  • Le Chaperon Rouge (Little Red Riding Hood) is a service that looks after children at home 7 days a week whenever a problem arises concerning children aged between 0 to 12 years of age.  The agency looks after sick children, provides emergency childcare and stands in when the existing childcare facility is not available. 
    Uni-emploi helps connect students at the University of Geneva with individuals through the services it offers online. An annual fee of CHF 30 is required to access this service.  The University also suggests recommended hourly rates.
  • Dépannage bébé: The Meyrin commune offers an emergency childcare service (once the child is registered), for children from 4 months to 2 years of age.
