Sand toys for daycare centers: LIfBi hands over donation to Bamberg District

Unexpected gifts for the children in the district of Bamberg: Just in time for the start of the playground season, the daycare centers in the region received sand toys from the Bamberg-based Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories (LIfBi). District Administrator Johann Kalb, Deputy District Administrator Bruno Kellner, Head of the Youth Welfare Office Tobias Dusold and Dr. Christian Lorenz, Head of the Education Office, gratefully accepted the donation. It will be distributed to the facilities at the next opportunity.

"We are delighted to be able to make the children in the district happy with this donation in kind," says Professor Cordula Artelt, Director of the Leibniz Institute. One of the reasons for the donation is the 10th anniversary of the founding of the LIfBi this year. The institute was founded in 2014 to provide a permanent institutional home for Germany's largest long-term educational research study, the National Educational Panel Study. Before the institute was founded, the Education Panel was run as a third-party funded project at the University of Bamberg. In the National Educational Panel Study, more than 120,000 people are accompanied on their educational path and regularly surveyed. Small gifts are often used as part of these surveys - in the survey of parents of small children, for example, these were sand toys, the surplus of which the Institute is now donating to kindergartens in the Bamberg district.

In addition to the daycare centers, the children who receive individual reading support from the MENTOR Association in the district will also be delighted. They will receive games of skill from the LIfBi donation, which will help to liven up many a reading lesson in the future.
