Before your children are in the school system, creating a social network can be hard.  Luckily, there are several great playgroups and classes which will get you some much-needed adult conversation during the day.  For children who will eventually go into the Swiss education system, this can also be a great way for them to begin to absorb the language.  

International mum & Kids club

This club was founded in 1996, and has over 80 members. It is a non-profit organisation and runs on a volunteer basis with a free trial available before joining.

There are daily playgroups held at their club room which are age dependent, see their website for the current schedule.
