Babysitting Services in Switzerland? (Current need is for next month in Sierre)

Hi all -

I do not have any kids, but have friends visiting who do and am not sure how to help them find a babysitter? Are there websites/services here where one can hire a trusted babysitter? Are they good? Any tips that I should be aware of/think of as a non-parent looking out for my friends' kids?

The current need is for one six year old to be watched during my wedding in Sierre next month (Oct 12) so both parents can attend (we have decided to have an adults only reception), so if anyone has any bright ideas specifically for that situation I'd be happy to hear them (doesn't need to be a service). But I'm anticipating this will come up again where we live in Aarau so a website that has people all over CH seems ideal.

Thanks in advance!
Danielle

Contact the Red Cross in the region that you are interested in. They put on babysitter courses all over Switzerland and then the qualified ones can add their name to a list. Or check with the local Frauengemeinschaft as some of them help coordinate the Red Cross courses and know who is qualified but choose not to be on the public list.

Thanks everyone! I'll pass this on to my friend and hopefully we can get her a good babysitter so both parents can attend more of the wedding weekend and get some adult time!

If anyone has specific experience with any of these options, or other suggestions, happy to hear those as well!
