Parent-Child RoomsFamily Services Center
What can you do when your childcare provider suddenly cancels or flexible holidays arise, but you have work you cannot postpone? What do you do with your child, when the daycare center is temporarily closed?
Oh no, oh no! - the Childcare is Gone!
Since summer 2010, the new Parent-Child Rooms have been a further instrument for improving the compatability of family, studies, and career at RWT Aachen.
Here students and university employees have the possibility to supervise their children at the last minute, flexibly, and in a central location, and in emergencies, to have their children looked after upon agreement with the Family Services Center. The rooms can also be used for playing or romping during breaks, for example between lectures or appointments. The rooms have space for multiple childen, so that parents can help each other, for example if they would like to take turns participating in learning groups, seminars, or meetings. Mothers of very young children also have the possibility to nurse or change diapers in a quiet atmosphere. In addition to the corresponding facilities for childcare, the light and colorful rooms offer a comprehensive collection of toys and children's books.
