In cooperation with the Studierendenwerk Frankfurt am Main, the RheinMain University of Applied Sciences offers flexible childcare through Fluggi-Land Wiesbaden for all student parents who need childcare for their children on an hourly basis.

Flexible childcare steps in when the regular childcare is cancelled, meaning when

  •  the childminder/granny falls ill
  •  the kindergarten is closed
  •  the school is on holiday
  •  you are attending seminars, preparing for examinations, writing your Bachelor's thesis, ... etc.

Registration and enrolment:

Before registering and using flexible care, students must register at the FamilyCompass office or the Women's Representative. Registration is required once per semester and must be received by the 20th of the current month for use in the following month.
