Childcare Tiegelkids, Campus Essen

Our childcare centre Tiegelkids on the campus in Essen offers places for ten children of between 4 months and 3 years of age.

Educational concept

We work according to the situational approach based on the pedagogy of Emmi Pikler. That means, each child is valued as it is and can develop at its own pace. We support their independence and promote their individual development.

With our offers, your children can gain basic experience and acquire skills and knowledge to meet everyday challenges. Outside our facilities we offer your children an environment that is adapted to their developmental needs and invites them to exercise and experience nature.

Great emphasis is placed on transparency in the work. This applies in particular to the many areas of experience of the children. All worries, wishes and concerns of children and parents are taken seriously.


The parental contribution is based on the income of the parents and is levied by the local youth welfare office in accordance with the KiBiZ (Children's Education Act).

+ 40,00 € for the meals


Our childcare centre is located in close proximity to the UDE campus in Essen. There is also a student residence next to the building.


For a place at "Tiegelkids" you can reserve online via the parent portal LITTLE BIRD of the city of Essen or you can contact us directly. As there is no filtering for students in the application form, we kindly ask you to contact us directly in case of a registration and / or to indicate in the application form under "Other information" that you are a student.
