New parent-child rooms for Cluster members
The Cluster of Excellence "Mathematics Münster" now not only has a new "Common Room" but also new parent-child rooms. Cluster members can use the parents' office while the little ones play next door. At two fixed times per 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. "The service is already well used," says Dr. Anne Schindler, scientific director of the Cluster. "The parent-child rooms are important to promote the compatibility of family and career." This is one of the three structural goals of the Cluster of Excellence.
