How does it work with the children in everyday life?
The parents arrive with their children at the booked time in peace and save themselves the previous trip to the daycare center. The bellies are full, the diapers are empty and the reception is very relaxed. While the children are greeted by the supervisors, the parents are almost sitting at the desk next door. At the end of the care period, the parents pick up the children and go home together.
At lunchtime, a quick meal can also be heated up in the kitchen area and given to the children. Parents are also welcome to leave small snacks or bottles in the children's cloakroom if the little tummies are already showing up in between. Then the carers don't have to interrupt the parents at work.
If a child needs to be close to mum or dad, the carers will let the parents know and the parents will come to the children's area where they can meet their child. Other common breaks are by arrangement with the supervisorInally possible, but should not disturb the group.
Please bear in mind that children sometimes have bad days and that things will not always go perfectly, which we should understand.
Do I have to stay on site or can I also attend external appointments?
Due to the special situation, the parent present must always be close to the child, i.e. at least reachable by phone and be able to be present within 10 minutes. Parents are responsible for supervision and liability.
Can I deduct coworking or even childcare from my taxes?
Yes. You will automatically receive an invoice from us. This contains all the important information to claim the costs. In certain cases, the youth welfare office also bears the costs directly. We help you with the how. And be sure to ask your employer whether it is possible to cover the costs.
Do you have events?
Yes, we organize and host small events.
