  • Description

    MUNICH - AND NEWS OF A PIONEERING DEVELOPMENT IN THE CARE AND WELFARE OF UNMARRIED MOTHERS AND THEIR CHILDREN.THE CITY COUNCIL HAVE BUILT A MOTHER AND CHILD HOME CONSISTING OF A BLOCK OF SELF-CONTAINED FLATS, A NURSERY AND KINDERGARTEN.EVERY MORNING MOTHERS GO OUT TO WORK, LEAVING THEIR CHILDREN IN THE NURSERY OR KINDERGARTEN.WHEN THEY RETURN IN THE EVENING, THEY COLLECT THEIR BABIES AND GO TO THEIR OWN FLATS.

    THERE ARE MORE THAN 50 FLATS IN THE BLOCK, FOR WHICH THE GIRLS PAY 73 DEUTSCH MARKS PER MONTH (GBP6).THE NURSERY LOOKS AFTER CHILDREN FROM SIX MONTHS TO THREE YEARS, WHEN THEY ARE SIX YEARS OLD, AND READY FOR SCHOOL.THE NURSERY AND KINDERGARTEN ARE SUPERVISED BY STAFF SPECIALLY TRAINED IN CHILD CARE.

    ALL VISITORS - INCLUDING FATHERS - ARE BARRED FROM THE FLATS, BUT THERE IS A RECEPTION ROOM ON THE GROUND FLOOR, WHERE THE GIRLS CAN ENTERTAIN GUESTS AND SHOW THEM HOW THE BABIES ARE PROGRESSING.

    THE SCHEME IS PROVING A GREAT SUCCESS, AND IS BEING COPIED BY OTHER TOWNS IN GERMANY.IT IS ALSO CAUSING GREAT INTEREST AMONG SOCIOLOGISTS AND CHILD WELFARE OFFICERS IN SWEDEN AND RUSSIA.
