Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday
After the school day ends from 15.45 (15.30 in Küsnacht) to 17.30 or 18.30.

Our before and after school care accounts for today’s parental needs with respect to organising family life. Our staff provide a pleasant atmosphere and give each child the attention and care it needs. Depending on the children's interests, they play independently indoors or outdoors, engage in supervised craft activities, or visit playgrounds in the neighbourhood. Living together in mutual respect is taught and encouraged.

The broad selection and booking flexibility of our Day Care offers allow you to pursue your career whilst having a partner on your side that supports you with your child’s everyday school life.

If an After School Club of 45 minutes or more is attended during the time in Day Care, a one-time lump sum (number of weeks of the internal school offer x CHF 15.-) will be deducted. Deduction requests must be made to the school office in writing and done in conjunction with the registration of the After School Club.

Registration & FeesContact


Can I register my child spontaneously or during the semester for Day Care?

You can easily register your child for a fixed day care schedule at any point during the academic year. In addition, it is also possible to join on an upon-demand basis whereby you can register your child at any time by phone or via email. Upon-demand bookings are CHF 20.- per hour.

What After School Clubs are offered?

Each semester, we offer a variety of After School Clubs for children. Courses are organised and provided by external third parties and provide different activities throughout the course of the week immediately following the end of the school day.

Is there a notice period to terminate Day Care enrolment

While we observe a two month notice period for cancellations to Day Care bookings, we aim to be as flexible as possible with minor changes to enrolment.

Does Lakeside School offer holiday care for children?

During four weeks of the school year, we offer holiday care. This is in the first week of autumn, sports, spring, and summer holidays. Each week is dedicated to a special theme, and 1-2 related excursions are organised.
