mandatory school age

What is the mandatory age for children to attend school in Switzerland? In particular, Zug, Zurich or Baar.

My family is considering a job offer in Zug, but I am wondering if the company will cover my youngest children's school costs (the offer is very vaguely worded, stating that eligible children are those of "mandatory school age." Haven't had a chance to follow up yet to clarify)

I think 4 in Zurich and 5 in Zug canton (with 4 optional) but it depends on month of birth.

Re: mandatory school age

How long are you planning to stay in Switzerland? Because unless it's just a relatively short assignment of 2-3 years, public school would probably be better for them and won't cost anything.
