What do you need? Emergency childcare?

Because of the Federal Council's directive on March 16, 2020, we are closing our business and putting all activities on hold until further notice. But we're still here for you! 

Is our childcare centre closed? Do you need someone to get groceries for you? Do you just need to talk? Or anything else?

Call or email us. We're here for you, and we'll quickly and flexibly arrange anything we can. Stay safe.

Welcome to the playground paradise in the heart of Zurich!

Welcome to the playground paradise in the heart of Zurich!
Would you like to sit quietly in a café, go shopping in peace or enjoy some child-free leisure time while knowing that your child is having a good time and playing with other kids? Wouldn't that be something?
Know that your child is being well cared for while learning how to behave in a group and grow with other children. We invite you to come by our "Gloggespiel" daycare centre. Come and see for yourself - we are open to everybody!


"Dear Gloggespiel team,

I feel compelled to write to you about how happy we are now that B. is going to Cevi, but more specifically about the service this week. I was unaware that this week was a school holiday and that the playgroups were closed. I was delighted that you organized to have B. looked after so that I did not have to skip my German class or give up my free time before hand. I don't know any other place that would do this type of thing without charging extra. I am deeply grateful.

Please let me know if I can be of service to you at any point in the future. I would be only too happy to do anything to help promote your service.


Warm regards, R.P." (February 22nd, 2013) 

Flexible daycare "Gloggespiel" and playgroups "Glogge-Spielgruppe" and "Glöggligruppe" are offered by Cevi Zürich. Visitors may attend them according to their needs. 


For more information see "Offers & Prices".





Children of all backgrounds, cultures and languages are welcome at our daycare centre and we do our very best to care for each child, with all of their individual needs and character quirks. The YMCA and YWCA have been working for decades to empower youth and children and allow them to reach their fullest potential.

In order to do this, we avoid the overstimulation that has become common in our modern society and instead focus on child-friendly and age-appropriate supervision.

That is why, among other things, we offer a space for children to play and be creative, right at the heart of downtown Zurich. As a member of the World Alliance of YMCAs as well as the World YWCA, we also believe in the importance of trust and Christian values.

A place to play for your child – flexibility for you!
