Re: Swiss divided over maternity leave upgrade

The commune does not even know how many they will have free for next year, how should parents then know where to move to (it's not easy to terminate all contracts, like work contract, renting, etc.) in order to find that specific area with enough child care places, and a few years ahead since the lists are often 2-3 years long, and when you enter, there are hundres ahead of you (who will me moved up quicker, since they work in the commune/or are single/or have low income). Flexibility means different things, to locals, to new comers, to different communes, etc.
It must be different conditions in different cantons - here in Zurich city, any child in state school has a place at a lunchtime and afternoon care and holiday coverage.
