Is the kindergarten closed? Is there nobody, who can take care of the children at short notice? In such cases, the parents-child-office is a place, where you can bring the kids to have a look at them while you are working.
The facility has two workstations, a resting room with a cot, nursing and changing facilities. In addition, a meeting room, a bathroom and a kitchenette are available.
Pilot Project "Successful Research at Max Planck - also with a baby"
Thanks to the Max Planck Förderstiftung, as of July 1, 2017, the MPG will for the first time be able to subsidize the care costs of their smallest children between the ages of 3 and 12 months for postdocs with a TVöD contract and doctoral students with a funding contract. Parents choose the form of care and, upon proof, are reimbursed 50% of the costs or a maximum of 400€ per month, per applicant. The pilot project ends on December 31, 2021; the last application is possible until the beginning of November 2021.
