There are two nurseries in the campuses which operate under the patronage of the Dean of Students of the Hebrew University for the benefit of parents: Mount Scopus campus and Edmond J. Safra. The nurseries enroll babies between the ages of 2 months and 10 months (from the time a baby is admitted to the nursery he can stay there until the end of the academic year). The nurseries allow mothers to arrive at any time to breastfeed. There is one nanny to every 5 babies.
You can enroll the baby for certain days (e.g., Mondays and Wednesdays regularly throughout the first semester) or on one-time basis with a notice of one day in advance.
