LMU Family Service

LMU wants to support its staff as much as possible when it comes to reconciling work and family life. With this in mind, we work together with the pme Familienservice GmbH (pme Family Service) — a national service provider — to offer consultation and childcare support. Qualified specialists advise and arrange individual childcare solutions.

What kind of childcare services does the Family Service provide?

The search for a suitable childcare solution requires a lot of time and experience. Quite often, it's not having the right contacts that slow things down and make a reliable solution hard to find. The pme Familienservice helps you to work out a solution tailored to your personal situation — proposed after an individual consultation.

Possible options include; childminders, childcare professionals working in the private household, emergency care in the event of illness of the child/carer or parents, babysitters, au pairs, private kindergartens and parent schemes, crèches, day-care centers, after-school care, and holiday programs.

In addition to personal counseling, you can use various services (day-care center database, information on relevant presentations, chat counseling, etc.)

Back-up support

In emergency and exceptional situations (e.g. in case of your carer being ill or your regular facility being closed) you can have your child/children aged 0 to 12 years looked after, free of charge, in the pme Familienservice GmbH back-up institution. The annual care quota per family is 30 days.

In-house holiday programs

In cooperation with pme Familienservice GmbH, the LMU offers an in-house holiday program hosted on site. These take place during the Whitsun and summer holidays and additionally during the Easter holidays if these fall within the lecture period.

The pme Familienservice holiday program

The pme Familienservice GmbH offers a wide range of holiday programs to staff within the framework of the cooperation agreement with LMU. Just some of the activities on offer include hiking in the Kaiser Mountains, English-speaking riding, detective or journalist camps for young people, dance workshops as well as digital photography and fashion camps.

Childcare for LMU conferences and congresses

Having your children looked after whilst you attend conferences, workshops and meetings plays and important role in the act of balancing professional and private needs. In cooperation with pme Familienservice GmbH, The Office for Equality and Inclusion supports LMU institutions to provide a tailored and professional range of childcare services.

Academy: Lectures, seminars and webinars

Keeping up despite a pressured workload, nursing a family member at home, attending to your own personal needs: It must be possible to do all three. A range of German-language lectures, workshops and seminars available to LMU staff are dedicated to exactly these areas.

LMU staff can find further information on the Family Service in the service portal (protected access).
