More time and less guilt

You would like to work in your job again after parental leave but you do not yet have childcare for your child? And then there’s that queasy feeling of being separated from your child for a long time for the first time … That’s how founder and managing director Julia Pedersen and mum of Maya felt. It is an uncomfortable truth of modern living, but research on the harm of separating children from parents is astounding – children experience high levels of stress when starting day care and their cortisol levels remain elevated for as long as five months after their first day of separation for their parents.* Working parents also struggle with the additional time it takes their children to return to “emotional equilibrium” each night. 

This is how a Sandburg Hub supports working parents

With a Sandburg Hub in your company or in your city, you don’t only save yourself the tedious search for professional and loving childcare, you also no longer have to take your child to a separate childcare facility and pick them up again from there: a Sandburg Hub is an office inside a nursery, open 12 hours per day. This saves a lot of time and guilt – because with a Sandburg Hub you have more flexibility for work and family. Here is an example of what it might look like:

We turn work-life-balance into work-life-combination

We actively dispel the myth that children need to be completely separated from their parents for the parent to work effectively. 

Our Proof of Concept shows that both children and working parents are happier when they are close by. At increased productivity levels for the parents!

Monthly fixed fees

As far as the monthly fixed fees are concerned, we aim to be no more expensive than your local daycare. Pricing models for parents depend on the model agreed on with the Sandburg partner (your employer or municipality) and other factors such as your salary and the age of your child.
