For children of University members and employees resident outside Tübingen there are 17 childcare places (called KiKo places) for children between the ages of 1 and 6 at the Mauerstraße, Feuerhägele, and Ahornweg kindergartens, run by the city of Tübingen.
There are further options for childcare with privately-run and municiple-administered facilities. Privately-run facilities include those administered e.g. by the churches, parent initiatives, and company-run kindergartens.
