Chinderhuus Zumikon Association
What we want
"The Chinderhuus Zumikon association is an association within the meaning of article 60 et seq. Civil Code. It was founded in 1972. The purpose of the association is to professionally operate a childcare centre in Zumikon."
As dry, short and concise as the description of the task in the association's statutes is, as cheerful, lively, mostly accompanied by laughter but sometimes also tears is the hustle and bustle in and around the beautiful houses number 5 and 7 on the village square in the municipality of Zumikon.
We are committed to ensuring that the children entrusted to our team find security and care;
- they can flourish and develop among many friends
- their parents are aware of this and thus able to put their trust in it
To make this possible, we hire qualified personnel and ensure good working conditions and a good working atmosphere.
The approximately one hundred members of the association are residents of Zumikon, including many parents whose children were or are still being looked after in the Chinderhuus. They all thus demonstrate their conviction that providing care for children outside the family is important and a necessity. Through the general assembly they gain insight into the operation of the Chinderhuus and are able to voice their concerns and needs.
An elected board (Vorstand) directs the business of the association and supervises the management of the childcare centre. It defines a mission statement and implements it prudently.
The houses on the village square are provided by the municipality, which supports the operation with an annually recurring limited contribution towards the operating cost. This allows us to implement a variable tariff adapted to the financial situation of the individual families.
