Swiss German for a 3 years old boy

Hi,
child care is extremely expensive here in Switzerland.
Is there an alternative way I can have my son to spend time with Swiss children to pick up the language and be prepared for the kindergarten?

Thank you in advance for your answers.

Ekz him to local playgroups. I think they are called Muki or krabble groups. Groups where the parents stay with the children and children play. Enrol him in swimming lessons or other lessons.

- Spielgruppe
- music lessons for little kids - ask your local music school if they offer something
- go visit neighbors who have little kids, bring over a treat (cake or similar) and introduce yourself, giving the kids the opportunity to get to know each other. Perhaps that'll help your kid to find a mate to play with and hence learn the language.
