Mobile toy boxes

Toy boxes can be borrowed from Family Services if a problem arises that forces you to bring your child to work for one day. They serve to occupy the children so that their parents can concentrate on learning or office work.

There are three toy boxes, each for the age groups 1-3 years, 3-6 years and 6-10 years.

The toy boxes are available from Family Services. If necessary, the toy boxes can also be brought to the workplace.
