CHILDCARE
It is an important priority for IST Austria to make life for scientists as easy as possible. These efforts comprise a kindergarten on campus, with English and German speaking caregivers.

Since 2014 the Kidspoint GmbH was appointed by IST Austria to manage the childcare center "FROSCHKÖNIG". The following group structure exists:

  • Kindergarten group “THE RAVENS”:    children from 3 years till grammar school
  • Day-care group “THE BEARS”: children from 3 months till  grammar school
  • Day-care group “THE RABBITS”: children from 3 months till grammar school (opening in September 2017)
  • Day-care group “THE BUTTERFLIES”: children from 3 months till grammar school (expected opening in January/February 2018)

The Kidspoint GmbH was launched  from an initiative of parents and regional politicians in collaboration with the “Kinderfreunde Lower Austria” in the year 2002. As of the year 2005, more facilities were started in cooperation with communities to create childcare facilities, hoarding and after-school-care. The Kidspoint GmbH currently operates a number of children's educational institutions throughout Lower Austria.

Opening hours:
Open year-round Monday to Friday 7:30-17:30 (except Christmas time)
Flexible times Monday to Friday 7:00-7:30 and 17:30-18:30
