Berlin parent representatives: Home office plus childcare is not possible

The situation in the Berlin daycare centers, however, is very different. “ The re are certainly daycare centers with a childcare rate below 30 percent,” reported Balkow. “Individual daycare centers are sure to be full.” But she also observed that Parents be very careful and sometimes do not make full use of care services. Some parents could live with limited childcare hoursespecially if there is to compensate for vacation or, for example, a child benefit bonus give. “
