School deferral in Vaud for 4-year old

How difficult is it to get a school deferral in Canton Vaud? My 4-year old son would be obliged to start school this autumn. I need to be abroad a lot over the next few months and need to take him with me. It would not be practical if he already starts school now. What do I need to do, so I can defer his schooling in Switzerland?

Interesting you find the need for your travel to be more important than your son's education.


Maybe private tutor is the way forward if you find the cantonal law not to your liking ?

I know this is not the answer to your question, but I wondered…
  • Are you a single parent?
  • If you took your son with you while you went abroad, what kind of schooling would your son receive during those months?
  • Is this upcoming stay abroad an unusual, once-off trip?
  • If you ever needed to travel abroad again later, once your son had started school, what would happen to him then?

I ask these questions because I think their answers would be relevant in any application you may make for his school start to be deferred.
