English speaking nursery in Zurich

Hi,

I'm new to the forum. I am a 40 year old Frenchman who is going to move to Zurich.
I would like my 2 1/2 year old son to learn English rather than German, so i am looking for an English speaking nursery in Zurich.

The ones I have seen cost 2400 CHF a month, which seems a bit pricey!

Would you please have any ideas, any names to recommend?

Thanks a lot.

Yves

The price of Krippes are based on the expenses a Krippe has which in turn is heavily based on regulations. Thus, all Krippes cost more or less the same, English or Swiss. The only major influence on price is location. The Krippes out in the country-side is cheaper than the once in the City due to slightly more leanient rules and cheaper room-cost.

Re: English speaking nursery in Zurich

There is variation in price. If you want all-day-care, though, it will be between 130-150chf per day. Some have minimum attendance requirements too...

I can recommend you look at two options where I know the management and staff:
www.happynest.ch - the lady who owns and run this one is on our forum. It's not a long-day-care although the care hours are pretty long.
Edited to add: I think you will find their fees much more reasonable...and it would suit a non-working parent who can take them at their convenience...

The other one to try is :
www.childrenfirst.ch - I believe they are the only english 100% licenced long day care in Zurich and I worked there last year and loved it!

If you are looking bilingual, then there are heaps of options...if you want Montessori bilingual English/German/French then I can also give you some suggestions - please PM me for that...

ok, thank you!
I will investigate these 2 links.
They look really good if my wife does not work full time.

Yes, if they hold a licence with the Association Montessori Schweiz, they will be listed on this website:


https://www.montessori-ams.ch/einrichtungen.html


The list does not specifically separate the bilingual ones, but usually first you need to find the ones that area accessible to you and then to contact them individually.
