The wrap-around childcare programme is available to children during term-time.
Childcare services are only available on school days. Childcare is not offered on floating holidays, such as, for example, the Fridays after the Ascension Day and Corpus Christi holidays. In particular instances, there may also be no childcare on in-service training days (e.g. teacher training days).
During the holidays, reliable childcare is available through our holiday club. We work in specially equipped group rooms with the option of also using classrooms and labs. Our concept relies on close collaboration with the schools. In the academic year 2014/15, 528 children in Heidelberg were registered for wrap-around childcare at 12 primary schools.
