If regular childcare is not available, Cluster members can use the parent-child rooms on the ground floor of Orléans-Ring 10. One of the rooms is equipped with a workspace. Parents can work here while the little ones play in the children's room next door. On fixed dates during the week, experienced babysitters look after the children, which range in age from babies to primary school students. In addition, the scientists can book this service if required. Any participants of conferences put on by the Cluster can also use the childcare for their children.
There is also another children's room at the department (Einsteinstr. 62, ground floor). It is equipped with toys, baby changing facility and a workspace.
