Gira childcare centre

In keeping with its family-friendly corporate policy, Gira has now reached another milestone. Supported by Radevormwald town council, the company has built a childcare centre on its premises. The centre was opened in October 2014. Young children from the age of six months up to the age of 3 are cared for in the Gira childcare centre.

Reconciling family and work

Successfully reconciling work and family is often a challenge, especially with regard to re-entering working life. As part of its family-friendly corporate policy, Gira places a great deal of importance on actively helping its staff to manage work and family life – with measures that make a noticeable difference. A crucial component of this is the Gira childcare centre, which opened its doors in October 2014. The Gira childcare centre will care for children up to the age of 3 – in other words, until they make the transition to a regular kindergarten. Gira is therefore making an important provision for the time when there tends to be an acute shortage of childcare services.

Concept and care services

The Gira childcare centre offers space for two groups of ten children each. This guarantees that high-quality educational care can be provided. To this end, only well-trained, state-approved childcare staff are employed. The children are also given breakfast and lunch as part of the childcare service. There are also plans to keep the centre open during the holidays so that optimum care that parents can rely on is provided during this time too. The Gira childcare centre is supported by the company Kita Concept. For Gira, it is important that the childcare centre be non-denominational and politically independent. Parental contributions for the childcare depend on the income-related table applicable in Radevormwald. A lively group of little ones in the Gira childcare centre is thus the latest addition to the company.

Architecture for wellbeing

During the planning phase for the building, special attention was paid to wellbeing and design. The building is optimally integrated into the hillside location and is in harmony with the surroundings. Preference was given to sustainable building materials. The building was topped with a wooden roof. The environmentally-friendly building material creates a cosy feeling and a good indoor climate. Since the children’s wellbeing is a matter close to Gira’s heart, it paid close attention to the interior design from the very start so as to cater to the needs of the children and their level of development.
