Thanks for your contributions!
I am moving to the Nyon area.
What I have found out is that there are these assistente maternelle agree (certified by the French state) that basically have a certification from the state to welcome up to 4 kids at home.
They recieve a salary per kid which is substantially lower than any other maman du jour in Switzerland, at least that is what I have been able to find out.
So the way it works is that every morning i would cross the border and leave my son to the assistente maternelle I have selected and i would pay them every month a rate that is "governed" by the state and it's much cheaper than Switzerland.

Obviously if I would live far from france i would not take that as an option, but living so close make think to alternatives in CH and FR.
Question is if this is really an alternative or if i cannot take advantage of this option in France as living in Switzerland.
