Galley, Lighthouse-room & Seagulls-nest

Galley, lighthouse-room and seagulls-nest are the names of the children’s spaces within the nursery of MEYER WERFT in Papenburg. In 2011 MEYER WERFT was already awarded with the quality seal for family-friendliness. Inspired by this, the nursery points the way for a better compability of family and career. Worrying about the child can cause a stressful atmosphere at work; therefore we try to support our employees with child care. In April 2013, MEYER WERFT opened its first in-house nursery. The nursery Nautilus has flexible business hours, operating from 7 am through 5 pm and provides child care for children under the age of 3 years, as well as a kindergarten group for children of 3 years and up.

Child care of high quality is being provided by specialized staff of the German Red-Cross, which makes the nursery Nautilus a showcase project in respect of child care. Currently, the German Red-Cross supports an overall of 1.300 nurseries, day care centers, kindergartens and playgroups nation-wide for children aged from two months up to 14 years.

The two-third majority of the nursery is reserved for the more than 3.000 employees of MEYER WERFT; the remaining spaces are available to children and parents from the local area.
