Flexible Childcare Services

There are times in life when flexible (creative) solutions for situations involving children are required. Whether you wish to invite guest lecturers to Graz who have to, or want to take their younger or older children with them (during school term or days off school), or you need a reliable babysitter or childminder for more or less regular free afternoons or evenings … there are many more flexible and on-demand options available to you than meet the eye.

 

Managerial staff – what you need to know

  • Do you wish to invite (foreign language) guest lecturers to Graz who have already indicated their need for childcare services ahead of their stay?
     
  • Are you preparing an (international) conference or congress to which you would like to invite potential participants who might not be able to respond because of care obligations they need to fulfil? Possibly, you could be addressing an even larger target group if you provide on-site childcare.
     
  • unikid & unicare informs and supports you when planning childcare for conference participants.

  • Are you expecting employees for one or two semesters at your institute who, in view of their family care responsibilities, have requested specific information on childcare or schooling possibilities ahead of their stay?
     
  • Are there plans to re-enter to the workplace, which would require a solution with flexible or marginal working hours?
     
  • unikid & unicare searches for and informs you about suitable and hourly childcare provisions in addition to, or in place of a family network. As a support measure for work-family balance, the University of Graz subsidises flexible childcare services.
