Why doesn't this concept, in this magnitude, exist in Switzerland?

This is a question we have also asked ourselves. The answer? We can also only speculate. On the one hand Coworking and childcare care are two different branches of business, which each work very well on their own, but in actual fact are quite dissimilar. That is, combining the two requires conceptual work. On the other hand it is simply a matter of someone taking the first step. And as we all know: No risk, no win. We all want to win. We all want more flexibility and compatibility. 

Does this concept exist in other countries?

Yes. In Berlin juggleHUB is successful, Huckletree West in London has a (non-supervised) Kids Space and in the USA, The Wing (the most successful Coworking provider for women) started The Little Wing - Coworking with childcare for parents.

In this case, can I only work at Tadah if I bring a child to be cared for in the Kids Space?

No. With us you are also able to just co-work.

Can I bring my child to be cared for in the kids space and not work in the Tadah Coworking Space?

No. Our clients are permitted to leave the Space for a maximum of four hours per day to attend an external meeting. In principal the following rule applies: the parents work in the Coworking Space, the children are cared for in Kids Space.

Do I have to reserve my spot in the Coworking Space in advance?

No. Only the child care has to be booked in advance. 

What type of Memberships do you offer? 

You can find an overview of the Tadah-Memberships here.

What happens with my booking, if my child is sick or in case of some other unexpected event?

Bookings can be cancelled free-of-charge, up until 24 hours in advance (preferably via phone).  Cancellations on shorter notice, will be invoiced.  

Why is Tadah not a child care center with the corresponding authorization?

Because the legal guardians work under the same roof (but not in the same room), we are not required to have the relevant permit. Despite this we are only allowed to separate the parents from their children for a maximum of four hours per day. That means the parents can also go to a meeting with clients and the children to a playground. Our childcare personnel are professionally qualified and our Kids Space words with an educational concept.

How do we guarantee optimal flexibility and stability for the children at the same time?

With their presence throughout the week and with their professional qualifications, our professional team on location guarantee stability. In addition we design the program and the rooms of the Kids Space in such a way that they provide uniformity for the children. Experience also shows that while parental flexibility is important, small children also require fixed places. That means: when the children are brought to Kids Space on a regular basis, Kids Space becomes a trusted environment for them.

Will I see my child?

No, the Kids Space and the Coworking Space are on different floors. 

How old must my child be to be cared for in the Kids Space?

Tadah Kids Space cares for children from the age of 3 months up to start of school age.

Can I split my membership days flexibly?

We charge your membership in half and full day increments only. You can use your membership days flexibly and for example visit us for half days instead of full days – during the weekdays of your preference. For example on a Tuesday afternoon one week, the other week on a Wednesday afternoon or on multiple days. The one thing to remember is to use up your days during each membership cycle (run time 4 weeks). 

How can I use a half-day drop-in?

A half-day pass allows you to work at our space for 5 hours during one day. You can use your half-day in any way you want, for example from 8am to 1pm or from 10 to 3pm. Whatever works best for you. It’s important to note, that you half-day expires at the end of the day, even if you might not have used it up entirely. 

How can I use a full-day drop-in?

A full-day drop-in allows you to work at our space for 10 hours during one day. It’s important to note, that you half-day expires at the end of the day, even if you might not have used it up entirely.
