The Childcare information office (Bureau d'information petite enfance - BIPE) centralizes applications for all subsidized facilities in Geneva. Parents who reside or work in the City of Geneva can apply by means of the form available on the City's website, fill it in and send it by post or fax to the BIPE. Applications are recorded upon reception of the duly filled in form.
Applications are possible from the 12th week of pregnancy.
If a suitable space becomes available, you will be contacted directly by the institution where your child could be placed. Important: applications must be reactivated every three months or they are cancelled. People who work at UNIGE and live in Geneva can apply both to the BIPU and the BIPE. Spaces in childcare facilities are very scarce; families are therefore encouraged to maximize their chances by considering multiple childcare solutions.
