Frequently asked questions


How much space do I need for a KindHaus creche in my building?

Our creche service ranges from 190 sf for 5 children to 950 sf for 30 children. We work directly with operators to recommend the best size depending on customer experience, occupiers, building density.

Do we need planning permission to build creche in our workspace?

With the new commercial property use classes that came into effect in September 2020 the opportunity to have a creche in your workspace has never been easier. Workspaces and childcare both fall under Use Class E.

Do we need OFSTED approval before opening a creche in our workspace?

We work closely with the Early Years Compliance team in each borough we operate in to ensure our creche services are safe and to OFSTED standard. OFSTED approval is not required to operate a creche where children are in our care for 4 hours of less a day. However, we are voluntarily applying for OFSTED approval for the added peace of mind it gives to our parents and partners.


What KindHaus services can we choose from?

The creche facility is the core KindHaus offering giving time-pressed modern parents the headspace they need to focus on wellness and work. In addition to this we can provide wellness rooms, lactation rooms, barista service and in-house play spaces.

How much does it cost to build a KindHaus creche in our space?

The set-up cost depends on a variety of factors including the creche size and the existing condition of the building. CapEx is budget-friendly. Example - An essential creche offering in a new-build venue for 6 children under the age of 5 could cost £4800+.

What are the ongoing costs to run KindHaus in our space?

The management fee depends on the number of children and services required.  An essential creche offering for 6 children under the age of 5 would be £240 per session. If you ran the creche three days a week the monthly cost would be £2880.

How do we get started?

It can take 4-6 weeks from contract to full implementation, depending on the number of children and condition of the space.
