Since 2006 Children First has been providing quality early years education in Zurich. Our experience of providing complete packages of care for international working parents has led us to specialise in teaching languages to very young children through play and a structured programme of activities throughout the day.

We feel privileged to be one of the first places outside the home where children make friends and begin their education; our multi-age groups are structured like a big family, in which each child is encouraged to enhance their individual personality, while learning to interact with others.

With us, children acquire fundamental life skills, as well as a solid academic foundation. The Children First Montessori-inspired methodology supports practical skills development and promotes creativity, problem-solving, care of the environment and sociable learning.

Full daycare places are bookable from 7:30am-6:30pm Monday to Friday. Children First is open year round, we close 5 weeks per year (Summer and Christmas).

New German classes available for multilingual children ages 2 to 7. Email contact(at) if you are interested.
