Advantages for your child

Spending time together on a daily basis with one fixed caregiver in a stable childcare group helps children and adolescents to build close ties and trust. Shared recreational activities, like summer camps, excursions, games and sports, provide scope for creativity, fun and exercise. The qualified caregivers make sure to provide a stimulating learning environment, help children with homework and teach them learning strategies. They attach considerable importance to good cooperation and to consulting with parents and the school.

How much does a day care place in a Tagi cost?

The share of day care costs borne by parents is based on their financial situation, the size of the family and the agreed period of care. You can use the rate calculator (in German language) get an idea of what costs you should expect.
