From memory, some Globegarden Krippe will do a service until 21-ish but it costs extra. Not sure if they still do it, though.

Never heard of a daycare center that goes till 22:00 on a daily base, if that is what you need you should find somebody who is willing to collect your kid at a steady time and take it to your home and put it to bed already. (or even better, have at least one parent pick up the child at 20:00 (Guexi for example goes to 20:00))

Re: Kinderkrippe Care until 22:00 at night

Could you not take turns in getting home a bit earlier? Or do you start work later in the day? If you work so much, maybe you should invest in someone who will look after your child on a more permanent basis like a nanny?

Shift work can be a bear in terms of scheduling childcare. You may find it more practical, affordable and comfortable for the kids to hire a nanny. As Edwin says, the routine for the children would get them home and possibly to bed at a reasonable time. I can't imagine what a Krippe would charge to feed your children dinner, if they even offered such a thing. In addition, if you have to stay late or trains are delayed, etc. a nanny is more likely to be able to stay later.

Another consideration - Is it truly worth your salaries to both do shift work and need non-traditional childcare hours? Unless you make big bucks I wonder if one person is essentially working solely to pay the childcare costs.

Best of luck to you.

There used to be a Krippe at Balsberg that was open later as people working at the airport needed later opening times, maybe check that?

Ours charges 20,- for the block from 18:00 to 20:00 and this includes a "high tea" as they call it, basically just a light evening diner like some rice with a tad of sauce which seems o.k. since at noon there is a steady warm meal. And it is more intended as a now and then thing when in need of overtime or such and not as a daily occurrence.

Re: Kinderkrippe Care until 22:00 at night

strampolino goes until 20h, and 7 days per week!

Baeretatze (http://www.popepoppa.ch/de/kita-baeretatze.php) can go until 21.30 if required.

No experience of either...just what I found by google

Hi All,

We ended up finding a good krippe that works with our time schedule. Very accommodating. For example: I can drop the kid off at 2pm, wife picks him up at 9pm. Or drop him off at 12pm and pick him up at 8pm. If anyone wants more information feel free to DM me.

Thanks for all the helpful responses. And special thanks to all of you who have nothing else better to do but try and shit on other peoples posts. Gave me a good laugh and made me happy that I have better things to do.

All the best

S

Re: Kinderkrippe Care until 22:00 at night

Out of curiosity, how do your children cope with this? What is their daily schedule?
I ask because mine are very fussy if not in bed by 20:00.
