Green light for Planet Filli Future
Crèche and child minders under one roof: Fill has opened a childcare facility that is unique in this form in Upper Austria.
With the opening of the Planet Filli Future childcare facility on 1 September, a two-year mission of the Innviertel-based machine engineering experts reached its climax. The combination of day-care by child minders with a crèche is an innovative pilot project in Upper Austria. Children between the ages of 1 and 14 years can be catered for. During the course of a small opening ceremony, the youngsters accompanied by their families tried out the fantastic opportunities to play in the educationally valuable and otherwise very stylish facility.
Gurten, 7 September 2016 – “I’m very pleased to have reached another milestone on the path to Project Fill 2020 with the opening of our Planet Filli Future after a two-year mission. Here on day one, the children are already clearly quite at home in their new surroundings,” said project manager Bettina Fill at the opening in Gurten. The new childcare facility has 210 square meters of floorspace as well as a 200 square meter outdoor playground. In total, Planet Filli Future offers space for 22 children from 1 to 14 years old. The youngsters have a state-of-the-art infrastructure with individual play objects at their disposal.
Pilot project in Upper Austria
The educational concept of Planet Filli Future was prepared by the Innviertel Association of Child Minders under the management of Maria Schulz-Berger in consultation with the State of Upper Austria and Fill Machine Engineering. The combination of day-care by child minders with a crèche is unique in this form in Upper Austria. The capacity limit of 22 children will have already been reached by April 2017. Planet Filli Future is open all year round. At present, apart from Fill employees, it is also open to all interested parents and children in the region. One small step for the children, one giant leap for Fill your Family.
