A market for p/t hourly childcare?

I want to stretch my Nanny wings, and as a hobby set up a Kinderhueti, Friday mornings 8am-12 and all day Saturdays. I've spotted a room I like on Utelibergstr. near the Stassenverkehrsamt, so a little removed from the action but has good transport links. I would offer a supervised playroom on a hourly basis. On pick-up the child can have a babycino and the parent can have a tea/coffee/ hot chocolate of their choice!
If I take 5 children ( from 3 years old- no nappies) I don't need a permit, do you think there is a market and would it take off? Looking forward to your opinions!

Re: A market for p/t hourly childcare?

Hi,

I live in this area and there is already something called evokids just before Credit Suisse. I do not know the range of events/services they offer but I know they are "Spielgruppe".

And there is also a big place in Sihlcity which offers this kind of service+your are in the shopping center.

I hope I helped...

Of course because of Freisenberg Familienheim Genossenschaft there are a lot of children, but children in this area have a lot of places for spending creative time...

No I don't think would work. Only open on Friday morning and all day Saturday isn't attractive to me as a parent. It might work for some people but I think you would need to be open a bit more for it to take off.

+1. Start with Wednesday afternoons (maybe including lunch?) and I think you'll have loads of people knocking on the door.

Re: A market for p/t hourly childcare?

Thanks, useful! But as I cannot make a living charging 10-15chf per hour per child, Friday mornings, Saturdays and Sundays are only days I'm free around my 42-46 hour Nanny week.

How does everyone feel about Sundays?

Probably not allowed, they have funny rules about working on Sundays. I don't think many people would go for it, Sunday is for families even if you are not religious.
