A World for Kids
Design the future of tomorrow
KiBiZ day-care centre Zug – an institution of the non-profit organization Zug (GGZ) - we strive for high-quality extra-familial childcare services that are affordable and focus on elements fundamental to a child’s growth in the town and municipalities of the canton Zug.
KiBiZ childcare Zug provides care to 280 children that range in age from infants through Kindergarten in nine conveniently located centres. Additionally, there are 250 spots available in the 80 childminder families for infants to school-age children of 12 years of age.
Advantages of KiBiZ
More than just Childcare
At KiBiZ, we understand that choosing the best care for your child is one of your most important decisions. We know that safety, education, and reliability are among your greatest priorities. And because of this, KiBiZ offers two options for childcare: on-site service facilities as well as childminder programs at their home. In the day-care setting, the community of children are encouraged to explore in and out of the classroom. KiBiZ childminders care for children in an in-home environment and offer individual and flexible solutions for your family. Offering two kinds of services brings even more advantages for your individual needs. We are here to discuss your unique situation so that your care plan meets all your needs whether it be scheduling challenges, environment desires for your child, etc.
Childcare cost in either a KiBiZ day-care centre or with a childminder may be subsidized depending on the municipality and the parents' income. Childcare vouchers are contributions from the municipalities to parents and legal guardians who have enrolled their child in a daycare centre and who are eligible for benefits. For care in a childminder setting, the subsidy contribution is calculated and processed directly by the KiBiZ office.
Integration and Experience
Since 1975, the non-profit organization KiBiZ day-care centre Zug, strives for high-quality extra-familial childcare services that are affordable and focus on elements fundamental to a child’s growth in the town and municipalities of canton Zug. We're well rooted in the canton Zug, in politics, the town council and in the professional field. As the leading institution in the provision of extra-familial childcare, KiBiZ day-care centre Zug, has been trusted for decades by parents and Zug municipalities.
Quality and Professionalism
We are professional, goal-oriented, and structured in all areas of our work. For the care team the child’s well-being plays a central role.
Our care providers are extremely dedicated, well-trained, and supported in their roles. They understand their critical influence in a child's life and take that responsibility seriously. They support the child's development during their formative years and how the child's safety, emotional and physical wellbeing are of great importance. They facilitate various practices that challenge and support cognitive development, social competency, emotional intelligence, and creativity. Our programs are in a German-spoken environment.
We also offer services for children with special needs upon individual bases. KiBiZ is certified by QualiKita and other accrediting agencies which have demanding requirements that often go above and beyond our canton’s minimum licensing requirements for childcare centres.
KiBiZ day-care centre Zug is affiliated with the non-profit organization Zug (GGZ), that was founded in 1884. Fundamental parts of this non-profit organization encompass inclusivity for all children's abilities and families of all economic levels. They share social and promote personal responsibility. With its various institutions, the GGZ is firmly rooted in Zug society and works in the areas of social affairs, education and culture, as well as youth wellness.

