Criteria for the allocation of places

The following criteria apply:

  1. Priority will be given to parents who are both students and to single parents (after having handed in document regarding sole custody). We proceed according to the date on the waiting list.
  2. Further criteria for certain childcare centres:
    In the following childcare centres, students of certain universities are given priority:
    1. Unikleckse (LMU)
    2. Pünktchen und Anton (HFF)
    3. Herzerl München (University of Applied Sciences Munich) In all three childcare centres, priority is first of all given to the universities, then criteria no. 1 applies.

Priority for siblings

Siblings are given priority on the following conditions:

  1. Siblings can only be given priority within their own category on the waiting list, i.e. if only one parent is a student, then you can skip the others on the waiting list who are also in this category even though they may have longer waiting periods, but children of single parents/ parents who are both studying will still be ahead of you on the waiting list.
  2. Both children must also be in the childcare centre at the same time for at least three months, otherwise the child cannot be considered a sibling.

Going from crèche to kindergarten in our facilities with a kindergarten

  • Crèche children in the same facility will be given priority for the kindergarten group.
  • However, parents still must have their children put onto the waiting list for the kindergarten.
  • Otherwise, the general criteria for the allocation of places applies (date on the waiting list, single parents/ both parents students).

Priority for siblings/ Going from crèche to kindergarten

  1. The additional criteria “sibling in the same facility” and “child goes to the crèche in the same facility” have the same weight.
  2. If a child meets several criteria, the family which meets most of the additional criteria will be given priority.
  3. Otherwise, the general criteria for the allocation of places applies (date on the waiting list, single parents/ both parents students).
