Brigitte Leicht
Brigitte successfully completed her training as a pedagogical specialist in Germany. Over a period of 11 years, she worked in a daycare centre in Germany, where she was the manager for two years. In October 2020, she moved to Switzerland with her family. After a year of parental leave, Brigitte took up the position of daycare centre manager at "pop e poppa Bäretatze" in May 2022. In order to fill this responsible role professionally, she successfully completed the SVF-certified "Leadership in team management" program during 2023. In addition to her demanding professional activities, Brigitte is pursuing her studies in social work at the Hamburg university.
I chose this profession because for me children are miracles who teach us, adults, the simplicity of life.

presentation of the daycare centre

Welcome to our Quali-Kita pop e poppa bäretatze. We are delighted that you are interested in our daycare centre. Our facility is located in the Lilienthal settlement in Glattpark, Zurich-Opfikon. The bäretatze daycare centre looks after children from the age of 3 months up to kindergarten entry and beyond. Our services include kindergarten care and lunch.

Our focus is on the children and we respect each child as a unique personality. Our educational concept combines the advantages of Montessori and Emmi Pikler pedagogy. Our daily goal is to promote the children’s development and strengthen their independence. We offer the children a wide range of daily educational activities that allow them to develop individually. With our Pep App, you can see what your child is experiencing at our daycare centre during your working hours. The development of each child is continuously documented.

Despite our location in the heart of a residential area, we have our own garden that reflects nature and the environment and is used daily by the children to play and explore. We offer regular excursions to explore the surroundings and gain new experiences.

Even in bad weather, our bright rooms with their own conservatory offer plenty of variety. We are looking forward to adding a vegetable garden to our range soon and attach great importance to a healthy diet in which we use regional, seasonal and, where possible, organic products.

Residents of the municipality of Opfikon can apply directly to the municipality for subventionned daycare places using a form.
