The Saint Rachel Day Care welcomes twenty-eight babies each day, allowing the migrant and asylum seeker mothers to look for work. There are seven strong women who look after these little ones.

The day care center opens its doors each day at 7.30 and closes them at 17.30, ten hours during which the babies are not only cared for but also encouraged to learn, to grow and to interact. Seven women from diverse backgrounds work with the babies, ensuring their safety, well-being and growth.
