The Research Academy Leipzig, in cooperation with the family service of Leipzig University, offers its members childcare services for children up to three years of age at two centres. The day-care centres are located at Straße des 18. Oktober 19, at Tarostraße 9 and at Philipp-Rosenthal-Straße 4, and are open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. The two facilities have space for 20 children and are staffed with 4 childcare workers.
Childcare workers at the facilities are subject to the provisions of the Youth Welfare Office and are regularly evaluated by that office. The cost of childcare is in accordance with the rates established by the city of Leipzig.
