Offers for parents and children

Holiday care

The Technical University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt maintains cooperations at both its locations, Würzburg and Schweinfurt, for holiday care for the children of employees.

Further information can be found in the Intranet (in German).

Babysitting platform at THWS

THWS has established a babysitting platform for its members.

This platform aims to enable parents to find babysitting offers for single occasions or for regular sitting, e.g. for appointments, lectures, exams, unforeseeable events.
This offer supports students with child(ren) in successfully completing their studies in a reasonable time period. Another aim is to support employees in bridging gaps in childcare. The babysitting platform also wants to offer external scientists more flexibility when organising childcare during conferences and meetings.

For additional information and to use the babysitting platform, please see the Intranet.

People interested in babysitting can also find information on how to become part of our babysitter pool in the Intranet.

"Bring your child"-day at THWS

On the Day of Prayer and Repentance Bavarian schools are closed. Thus, many parents need to arrange for alternative child care. THWS rids its employees of this problem by offering a “bring-your-child”-day for children from 1st grade.

At the locations in Würzburg and Schweinfurt, a diverse programme is offered to children from 8:00 to 16:00. The children are not only cared for well but they also get the chance to get to know their parents’ place of work.

More detailled information on the next “bring-your-child”-day can be found in the Intranet.

Facilities for breastfeeding and nappy changing

At THWS, there are rooms in which parents with children and pregnant women can relax. For more information on these facilities, please see rooms and support offers.
