Open house on November 5
In October, the first children began to settle into the day care, half a year after the sod turning.  "Right now, we still have a few spaces left," says day care center manager Bettina Geißler, "but interested Augsburg parents should submit their applications as soon as possible, because they are going fast." She is also looking for one more day care worker to complete her team.

In total, six day care workers and caregivers look after the children at the center. Opening hours are from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and parents have the option of leaving their children from three to ten hours during this time. The day care workers prepare fresh snacks for the little ones and KUKA's plant cafeteria provides children's meals at lunch. Bettina Geißler and her team are currently looking after thirty children aged six months to three years.  The facility has a total area of 480 square meters and there is lots of space to play, romp and rest. 

The day care center is financed by Orange Care e. V., a charitable organization founded by KUKA employees that supports people in need, especially young people and families. 

The day care center is meant to serve all Augsburg parents.
