Looking for babysitting/nanny Agency in Zürich

Hi there,

I'm in a bit of a pickle, I have the last module of my master's coming up and Trollefar just learned he's going to have to travel abroad during the exact same week.

Can anyone recommend an agency providing punctual childcare in Zürich? I would need someone to pick the Troll up at school, have him do his homework, give him dinner (I will cook in advance, it will only need re-heating) and get him ready for bed. On 2 of the nights I will definitely be home before bedtime, the 2 last nights the program lasts longer.

The reason I want to use an agency is that we otherwise almost never need that kind of help, and since we are a bit last minute I don't really have time to conduct interviews for 4 afternoons/evenings.

Thanks, will investigate. Someone at the troll's school also mentioned Rock My Baby, but she hadn't used it. Apparently I'm the only person in Zürich who's ever had a child-minding crisis... (yeah, right!) or admitting to it.

Have a look here, you'll find a list called "Liste BabysitterInnen Vermittlung".

Tanya from Rock my Baby is very helpful so i have heard. x
Or you can use tolls on here to find someone or on FB .... a lot of people use a Aupair group on there to find families or find child minders. x

[Update]

I contacted Rock my Baby, but the process was somewhat more complicated than expected so I swallowed my pride and asked other parents at the Troll's school if ey could take him in the evening. So he spent one evening here, one evening there and a night in a third place. We were alle exhausted by the end of the week, which was a good logistical test for the day where I'll (hopefully"0) start working again.
