Red tape for babysitting from my home in Valais

Hello,
I am a British qualified primary teacher/ snowsports instructor living in the multilingual community of Nendaz, Switzerland.
Since having my first child, It has become apparent that there is a lack of early child care; the few maman du Jours are full, therefore I cannot get my son into care, so I can not return to work as an instructor this winter.
I have a great deal of experience teaching and nannying, with great references and families who always return to me for babysitting help.
Last winter I was swamped with requests for babysitters from tourists. So I was hoping to nanny again this summer/winter season, but hoped to do it from home, mama du jour style, this way I can work and also take care of my own son.i have experience taking care of up to 3 under 3 year olds at once and looking after large groups of 4+ year olds. I also received an outstanding OFSTED review when teaching a year 4 class in the UK, I thrive form working with kids.
Currently I have first aid certifications and plan to take out professional third party insurance specific for nannying. I recognize I can only look after 1 0r 2 children as well as my own 11 month old. Can anyone give me any advice on what other documentation I may need to legalize my home babysitting service.
What would you look for in a child care service like this?

Thank you in advance.

I know this is an old post but I wonder if you are still active on this forum. I am also in Nendaz. Some friends might be looking for some daycare for a ten month old whilst on holiday. Any advice?

Re: Red tape for babysitting from my home in Valais

It really makes me laugh when I read about Nendaz being multinational/lingual - it used to be our favourite haunts for skiing when my kids were young- and there were NO Brits, just a few Dutch and Belgians, in the 80s.

Yes, would love to know what happened with OP as I didin't see the post at the time. My advice would have been to go to the Commune and ask for an interview with the head of Education for the town. She would have been massively over-qualified for Maman de Jour, and should have been given permission.
