On the basis of the rates applicable since 1 November 2019, and in order to incorporate the price increases in the City of Geneva, a price indexation of 0.49% will be introduced on 1 August 2022. A price schedule, a price simulator and a series of FAQs are available.
An online procedure enables you to enrol your child for a form of childcare.
Parents are invited to visit the BIPE offices located at 8 rue du Cendrier, Tuesdays from 8.30 a.m. to midday and Thursdays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., by appointment via Agenda.ch. Families can also contact the Early Childhood Information Office via the hotline on 022 418 81 81, from 10 a.m. to midday, every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, or by e-mail: @email.
Simplification of the system
From 1 November 2019, the fees will be calculated on the basis of the tax statement provided by the cantonal tax office instead of the numerous documents required until now.
For people who do not receive such a tax statement, the calculation will continue to refer to the statement of annual earnings and other useful documents. In the event of a change in family situation or income (+/- 20%), this rate can be revised during the course of the year.
The rate calculated will be set for the entire academic year, thereby enabling families to incorporate this into their budget precisely. Furthermore, families will only have to provide one single document.
Increase in fees
The contributions of families to the cost of enrolling a child in the institutions will be adapted in order to take account of rising prices. The scales applied by the City of Geneva will also more closely reflect those applied by the other municipalities.
A floor price will be introduced while the maximum rate will be set at 20,000 francs per year. Furthermore, the contributions requested from the families will be subject to a slight increase.
Deduction of childcare costs
The increase in childcare costs will be offset by a change in the law relating to the taxation of natural persons, which will enable families to deduct effective childcare costs up to 25,000 francs per child (instead of 3,992 francs as at present).
To benefit from this deduction, you must keep the certificate of your childcare costs which will be provided by your childcare institution and include it with your next tax declaration.
This reform guarantees increased transparency and greater equality for all families.
