Childcare at the Max-Planck-Institutes in Heidelberg
The MPG has a contract with pme Familienservice GmbH, a service provider which supports employees with combining family life with a career. The company advises employees on childcare options for children aged 0 to 14 years; emergency and back-up child care; and elderly care possibilities. The agency's service is free for MPG employees, although they have to pay for the care costs themselves.
