Service for Staff

Once employed by us, many advantages await you: the day care center on campus, the promotion of your health, good networks and continuous professional development.

Day Care Center

The day care center named “ganz schön frech” on the Neuherberg campus offers child care for children of Helmholtz Zentrum München employees. The babies and children, who are between eight weeks and school age, are looked after by qualified day care educators. The long opening hours, flexible booking times and the proximity to the workplace at the Neuherberg location make it possible to better reconcile work with family responsibilities. The day care center is run under the auspices of AWO Kreisverband München-Land e.V.
