A Box for Kids

With its new KidsBox, the Cluster of Excellence "The Politics of Inequality" adresses the care needs of Cluster members and guests who need to bring their children to work, or who need childcare during meetings and events.

As part of the Cluster of Excellence "The Politics of Inequality" activities for researchers with family responsibilities, the KidsBox provides customized support for pursuing a successful academic career while balancing work and family life. The KidsBox can be taken to the personal working space or meeting room for taking care of a child in exceptional circumstances. The KidsBox is a mobile nursery for babies and children up to the leaving age of primary school. It is equipped with wheels, which enable fast and safe transportation to your workplace.

On 6 March 2020, the KidsBox was opened in a small ceremony. Naturally, children were there for the occasion and immediately tried out the books, toys, and drawing materials. And of course the foldable mats and mattress as well as the traveling cot underwent extensive jumping and bouncing tests.

Please find more information about the KidsBox and its use as well as an online form for booking it here.
