The mission of the institution is to enable a network of safe and family friendly places for quality family time as well as to support families with pre-school children in the broader sense: to offer a place to play, to socialise, occasional child care, counselling to parents plus education on the care and upbringing of children and courses in preparing for childbirth.
We are more and more active in supporting and educating young parents; not only with regular lectures, counselling and support group meetings but also wider projects, like publishing books and manuals for young parents.

Childeas - Tiny Little Thoughts

With the project “ZAMISLICE” (CHILDEAS – Tiny Little Thoughts), ISSA member from Slovenia, Mala Ulica  wished to acquaint all new parents with the importance of early interactions. They provided parents with a pendant that can also serve as a pram mobile – a small, but important gadget that offers 30 handy cards with ideas for simple activities with babies which promote the child's overall development, anywhere, any time. In addition to description of a concrete activity, each card contains a brief explanation of why this activity is important and how it will foster child development.
