Daycare centres Zurich
In addition, our daycare centres were awarded the Eco-Friendly Certificate 2022 and are perfectly accessible by public transport and bicycle. All pop e poppa daycare centres in Zurich offer space for movement, but also opportunities for retreat. The rooms are child-friendly and the range of materials, books and games is constantly changing. Free play plays an important role. Through free play, even the youngest children acquire knowledge about their environment. We also take into account the children’s stage of development and support them in their educational and developmental processes with the help of the five pop e poppa quality impulses.
Some of our daycare centers have been awarded the QualiKita quality label. Certified daycare centers focus on the development of the children and continue to develop as an organization and team.
