Childcare options for school-age children
The city of Baden appreciates the importance of quality childcare centres for kindergarten and school-age children. Given the challenges of today’s society and the changing world of work, they play a key role in enabling parents to combine their careers and family obligations. Childcare centres support children’s development of social, cognitive, motor and linguistic skills, which in turn improves their integration into the school environment and ensures equal opportunities later in life. The city of Baden offers parents of school-age children a diverse range of childcare options designed around the standard school teaching blocks.
The following childcare options are subsidised by the city of Baden. You can use the day care centre fee calculator to work out the potential parental contribution necessary for your preferred form of childcare.
- Childcare programmes offered by the TaBa Association (Baden Innenstadt, Dättwil, Kappelerhof, Allmend-Münzlishausen, Rütihof)
- Association of ABB Childcare Centres (Meierhof und Hasel-Martinsberg)

Students can register to receive a healthy, warm meal or spontaneously drop by with their own lunch. The rooms have all the necessary facilities. Beyond the lunch offer, the event serves as a midday meeting place where students can socialise and relax.
