We know just how complicated it can be to find a qualified and trustworthy childminder! To avoid wasting any more time, it's important to ask yourself the right questions about your choice of childcare: at what age do you want your child to be looked after, and by whom (public or private crèche, kindergarten, live-in nanny or daytime mom)? To help you in your search, we've set up a valuable partnership with BeeBoo, a serious recruitment & placement agency, with whom we've negotiated a deal just for MotherStories members!
To get you started, we'd like to offer you a simple, useful document to help you understand the differences, advantages & disadvantages of the different childcare options available to you.
Did you know that there is currently a shortage of over 5,000 crèche places in the cantons of Geneva and Vaud alone? At MotherStories, we know all about this complex and delicate issue. That's why we're keen to help you by offering an alternative solution that's both high-quality and, above all, trustworthy.
We work with BeeBoo, a recruitment and placement agency for nannies, nurses & babysitters in Geneva, Vaud and neighboring France. Having used BeeBoo in the past, and having received many positive testimonials from parents, we can only recommend their services.
And because we know that having your child looked after is a substantial budget, we have negotiated the following deal reserved exclusively for MotherStories members:
FREE BeeBoo application fees, i.e. :
- 400 CHF for a nanny on a permanent contract
- 250 CHF for a nanny on fixed-term contract (contract of more than one month)

8 tips for finding your ideal childcare arrangement Read the article
For the vast majority of families, finding childcare is like searching for the Holy Grail or the 7th crystal ball, a mission that is both difficult and sacred. Difficult because every parent has different expectations and schedules, and although there are many childcare solutions available, you need to find the one that best suits your lifestyle and that of your family. Sacred because it means entrusting your precious baby to other people for most of the day. It's a tall order, but not insurmountable!
Who's behind BeeBoo?
The BeeBoo agency was born of its founder's encounter with her new life as a mother. "As soon as my son Augustin was born, the question of a nanny quickly arose. How could we find the super nanny our family needed? It was surprisingly difficult to find an outstanding nanny to suit our schedules". A few years later, this former headhunter naturally came up with BeeBoo, to help parents find full-time or part-time nannies and trusted babysitters. Vaïluna D.
