Parent-child rooms

The parent-child rooms are meant to bridge gaps in child care, for instance if the kindergarten is closed in summer, if the child minder is not available or if grandparents or friends cannot help out.

You can use the rooms for working or reading, while your child is playing or sleeping, or to change, nurse or feed your child in peace and quiet.

The rooms do not constitute an alternative child care facility but an important step towards a better compatibility of studying, job and family.

The parent-child rooms are equipped with a computer that has internet access, a desk and an office chair, children’s furniture, toys, children’s books, paper and paints for drawing, a wrapping table, a sofa and a wardrobe.
