Romp around, play, explore the world with all the senses... for kids aged from six months to three years, our ColorLand crèche at the Heroldsberg site offers a wealth of options. A big activity room with ball pool, several function rooms with cosy corners, a water play area with lagoon, and a kitchen make ColorLand a unique oasis of wellbeing. A large, shady garden with play area provides the children with plenty of places to explore and discover.

Our employees have a total of 24 places available to them here. To ensure that the children receive the best care possible, ColorLand employs a centre manager, two teachers, three child carers, a dietician and a housekeeper – Monday to Friday from 7am to 5pm.

ColorLand was opened in 2016. It is supported by Kinderzentren Kunterbunt (KiKu), based in Nuremberg. “Kunterbunt” are experts in workplace childcare and have over 70 centres throughout Germany (as at 2018). The company’s aim is to offer modern childcare that meets the needs of the working mothers and fathers of today.

Childcare in the summer holidays

Every year, the summer holiday period poses a major challenge for working parents. Nurseries and schools are closed for weeks.

Our holiday childcare at the Heroldsberg site has been providing a varied service during the summer holidays for several years now. For three and a half weeks, a professional team of childcare professionals works with trainees and interns to take care of little ones aged between three and ten during their parents’ working hours.

Many employees take advantage of this offer. 30 to 40 children take part in the programme each week. The children are looked after on the company premises. During this period, meeting rooms are repurposed as play areas, reading corners and relaxation rooms. However, the children also go on excursions, for example to the swimming pool or fire station, or there may be an exciting visit on the premises. Fun and games are always guaranteed.


The Schwan-STABILO group is among the crème de la crème of German family-run firms. This is how the Stiftung Familienunternehmen (the Foundation for Family Businesses) distinguishes the 500 most financially successful companies in Germany, highlighting their “excellent economic performance”.
Our long-standing partnership with Bündnis für Familie (“Alliance for the family”) is a visible expression of our family-oriented corporate philosophy.
The Initiative familienbewusste Personalpolitik (“Initiative for family-friendly HR policy”) is a collaboration between the Chamber of Industry and Commerce for Middle Franconia in Nuremberg, the Federal Employment Agency in Nuremberg and Bündnis für Familie Nürnberg. The Schwan-STABILO group has been part of this exemplary network for many years.
The Goldener Kinderwagen (“Golden buggy”) represents family-friendliness in the world of work and is an accolade presented by Bündnis für Familie in the district of Erlangen-Höchstadt. In 2016 the certificate was awarded to Schwan-STABILO’s “ColorLand” crèche in Heroldsberg.
In June 2018, Schwan-STABILO received the renowned international “Prix Leonardo da Vinci” and was commended as a “particularly innovative, value-oriented and sustainably managed family company” at a ceremony in the Deutsches Museum in Munich. The prize was awarded by “Les Hénokiens”, an international association of bicentenary family companies from all over the world.
