At Home Child Care Biz Questions

Hello!
Does anyone knows or can point me towards where can I get information regarding the proper paperwork required to care for toddlers 3+ years old out of own private home please?
I tried Googling this but cannot understand it.
It could be beneficial to know:
  1. Permits
  2. value of Liability insurance for up to 5 kids,
  3. **MOST IMPORTANTLY is someone EU with a B permit allowed to do it?
  4. If Q#3 is yes, how to declare taxes...
  5. Timing from when applying for license/permits, if any, to obtain them and get clear to operate?
  6. Are there any inspection of the premises from the appropriate department?
Any help in English is highly appreciate please and thank you.


C.

Re: At Home Child Care Biz Questions

maybe here?

It, too, is in German, and I guess that if you're looking to run your own business, you will have so many dealings with government departments, and all the people you will meet along the way when out caring for the children, and dealing with the premises, insurance agents, etc., that you'll need a fair command of German, or else to find someone to whom you can delegate the Gemarn parts.

And this government department of Zurich offers advice for parents needing child-care, and perhaps they would be able to point you in the direction of the body which regulates such services. https://www.stadt-zuerich.ch/ssd/en/...betreuung.html Some years ago I heard that anyone wanting to start up a kindergarten or creche can borrow, from the municipal department concerned, a set of 2 or 3 fat lever-arch files, in which all the procedures are set out, all the forms, etc. so one can peruse it thoroughly in order to test the idea agains reality.


And here, https://www.stadt-zuerich.ch/sd/de/i...onsmodell.html if you click on the first point below "Subventionen" you will be able to download the "Verordnung" (= rules that govern child-care facilities), sorry, once again in German.


I don't mean to put a damper on your idea, because certainly many parents struggle to find affordable child-care. And if you do it in English, you might find that some expats of the top income bracket may be happy to pay higher fees (I don't know, that's just a guess). So yes, I think there is a market. I just don't see that you're likely to be able to fulfil all the rules about number of toilets, hygiener regulations, liablity insurance, registrations, police clearances, etc. unless you have someone to help you who is competent in German.

Re: At Home Child Care Biz Questions

Here is a related thread by someone wanting to start a business, albeit of a different kind. I presume at least some of the information there may be relevant to your venture.

Re: At Home Child Care Biz Questions

This is going to be very Canton specific so you would need it for where you live or work, assuming Zurich. So I could help you finding the laws and rules for Vaud, but they will be very different. Around here the Canton office of protection of the children has all of this info, so likely the similar Zurich office would have the same.

Re: At Home Child Care Biz Questions

Im a tagesmutter of 2 Kids (2,5 yo and another coming next year) and employed by the parents. We work together on the Registration procedure and deal with the paperwork once a year and thats it. Thats the easiest way to do it. The Gemeindehaus will help you with the Details. Ist more complicated to make it a Business, they have a high Standard for the facilities etc and will come and check your place.

Re: At Home Child Care Biz Questions

What your proposing is called a "Tagesmutter" and it's not too difficult permit wise. There are day-mums who work through the commune and those that work privately. The legal amount of children a day are 5 including your own.

Try this site maybe someone speaks English.

Good luck.

Yes, thank you!
The Canton is Herrliberg, I think that another member here is right! A tagesmutter is what this is called for the time been, as it makes it easier with the paperwork etc...
