Work and children under one roof

Expected opening in autumn 2012

A young child belongs with the parents. Parents are the most fulfilled among their peers where self-realization and recognition can be found…

What is goal of this project?

We would like to create a modern center for parents with young children on paternity leave. The center is designed in a way to enable parents to devote time to work, education, networking or relaxing, while their children are close by under the same roof and taken care for by professional educators.

Who we are?

We are four women of different ages, professions, with various parental and working experience. Endeavor to support active parents with small children brought us together. By supporting parents on their way to personal satisfaction would help to overcome obstacles set by society.

Who can benefit from this space?

  • Mothers/ fathers who are taking care for children full time, but do not want give up completely their professional and personal development.
  • For self-employed mothers/ fathers who need babysitting but wish to be near to and available for their children.
  • For those parents who wish to work part time and need not only babysitting but also working opportunities.
  • For women who need re-training and guidance prior returning to working place after parental leave.
  • For women and men interested in developing social and professional networks.
  • For parents seeking education and personal development while their children are provided with a quality programme.
  • For women who desire to relax with a massage or beauty treatment, while their children are cared for.
