FAQS - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW LONG CAN MY CHILD STAY IN CENTROLINO?
The dwell time is between 1 and 3 hours. We ask you to collect your children in good time, approximately 15 minutes before the next full hour, as the next hour will be charged upon the commencement of the next hour.
HOW MUCH DOES CHILDCARE COST?
For the supervision of your child in Centrolino, one payment contribution is due per commenced hour. Payment shall be made upon collection in cash. Per commenced hour the cost is 3€, while Centro loyalty card members enjoy a reduced price of 2€. The obligation of payment contribution arises with the agreed start of supervision.
WHEN MAY I NOT PLACE MY CHILD IN CHILDCARE?
A maximum of 40 children may be supervised at the same time (child carer ratio 1:10). We therefore ask for your understanding if we can not accept any further children at peak times.
Children suffering from fever, pain, severe cough, diarrhea, vomiting or visible discomfort may not be accepted.
Impuls is entitled to exclude children from supervision, or to cancel the supervision contract, if:
1. Die Betreuung des Kindes in Frage gestellt ist, weil Eltern nicht zur Zusammenarbeit mit dem Personal bereit sind.
2. Eltern derart gegenüber den Mitarbeitern von Impuls auftreten, dass Impuls als Arbeitgeber verpflichtet ist, sich im Rahmen seiner Fürsorgepflicht schützend vor das Personal einzusetzen.
3. Das Kind aus Gründen, die in seinem Verhalten oder seiner Person liegen, nachhaltig einen Betreuungsbedarf erkennen lässt, der mit den vorhandenen personellen Ressourcen des Betreuungsangebots nciht abgedeckt werden kann.
IS THERE A BABY CHANGING FACILITY IN CENTROLINO?
Yes, for small children we have set up a well-equipped nursery room. Please note that your child must be free of a diaper within the supervised area. IS THERE SPACE TO DEPOSIT BABYSTROLLERS?
Babystrollers and prams may be deposited in the area located beside the lockers.
MAY I AS AN ADULT ENTER CENTROLINO WITH MY CHILD?
Parents are allowed within the open play area. However, only children between the ages of 3 and 10 are permitted within the supervised area.
The childcare is intended to relieve adult caregivers. Adult caregivers may check in their children to the childcare service and enjoy shopping comfortably for one to three hours maximum.
MUST I REMOVE MY SHOES WHEN ENTERING THE PLAY AREA?
At the entrance to Centrolino there are lockers where jackets, shoes, bags etc. may be deposited. For hygiene reasons, we ask you to enter the playing area with only socks.
No liability is assumed for the loss, damage or misplacement of your child's personal belongings. We recommend to identify your belongings with names.
WHY MAY CHILDREN UNDER 3 YEARS OLD AND OVER 10 YEARS OLD NOT ENTER THE CHILDCARE?
From the age of 3, children are far enough in their development to normally feel comfortable in spending time along in a foreign care facility. From the age of 11, children are too big for the majority of the play equipment in Centrolino.
WHAT IF MY CHILD WOULD LIKE TO BE RETRIEVED EARLY?
Upon check in, the phone number of the adult caregiver will be recorded and thus we can reach you at any time and inform you if your child is requesting to be picked up.
Beim Check-In wird die Telefonnummer der erwachsenen Bezugsperson aufgenommen und somit können wir Sie jederzeit erreichen und über den Abhol-Wunsch des Kindes informieren.
WHY DO I HAVE TO LEAVE MY CONTACT DATA?
As a parent, you are required to provide staff with all data necessary for safe childcare and child pick-up. This includes, in particular, the personal data of the parents, which may be verified by an identity card or a passport.
