Sprösslinge Montessori nursery

Dear parents, dear interested parties,
construction has been completed - the Sprösslinge Montessori nursery has been open since 1 September 2017.

Studierendenwerk Mainz already operates the Campulino (since 2011, six groups) and Weltentdecker (since 2012, five groups) day care centers. With Sprösslinge, we are expanding our services to 249 places, 123 thereof for children under the age of three.

Sprösslinge is a Montessori nursery. More information on the concept can be found here (crèche groups at “Sprösslinge" Montessori nursery) or here (kindergarten groups at “Sprösslinge“ Montessori nursery).

We can take care of up to 90 children aged between 12 months and until they go to school at this day care center. This is on the condition that at least one parent is enrolled at either the university or the university of applied sciences or is employed by one of our partners. Our partners are Johannes-Gutenberg-University, Mainz University of Applied Sciences, Max-Planck-Institute for Chemistry and Polymer Research and the Institute of Molecular Biology.

In Rhineland-Palatinate, children are free of charge after completing the age of two. Parents only pay for food and diapers.
A parental contribution depending on salary is payable for day care services for children under the age of two, which is determined by Studierendenwerk Mainz according to the guidelines of the City of Mainz. The parental contribution ranges from €31 to €530 per child and month depending on salary and number of children.

You can find a registration form here. We are happy to answer your questions in an e-mail or on the phone. Visits are possible on every last Thursday of each month.

Please call Ms. Zimmer under +49 6131/39 24890 to register.

When planning, please also take into account your child’s familiarization - the phase before your child can be at day care all day without your presence. It may take up to six weeks. Example: If your parental leave ends on 15 Oct and you wish to work full-time afterwards, the familiarization should begin by 1 Sept.
