Day care

Kiriku is a day nursery for children from 3 months old to school age. The admittance of children to our nursery takes place irrespective of ethnic origin, nationality, religious beliefs or earning capacity of the parents.

The Kiriku nursery holds a license of the guardianship agency of Lucerne (Luzerner Vormundschaftsbehörde) and works according to the guidelines of the SLV (Sozialvorsteher-Verband Kanton Luzern).

The nursery adheres to recognized educational principles. Every group of children is being supervised by a qualified nursery teacher and an apprentice or intern at all times.

The daily routine in the nursery is structured according to the individual needs of the children. The days at the nursery are well-balanced with a variety of activities like playing in- and outdoors and exploring their world in a stimulating environment, as well as eating and relaxing during down-times. Weather permitting we take the children outside every day, for them to let off steam, play and generally experience and enjoy the outdoors. There are many recreational areas, woods and play grounds close to the nursery which we visit frequently.

Admission and Contract of Care
It is possible to enroll your child in the waiting list of our nursery (tentative enrolment). We need you to sign a contract of care to be able to admit your child to Kiriku on a regular basis. Every child joining our nursery will be given a certain time to settle into this new environment. The settling in period lasts for 4 days and is structured according to the needs of each child individually. The parents play an important part during this settling in period, depending on the child, the presence of a parent will be required for some hours during these first days in the nursery.

Fees for the attendance of Kiriku are charged on a monthly basis. Please see the fee table for more detailed information.

Payment and Notice of Termination
Parents will be billed for the days as stipulated in the contract of care and the monthly fees are to be paid in advance. Payment of a deposit is not required. It is mandatory to arrange a standing order (bank or post bank) for the payment of the nursery fees to ensure timely payment.  Termination of the contract of care is possible at the end of each month with a notice period of three months.
