Intercultural day-care center at Campus Garching
The day-care center offers places for 58 children of TUM-students and staff. Currently, there are families from 18 countries at the facility, which is operated by the Munich Student Union and the support association “Studentische Eltern-Kind-Initiativen e.V.“.
As part of the “Frühe Chancen” program, the day care team provides language training and intercultural educational for the under-three-year-olds. “Frühe Chancen” is an initiative of the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth.
Country theme weeks
In small teams, the daycare professionals also focus on intercultural integration work. In autumn of 2014, the Ingeborg Ortner Kinderhaus started a sewing project in which the families crafted blankets with typical features representing their ethnicity, religion and cultural identity. Also, there are plans to organize theme weeks in which the families will introduce themselves with photos or videos and their traditional cuisine, to make integration come alive.

The Ingeborg Ortner Kinderhaus has places for children from the age of 1 year and in the kindergarten for over-three-year-olds available.
