Child minders (Day care mums - "Mamans de jour")

Canton of Geneva

Your child will be looked after for the time required during the day by a host family.

Host families are employed by childcare agencies who provide childminders and co-ordinate between the parent and childminder.  The centre also draws up the contract and co-ordinates the other procedures relating to this. 

In order to find a child minder, you must contact a childcare centre close to where you would like to have your child looked after. 


From 01/01/2011, the hourly charge is proportionate to income is charged and the childcare centre/agency will manage the payment of wages and social charges.

For more information, please contact your local childcare centre/agency.
