City Nord Day-Care Centres

Who knows its new generation well cared for, can concentrate completely on its work. The companies in City Nord attach great importance to the compatibility of family and career. Meanwhile, three local daycare centres with a total of around 360 places meet the care needs of many working parents for their children. They appreciate not only the high quality of care offered, but also the short distances on foot between the workplace and their children. Parents can even have breakfast or lunch with their offspring.

Kita City Nord
The first day care centre in City Nord was initiated by GIG. The new building was realized by an exemplary cooperation of several companies with the Elbkinder Vereinigung Hamburger Kitas and the city of Hamburg. At the opening ceremony on December 5th in 2006, the then Mayor Ole von Beust said: "I am impressed by this clever way of combining economic strength with pedagogical experience and urban support. The innovative joint project should set a precedent."
As early as 2009, the building of the day care centre had to be expanded, so that it grew from 60 places at the beginning to 100 places at the moment. In 2014 the day care centre received the Hamburg Education Prize.
