Yes, there is a great need for daycares BUT there are more regulations to follow. You might get started by talking to your Geminde. There's a requirement for minimum number of qualified staff per children. Also if they're there longer you have to have some cooking facilities and these too probably have to be approved. You have to worry about whether the existing location will be approved for a daycare too.

Here's a link in German with some of the regulations:

Best of luck in your venture!
Thank you Bookworm . These are indeed some of the points I was pondering about today. Thank you too for that link.

when buying a business your basically buying just the assets and maybe something for goodwill, so total up the company assets, decide how much each 'client' is worth and pay accordingly.
I disagree. Businesses that provide a service may have few assets but an excellent reputation and solid client base. The name alone might be worth having, if nothing else.

Re: Buying an existing playgroup.

If you are doing things in Lausanne though, the rules may be completely different so check it out very carefully.
