These daycare structures welcome children on a regular half-day basis without providing lunch.
From Monday 27 April, the nurseries subsidised by the City of Geneva will expand their minimum care service that has been in place since 16 March 2020. The City recommends that families call the facility which would normally take care of their child in order to check if there is space for him/her. This change in the care service provided is subject to the current health criteria as well as strict supervision standards. More information
