GFKB Day Care Centres
We focus on the well-being and individuality of the child!
We offer such an environment for children in which they feel comfortable and secure. We accept all the children, regardless of the reason why the parents bring their child to the day care centre.

Subsidized childcare places
The city of Zurich promotes childcare through subsidized day care places. The parental contributions for a subsidized place depend on income and are calculated individually.
We will offer your child a subsidized place as soon as you provide us with a valid contribution factor confirmation (Beitragsfaktorbestätigung), which you can receive from the school and sports department (Schul- und Sportdepartement). You can get the confirmation of the scope of childcare (Bestätigung des subventionsberechtigten Betreuungsumfangs) that is eligble for a subsidy from the Social Department (Sozialdepartement) of the City of Zürich.
You can find all the important information at www.stadt-zuerich.ch