What parents say about us:
M.M. May 2023
Seit knapp 10 Jahren immer die gleiche Tagesmami, ich kann sie nur empfehlen, super tolle Betreuung. Ein herzliches Dankeschön für die wunderbare Jahren bei KiBiZ, es hat immer alles top geklappt.
L.B., April 2023
Super Kita - kompetente Mitarbeiter:innen, grosszügige Innen- und Aussenräume, herzliche Atmosphäre, abwechslungsreiche Menüs... Eine Wohlfühloase für Kinder! Danke für die tolle Zeit, Babsi und Hofmatt-Team 🧡
F.L. / März 2023
Ich habe grosses Vertrauen in die Arbeit der Mitarbeiterinnen (auch in dieser Kita üben vorwiegend Frauen diesen wichtigen Beruf aus) der KiBiZ Lorze. Mein Kind bringe ich im Wissen, dass es an diesem Ort gut aufgehoben ist. Den Kindern wird während der Betreuung wahnsinnig viel geboten, ihre eigenen Fähigkeiten werden geschätzt und gestärkt. Auch für die Eltern nehmen sich die Betreuerinnen bei Unsicherheiten und eigenen Beobachtungen gerne Zeit. Die Arbeitsbedingungen der Mitarbeiterinnen kann ich nicht beurteilen. Ich hoffe aber schwer, dass auch die Zufriedenheit der Betreuerinnen und insbesondere jene der Lernenden prioritär behandelt wird.
Familie M. / März 2023
Wir waren sehr glücklich mit der tollen Betreuung. Danke an das komplette Gartenstadt Team! Die liebevolle Betreuung ist sehr abwechslungsreich und lehrreich für unser Kind, inkl. gesundem Essen. Kann die Kita sehr weiterempfehlen.
Familie G. / Februar 2023
Bei der Entscheidung des Umzugs war der Austritt aus der Kita Frauensteinmatt das Thema, das uns am schwierigsten fiel. Unsere Tochter hat so viel profitiert und erzählt uns von den Betreuerinnen, welche sie lieb gewonnen hat. Nicht nur sie, sondern auch wir werden die Hingabe bei der Betreuung vermissen. Es gibt nichts, wo wir etwas auszusetzen hätten. Wirklich TOP.
Family F. / February 2023
We had a fantastic experience with Kibiz. Our child-minder was warm, friendly, and truly cared about our child. She communicated regularly and went out of her way to make sure he was comfortable and happy. She also organized events for the parents, and sent little thoughtful gifts home with him. The Kibiz staff was courteous, professional, and helpful. I recommend Kibiz to anyone looking for child care.
Family B. / November 2022
KiBiZ Tagesfamilien: Extremely helpful service, the concept behind is very well thought and the facilitation very well organized! Thanks a lot to the KiBiZ team and to the dedicated mums caring for the kids.
Family S./L / May 2022
Excellent and child-friendly environment and treatment of children. Our son loved the 4 years he went to Fuchsloch Kita, made friends and learned a lot. We are forever thankful for having had the chance to let him experience this important part of his childhood with the children and excellent staff at the Fuchsloch Kita.
KiBiZ Kita Eichwald has been absolutely wonderful for our family. We had just completed an international move to Zug, and I felt like the team at KiBiZ Kita Eichwald were our first family/friends in Switzerland. They were accommodating, kind, always professional, knowledgeable, and sensitive to the fact that our son was in a completely new environment. Our son has enjoyed his time at the Kita. He really loves the teachers and his friends. His growth in this environment has been astounding. I recommend KiBiZ Kita Eichwald very highly indeed.
Familie P. / Oktober 2022
Wir möchten uns bedanken für die wertvollen fast 5 Jahren der Betreuung und Begleitung in der KiBiZ Stampfi. Unser Sohn hat die Zeit sehr genossen und wir hatten stets das gute Gefühl, dass er bei euch wunderbar aufgehoben ist. Mit 6 Jahren und im 2. Jahr Kindergarten ist nun die Kita Zeit für ihn zu Ende. Er feiert heute seinen Abschiedstag. Wir blicken auf die schöne Kita Zeit zurück und sind sehr dankbar. Eine tolle Kita, welche ich immer weiter empfehlen kann.
Familie R./T. / August 2022
Es waren 5 wunderbare Jahre! Unsere Tochter liebt Ihre Kita Guthirt und wird sie bestimmt vermissen. Das Personal war stets freundlich und sehr zuverlässig und hat die Kinder wunderbar betreut. Wir Wünschen Ihnen weiterhin alles Gute und viel Erfolg!
Family K./M. / June 2022
I would like to say a big thank you to KiBiZ as it helped me to sort out a day mother in a timely manner. Daniela (KiBiZ Intermediary) is so kind and helpful. Tagesmutter E. is superb. She is so sweet and patient and I feel my daughter is in safe hands with her. She is very good with kids and my daughter loves her. I wish her all the best and also KiBiZ.
Familie H. / May 2022
Unser Sohn hat die Kita Guthirt fast 5 Jahre besucht und er erinnert sich gut und gerne an die wunderbare Zeit und die vielen schönen Erfahrungen, die er mitnehmen durfte. Absolut empfehlenswert! Wir fühlten uns stets sehr gut aufgehoben. Mit vielen schönen Erinnerungen und tollen Freundschaften hat er nun seinen Abschied gefeiert und wir möchten uns von Herzen beim ganzen Team für Ihren Einsatz bedanken!
Learn and Grow
Tip nr. 1:
You have great options
As parents prepare for the birth of their new baby, they often will start thinking about childcare. This can be overwhelming without the right information. We strive to educate parents on our offerings and the importance of a well designed program of care for their baby or child.
While there are many day care centre options, there are also many factors that go into this decision. Location, availability, schedule alignment, safety, curriculum, facility cleanliness, language offerings are some of the critical components to finding the best placement for your child.
We like to help you make this decision a little bit easier with our tips to consider as you try to find your perfect place:

Tip nr. 2:
Childminder or Day-care?
Many parents ask themselves, whether to have their kids taken care of in a day-care centre or with an in-home childminder. What are the differences and what are the advantages to each care model?
Learn about the two care programs:

Tip nr. 3:
Day-care: Our care providers are qualified
It goes without saying - parents want to ensure that their children are well taken care of while they pursue their professional careers. Accordingly, the demands of good quality day-care is at a very high standard. Our team of trained professionals are qualified through experience, education, and character.

Here is an overview:

Tip nr. 6:
"Reggio" inspired pedagogy
We align with the "Reggio" approach, where every child is competent and strong in their abilities to learn. We believe in child-led learning and the value the child's peers play in their development.
We also value the physical space the child will be in for much of the day. Whether this is within a calm, neutral and organised classroom or if it's outside in nature or on the playground. We believe the environment has a great impact on the children's ability to learn and absorb the world around them so we have taken careful consideration and thought behind our centre designs and the standards created for our childminders that open their home.
